A Stroll with Hans Christian Andersen

10 Nov

Fun Fact: In Odense, Denmark (the hometown of reknowned storyteller Hans Christian Andersen) the crosswalk symbols are little Hans Christians. I learned this and much more about Odense (named after the Norse god Odin) at the International Awards for Livable Communities held this weekend in Chicago. I have to say, of all the presentations I’ve seen, Odense was my favorite. I may even have to add Odense to my list of places to visit when I study abroad.

Note: Odense also hosts an annual Harry Potter fest. I want to go to there.
