Aggressive Danish goat

last weekend our family visited Copenhagen Zoo. However, we were very surprised by your aggressive goats. In the "goats garden" one of the goats (a black-greyish one) attacked and stole my son's newly bought ice-cream. If you have goats around kids I think it is your responsibility to discipline the goats. 
Please confirm that you have received my invoice for the lost/stolen ice-cream (20 DKK).
Best regards,
Tim Fredriksson

Oh, that goat must have been hungry – and with a sweet tooth to it...  

This is of course rather regrettable and we apologize !

I have just checked and actually there is a sign at the enclosure saying that feeding of the goats is not allowed. This is not only out of respect for the animal’s health, it is actually also to ensure that the goats do not approach the kids in an unwanted way.
Naturally I am aware of the fact that your son did not feed the goat – but it also means that it is a bit unwise to bring in a child carrying an icecream.
We hope you understand why we are not able to consider your mail as an invoice for DKK 20.

Do we need to cremate Wilsson?

From: tim.fredriksson@gmail.com

Hi over there,

I am Tim Fredriksson from Sweden and soon me and my family are planing to visit New Zeeland. One of our main goals with the trip is to bury our beloved dog (a charming border collie named Wilsson) in the beautiful national park of Mount Cook. In his 12 year long life WIlsson really loved nature so we know that he will find peace in a scenic place such as Mount Cook.

However, one questions:

1) What is the correct way to declare the remains of Wilsson at the custom? What kind of good is he considered to be? (He is not cremated, but well concealed in plastic bags in order to avoid bad smells).

Best regards,
Tim Fredriksson

Legoland is just a playground

To: Legoland
From: tim.fredriksson@gmail.com

recently our family visited Legoland. However, we were very disapointed.
The entire concept seemed only to focus on fun, play and beauty. As a parent my ambition is that my children will learn new things about the world. Legoland did not teach my children a single new thing.
You have sentimental miniatures of Copenhagen and famous buildings from the West. But where is the White man's brutal conquest of Africa, Agent Orange, or the threats from Global Warming? No where.
To whom should I send our tickets to get a refund?

Best regards,
Tim Fredriksson

Dear Tim Fredriksson,

Thank you for your e-mail of 29 June 2010. We are sorry that you were disappointed with your visit to LEGOLAND.

In LEGOLAND we focus on giving the whole family a good day in the park – full of imagination, creativity and fun. We do not strive to base the experiences on facts and history, but leave this to museums and other similar attractions.

Miniland is the heart of LEGOLAND. Here, you can see the world in miniature and enjoy famous buildings, capital cities, villages and exciting areas, built of 20 million LEGO bricks. Most of our guests score this area very high, when they give us their opinion of their visit, but we are of course sorry that you did not find it interesting.

Once more thank you for your comments.

Best regards,


The right horse for a Pampa ride?

To: Hidden Trails
From: tim.fredriksson@gmail.com

Soon I will fulfil my lifedream to go to Argentina and discover the Pampas from horseback. However, my personal horsecoach in Sweden has told me it is of uttermost importance that I use the right horses. Thus, he has analyzed my riding profile and my horoscope. He found out that I should preferable ride an Aquarius. A Libra or a Taurus would also work, but is not optimal. Horses belongning to other Signs are not acceptable, and if I got a Scorpio horse my life could be in danger. 
So, for your tour Estancia Pampas El Silencio - do you have any Aquarius horses available? Is it possible reserve these in advance?
Best regards,

Tim Fredriksson

New Years Eve in Berlin

my name is Tim Fredriksson and I am from Sweden. This December me and my family will go to Berlin. We will celebrate New Years Eve abroad for the first time. We have heard that Brandenburger Tor is the place to be, but we have also heard that it is crowded. 

Therefore I would like to reserve space for two adults and two children at Brandenburger Tor during December 31th between 23.30-00:30. Or do you think we need to stay until 01.00? When does the fireworks end?    

Best regards,

Hi over there,
I am Tim Fredriksson from Sweden. Me and my family are planing a trip to New Zeeland and of course we want to visit the beautiful nationalpark of Mount Cook.
One of our main goals with our trip to New Zeeland is to a find a place where we can bury the remains of our beloved dog (a charming border collie named Wilsson). In his 12 year long life WIlsson really loved the nature and we know that he will find peace in a really scenic place. So, do you have any specific spots around Mount Cook you recomemend for this purpose?

A great thanks in advance,
Tim Fredriksson with family

PS. If it will cost extra to bury a Wilsson we will gladly pay for this, but it would be great then if you could borrow us a shovel.

Dear Tim Fredriksson,

I am sorry to hear about the death of your family dog, Wilsson.  It is always nice to be able to help out in times of sadness such as this - and we would love to be able to help – but, unfortunately, it is not possible to bury the remains of animals in the Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park.  Sorry about that.  

Kind regards,

Throwing a ring into an active volcano - II

To: Icelandic Tourist Board 
From: tim.fredriksson@gmail.com

My name is Tim Fredriksson and I'm from Sweden. Soon me and my wife (hopefully) will visit Iceland.
During this trip we want to visit a volcano for a certain reason. We need to get rid off my wife's wedding ring from her first marriage. This is very symbolic for us, and I feel that we cannot move on with our relationship before the ring is destroyed. Thus, we want to visit a volcano and threw the ring in to the crater. 
Which active volcanos are easily accessible from Reykjavik? Which ones do you recommend for this purpose?

Thanks in advance,

Tim Fredriksson

PS. If tourists are not allowed all the way to an active crater we are willing to pay for a guide/ranger throwing away the ring into the volcano.

Greetings from Iceland,

As you might have heard there is an eruption going on in Iceland in Eyjafjallajökull glacier.  It is however strictly forbidden to go anywhere near the crater, it does not matter weather you are a tourist or a guide/ranger.  It is much too dangerous and also it is much to hot for anyone to go anywhere near.  This is in fact the case for any eruption, anywhere in the world, it is much to hot to go anywhere near so it would be impossible for anyone to go near enough to be able to throw anything into the crater.    The best thing for you would be to go to a jewler and sell him the ring and ask him to melt it, that would destroy it.   I do not want to be rude or incosiderate but the idea you propse sounds too much like something from the Lord of the Rings tale to work in reality.

All the best from Iceland,
