Paris is always a good idea, especially on spring…

I was in Paris last year, early spring time. Spending my favorite season in the most well loved city of most tourists was splendid. Not to mention, it was an all expense paid trip.

What Does The Fox Say?

What does the fox say? Rev at Hovedoya Oslo

Does the line ring a bell? It was the famous line from the song The Fox. The electronic novelty song and viral video by Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis.

beach at Hovedoya, Oslo NorwayYesterday, I explored by myself one of the island of Oslo fjord: Hovedøya and had a unique encounter with the wild fox. The fox is said to be living in the island and scares some tourists, but it has been observed to be stealing food from the visitors.

It was my first time to see a fox in real life and I was amused on how friendly it is. I never expected it will be so close to human and he doesn’t look so wild for me. Well this trip made me realize to never stop exploring and nature has always its own way of surprising you.

So what does the fox says?

I dont know either. Lets just listen to Ylvis and sing along with this fun and silly song.
