It’s still in Australia with Donald. He was having some issues getting it shipped, but hopefully, the issues have been resolved and it will soon be on it’s way to Brazil.

At first I thought, is there two Donalds, one in Denmark and one in Australia? Then I realized the one Donald is on a trip...

However this morning I was just marvelling at the coincidence (and I don't believe in them) that yesterday I was looking at Donald's pics and reading his posts, and today on a Canadian morning talk show, (Marilyn Dennis, and hey I am on holidays) they had the guy who wrote "the little Book of Hygge" on the show,  and a designer touring Copenhagen showing Scandinavian design elements of certain places.  So beautiful.

& an interesting story about how Danes have the highest use of candles (or maybe the second-highest) in the world!  and how one family replaced their dining room light with a candle chandelier....kind of GoT'ish huh.

We are all anxiously awaiting more news from the traveler. Let us know the status whenever you can Donald.

Careful! Fragile stickers usually mean that baggage handlers have to throw the package to a height equivalent if the pole vault bar before letting it hit the concrete

It should be on its way to Brazil. I’m waiting on confirmation from @Donald that it has been shipped. @Augusto has been notified and is expecting it soon.

@Helvetica Gammeldansk is a bitter that is about 80 proof alcohol, I believe. My two Danish uncles would drink a shot of It in their orange juice with breakfast. I think this is why they are so healthy and in their 80's. 

I can't find it here in my liquor stores lately. Will have to visit Denmark again to bring some back. 

I am sure it will improve my playing 😊.

I grew a liking to it when I lived in Sweden.

Maybe off topic though. LOL

Do we know if the Traveler made it safely to its new destination in Brazil? 

Looking forward to hearing more about its adventures 🙂

It was shipped on Jan. 16. I’ve sent a message to @augustoad to let me know when it arrives, but I haven’t heard back from him yet. Unfortunately, Donald didn’t get a tracking number when he sent it.

Oh no, I hope it's sitting safely in customs or something, and we'll hear something soon 🙂

How Exciting for Augustoad.  I have him on an old Skype account.  I will have to ask him If I get a chance. 🙂

In the future we must require that the shipper gets a tracking number.

@BillyG Whatever image or gif or whatever you posted above wouldn't load for me, but rest assured that I most likely agree with you, haha.

@damfino - Mandy - there was no image, no GIF, i.e, I actually posted "nothing" --- just an empty post....  yeah - well - you what I mean - we had this before, it's just not fair on other members....   The rules are there.   Simple....

@BillyG Ah, ok, haha. My computer is slow today and the loading icon kept spinning at the top of the page, so I thought something wouldn't load, must have just been the chatroom hanging up the page, haha. 

Yep, I agree with you. Really hoping the fiddle gets to its destination safely. My heart sank a little when I read that it's just kind of out there.

Just FYI, I did ask him to get a tracking number several times. I also informed him in advance where he would be shipping it just to make sure there wouldn’t be any surprise shipping fees when the time came.
