Second Blog on Baltic Sea Cruise: Green Spaces and Public Art

In the “These are a few of my favorite things” category are Green Spaces and Public Art in cities. European cities, which have been at it a lot longer than American cities, get it right. Savannah, Georgia, gets it right. I especially like the surprising little gardens that seem to pop out of the cement in unexpected urban settings. As an avid walker, I love both open spaces and accessible outdoor art. In the past month, I have taken walks in Copenhagen (Denmark), Klaipeda (Lithuania), Helsinki (Finland), St. Petersburg (Russia) and Tallinn (Estonia).

Everybody kids me about the money I find when I am walking, but even better are the park benches, the fountains, the flowerbeds, and architectural surprises.

When nature and humans interact creatively and pleasurably, that is a good thing.
