Travel Fantasy: Baltic Sea (tiny) Island

Thursday, February 17, 2011


Brilliant! Antti Laitinen is a Finnish artisit who embarked on a project of creating his own tiny island in the middle of the Baltic Sea. The whole process took him three month. It consisted of individually filling each of the 200 bags with sand and dragging them to the same spot in the sea (despite the harsh waves or bad weather conditions) until the island started to appear over the water. Aww...don't we all dream of a little spot in the world that is only ours? Darlings, what do you think? xoxo

P.S:  More amazing places:)

(thanks Elizabeth)
