Hello friends! If you want to hear a little more about what we’ve been up to in Elsinore, tune into CBC Radio’s ‘As It Happens’ tonight! I’ll be talking a little bit about the Airbnb contest and the castle, and also probably trying to articulate why I love Shakespeare so much. In the meantime, here’s a picture of me and Margaret with our friend Horatio on a guided tour of Kronborg:
A little while ago a friend posted a link on my Facebook wall for a contest to stay the night of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death at Kronborg Castle–the castle most of us know as ‘Elsinore.’ And in a very strange twist of fate… I actually won. (Trust me, I’m as surprised as you are.) We kept it a secret for a while so we could sort out the particulars, but I’m Denmark-bound on the 21st! If you want, you can read more about it here.
