rita

belated tv revelation: rita. this danish dramedy has been my latest obsession. the sound of danish brings back memories of living in copenhagen and hits me to the core. the character of rita madsen, who is an amazing teacher to her students and less than amiable with her adult peers, is a compelling, strong female character. netflix was hip to ms. madsen and helped to fund the third season, which already aired in denmark. mille dinesen plays rita with sharp wit that masks an emotionally bottled up woman. funnily, i recently saw dinesen in the movie copenhagen, where she played the lead's mother. i've been travelling down a trip down memory lane since getting access to netflix again. so friends, selv tak!

dreams come true trip


i can't believe how long i'v dreamed of visiting prince edward island, where the anne of green gables series is based. i grew up watching the films on pbs and only recently picked-up the books. it was rough getting there. i missed my connecting flight to charlottetown, but befriend a kindred spirit in shelby in route. we made the rest of the trek by car via moncton. i've seriously been to more places in canada this trip than in my entire life.  this includes unexpected overnights in montreal and toronto. it was all worth it to fulfill a childhood dream.


"kindred spirits are not so scarce as i use to think. it's splendid to find out that there are so many of them in the world." - anne shirley

shelby & i missed our ✈️to charlottetown, so we re-routed together via moncton and drove the rest of the way.
