“To be, or not to be”

We decided to take a visit to the wonderful district of Helsingør in the greater Copenhagen area. Helsingør is home to the very old and very famous Kronborg Castle.  Kronborg Castle served as the inspiration for the setting of Elsinore in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.  Hamlet is certainly one of my favorite Shakespearean plays, one that we often discussed outside of class when we were reading it in high school.  The castle was...

Until Next Time…. (A summary of my study abroad experience)

This is one of my favorite restaurants and I had been craving it since I arrived in Spain because they had one and I...
