Travel – Holidays = Arctic Blast Delays

I made plans for a trip South Carolina to visit my friend and her family over the holidays. Yes, I made it out of Minneapolis, MN even as the snow started on Wednesday 12/21/22. If you wondering how that was possible, Minneapolis is the top airport in a snow situation. That’s from my friend who’s is in the know about flying, air travel and all things to do with aviation.

I know the next day that people were stuck there. 😏 after the whole country was socked in as we say… hmmm…interesting expression.

After an hour and A half waiting in the plane on the tarmac, the plane was in line for de-icing. I had the good fortune to be sitting next to a student from Denmark, who is studying at the University of Minnesota.

Talking with him was a fun way to pass the time. I mentioned a Danish series that I watch on PBS. It is called “Seaside Hotel”. The cast of characters are an array of people from Danish Society in the years right before World War II. The series has 8 seasons. The student liked the series and had watched it all with his parents!

This series has so many layers of humor, drama and social commentary. I find it engaging and really delightful. The premise is a small group of people who meet every summer at the charming hotel by the Danish coast and includes the characters who run and work in the hotel. The characters stories intertwine in unexpected scenarios.

Some many years ago I visited the town of Helsingor Denmark, which as it turned out, to be Elsinore of Shakespeare’s play “Hamlet”. The town has a very big castle you can visit.

Aha! A light went off after my photo was taken next to a large poster that advertised the play “Hamlet”

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.

Have a pleasant safe holiday wherever you may be.
