We took a hydrofoil from Helsinki to Tallinn, Estonia this past Sunday. Tallinn's old town was beautiful and well worth a visit. We have also encountered nothing but beautiful weather on this trip! Sorry about the snow, Calgary... it better be spring when I get back home!

I know it is still technically Monday, but it is 11pm Monday night here in Helsinki, so I might as well post this now! Here is a selection of the letters and numbers found in the city over the past couple days.

Wild Things to come

Added on by .

An adaptation of Maurice Sendak's beloved children's story, 'Where The Wild Things Are' is coming to the silver screen next fall.

Directed by Spike Jonze, written by Jonze and Dave Eggers, starring Catherine Keener and Mark Ruffalo, and with Arcade Fire fueling the soundtrack and a musical score by composer Carter Berwell and Karen O (Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs), it has the markings of one very fine family-friendly film.

Truffaut's Wild Child

Added on by .

 The Calgary Cinematheque is hosting a screening of Francois Truffaut's 'The Wild Child' (1970) tonight at the Plaza Theatre, 7pm.  French New Waver Truffaut both directs and acts in the film, playing the part of an 18th century French country scientist who endeavors to civilize a feral young boy found in a forrest. 

The Cinematheque group feature excellent introductions and q & a sessions contextualizing screenings, and this time out they have scored a newly restored 35 mm print of the film so it promises to be a rare moviegoing event.

To watch a trailer for the film, click here.

I love the grainy look of the film poster featured below. Sadly, my hair is looking a lot like the wild child's. Image found here.

Suitcase: Bergen

Added on by Janine Vangool.


We arrived in Bergen in the very early morning. After finding a hotel, we went on a ferry tour of the coast. (Following a night on the train and then some choppy water, I had a small bit of seasickness; for the rest of the day, it felt like the earth was rolling.)

Bergen is absolutely beautiful and we're glad that we had two nights here.

Suitcase: Oslo and night train to Bergen

We had a sleeper car for the overnight journey through the winding fjords from Oslo to Bergen.
