After the greatest four months of my life, I'm back in Gainesville, and the adjustment is hard for me at best. I'm struggling a lot more than I thought I would- there was nothing to prepare me for all of these negative emotions. Having traveled overseas before my semester abroad, the worst part of readjusting … Continue reading all good things end
Hey there gators! When you think of Louisiana you are probably imagining Cajun food, Mardi Gras, and New Orleans. That is not what I am talking about though, I am picturing nice weather in Copenhagen, art, and fresh flowers all around. The temperatures have hit the 70s and 80s and it doesn’t get dark until … Continue reading I took a trip to Louisiana, the one in Denmark
Well, it turns out that finals week exists abroad, and it's just as stressful in Europe as it is in the States. I wrote a post about combatting my stress on my personal blog, you can find it here! https://www.instagram.com/p/Bhup7-1HMLr/?taken-by=littlemanes I've been doing so much traveling recently, it's hard to get back in the groove … Continue reading (actually studying) abroad
https://www.flickr.com/photos/139516717@N04/41128773484/in/dateposted-public/ Considering Earth Day was last week, I felt this post was appropriate. With this new spring weather there are not only new smells in the air, but also new experiences to had. Since last year I had known about an organisation called Vild Mad (‘Wild Food’), which basically helps to introduce people to Danish … Continue reading Did Someone Say Danish Foraging?
My study abroad journey is quickly coming to a close, and instead of freaking out, I find myself retreating into self-reflection. (I mean, I'm also totally freaking out, but I now I also have some deep thoughts to accompany me.) I keep thinking about what comes next. I'll return home and friends and family and … Continue reading moments of moments
This past weekend, I took a short trip to Sweden to escape the realities of school and life. Sweden truly is a magical place that is taken over by countryside and farms. It is just so amazing that from Copenhagen it is possible to be in another country in less than one hour by train. … Continue reading Sweden… Is it the Cheaper, More Beautiful Denmark?
Studying abroad and being able to see exactly how big the world can be has a way of making you feel so small. I love it. It has a way of reminding you that in this vast, unimaginably huge universe, you still have a place in it. Your actions are meaningless to most of the … Continue reading (in)significant
It is starting to feel like spring now in Copenhagen… like really feeling like Spring. Tomrrow according to the forcast it is suppose to be 50 degrees for the first time this year. As the weather warms up, there are more people outside enjoying their terrace and setting up patio furniture for the new year. … Continue reading Hygge or not?
Last semester, I thought 4 months sounded like a long time. What a joke! My program is already halfway gone, and I can't believe that I'm leaving this beautiful country in just 2 months. Even worse- I only have 3 weekends left in Copenhagen itself. It's hard to comprehend, and I don't know where the … Continue reading Woah, we’re halfway there?
Copenhagen is nearly pristine, I'd say. It's orderly and clean (save for the cigarette butts, of course), the people are dressed impeccably everywhere you look, and the city just makes sense. Bucharest is like Copenhagen, except completely different in every way. They're both cities. In Europe. That's about where the similarities end! Bucharest, the capital … Continue reading Romaniadventures
