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
https://www.flickr.com/photos/139516717@N04/39859566315/in/dateposted-public/ The past two weeks we have had some wild weather here in Copenhagen. I had the impression that spring was coming, when in fact it has been quite the opposite. There has been the most snow in the past week and half that there has been since I came to Copenhagen! There was ice … Continue reading I thought Spring had Sprung??
Yes, the song by George Ezra was stuck in my head for the entire trip, yes, my friend and I walked around the city humming it constantly, and yes, our third friend wanted to kill us. All musical differences aside, we were in Budapest! The city made up of Buda, Pest, a strangely-located ferris wheel, … Continue reading How many miles to Budapest?

It seems to be since I have been in Copenhagen that I have been eating far more sugar than I have in the United States. Could it be because the sweets are just so good here? In fact, did you know that Danish children eat the most candy … Continue reading Sweets in the Spring
https://www.flickr.com/photos/139516717@N04/40225503732/in/dateposted-public/ I am back with another post, but this week I will be talking about exorbitantly high priced (but tasty food) from Copenhagen. Studying abroad I was definitely not prepared for food to be as expensive as it is in Denmark .The main reason for this is because there is 25% percent tax on all … Continue reading City Shananigans

I wonder how they keep the gates so gold?* Greetings on this lovely morning friends! As a write this post I am laying in my warm bed cuddled up after a weeklong adventure through a new land.

The trees seemed alive because the branches are so gnarly.* A trip to Denmark would not be complete without experiencing the cool, dark weather from an eerie forested park. The park is called Dyrehave (Dyre meaning deer), and is well known around the world for its miraculously … Continue reading A Walk in the Woods (of Denmark)
I've been living in Copenhagen for just over a week now, but already, it feels like home. The cobblestone streets, so different from the ones I grew up on, are familiar to me now. The incredibly dynamic mix of old and new buildings makes perfect sense to me, and I already have favorite spots to … Continue reading All the small things…
