So my last week in Copenhagen could not have been more perfect. The sun was out and so were the bikers (including me!). Yes it is true, I took to the streets on my trustworthy yellow bike, wary of uphill battles and fearless Danish bikers. It takes about 40 minutes to ride into the city … More last days… Danish spring
My second to last weekend in Denmark… how did it come to this? Well, it was much better than the previous weekend when I opted out of the Bornholm biking trip to write 4 gloriously pointless papers. Here’s to two full days staring at my computer screen and typing endless streams of words onto slowly … More Breaking for Bakken and BBQ
Last Friday night I went to Tivoli with the Jeppesen’s and Co. consisting of Lotte, Michael, Bella, Nadja, and the pseudo-children including, me, Christian, Morten, and the little boy next door. Tivoli is located in the center of Copenhagen and is an awesome mix of a fair and Disney World. Walt Disney was actually inspired … More Lights of Tivoli
Last Saturday was an all day field study for Nordic Mythology class. It was long and exhausting but interesting. We saw sooo much stuff… the Roskilde Viking ship museum, a burial mound, Viking settlement remains, ship settings, and even the site where Beowulf’s hall might have stood. Thankfully it did not rain. After the trip, … More Ships, Vikings, and High School Musicals… Oh my!

Today was bright, sunny, and wonderful. Too bad it’s only Tuesday and not next Saturday. Because Alexi will be here! Yay! But the sun makes everything better. And hopefully will make time pass faster too. My weekend was fun though, I attended two birthday parties with my family for some of their friends. I ate … More Sunshine
For the past two days, snow has steadily blanketed the city in a quiet white slumber. It’s the kind of snowfall that is calm and peaceful, definitely unlike the angry Nor’easters that attack Maine with forceful blizzards of stinging ice. The kind of snowfall you pray for in a country of freezing rain. After pulling … More It’s a hygge life
I have never seen so many sculptures in one place in my entire life. This museum might have to become a Sunday ritual. That and making friends with statues.
My life is dominated by inside spaces… claustrophobic classrooms, literally large libraries, and transient trains. Why go outside in the freezing rain or biting sunlight when I can jump from place to place? In a city, the outdoors is only a backdrop to what hidden gems lie inside closed doors and dirty window panes, beckoning … More Looking through the glass
