It’s been almost 3 weeks of living in Copenhagen and I feel like I’m slowly becoming more and more adjusted. My first session class is coming to a close, and I feel like I’ve really accomplished a lot in the short amount of time I’ve been here. I’m super excited for the next two sessions in Copenhagen and I’m extremely grateful that I will be spending more time in the city that is becoming my second home.
I’ve packed the last three weeks with lots of activities, and while I’ve made a lot of memories because of it, it also helped me learn to appreciate my alone time. One thing I really appreciate about the culture here is the emphasis on work-life balance. At school in Boston, I rarely get to just experience life and meet new people because most of my time is spent studying. Here, I feel like I’ve established a daily routine that I hope will manifest itself in my life back at school in the U.S.:
- 9:00-12:00 Class
- 12:00-13:00 Lunch with friends from class
- 13:00-15:00 Class
- 15:00- 17:00 Adventure around the city w friends (museums, restaurants, gardens etc.)
- 17:00-21:00 Make dinner, do homework, rest
- 21:00 Explore the nightlife

I am so excited to be staying in Copenhagen for both sessions 2 and 3. Initially, I wondered if I may have had a better experience if I traveled to Stockholm for one of the other sessions. After 3 weeks here, I can safely say that I’m glad I chose to stay in Copenhagen for all 3 sessions. I feel like I’m finally starting to assimilate into the culture here and I’m excited to expand on that in the upcoming weeks. My next two classes: Prostitution and the Sex Trade & Arctic Ecology both involve week-long study tours out of the country. I think it will be super helpful to have my home base established in Copenhagen as I take these trips and engage in other summer travel. Bring on the next two!
