It is insane to think that I am already halfway through my time in Copenhagen. I have swam, gone to museums, ate too much food, met stellar people, and have had so many other unforgettable experiences. As I am beginning to feel my remaining four weeks here tick by, I think it would be fun to reflect on a few highlights.
I am by no means a big sports person, but watching the world cup here has been amazing for the following reasons:
- Denmark qualified, which is kind of a big deal- especially when considering that the U.S. did not.
- It is amazing to head to pubs and see people getting into sports, it is such a huge aspect of European culture and it is fun to join in on the fun.
- It is a wonderful stalling tactic for holding off homework.
I cannot emphasize how amazing my Study Tour was. Not only did I get to visit another country, I also got to experience a different culture and build stronger relationships with classmates. My study tour was an exhausting, busy, and a bit chaotic time – yet I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Finally, one thing that I am thankful for is that, for the summer, I live in Europe. This means that traveling in between countries is easy and semi-cheap, I have all of Scandinavia and Europe to travel between. It is such an amazing opportunity to study, travel, and explore all at once!
Overall, I have had an amazing time in Copenhagen/Europe so far and I can’t wait to see where this last month takes me!
