Long story short, the Mac ‘n Cheese was a hit. They loved it (despite the alarming amount of cheese– for… Continue reading what to cook for your Danish host family that wants to experience *real* American food
Sitting on my train, it just hit me that I have less than 3 weeks left of study abroad !?!. (I can’t figure out the punctuation to explain my feelings to this realization). It has thrown me into a bit of a crisis. Did I accomplish all that I wanted to? Did I see all… Continue reading 3 weeks left? end of semester crisis.

According… Continue reading Found Family Abroad: Why I love my homestay.

(Updated April 2022) Because almost half the semester has already passed (crazy!!!!), I have compiled a list of my recommended places to visit, eat at, wander at, and appreciate some Copenhagen-ness. This was actually a wonderful assignment I created for myself, as I have now realized I am seriously lacking in discovering CPH in some… Continue reading *Ultimate (!!!) Guide to Copenhagen for a Study-Abroad Student/20-something/Young Adult*
