I said one last goodbye to my family before getting on line at security. “See you in…May,” I said. The words sounded harsh coming out of my mouth. May? I thought. Four months? The longest and farthest I had ever been away from home was when I went to South Africa, and that was only […]

Berlin on a College Student’s Budget

I visited Berlin on an extreme budget. There’s so much to see, so much I want to do and eat, I thought on the plane ride down to Berlin from Copenhagen. How can I pull this off? I managed to spend around $195 during the 60 hours that I was there. I spent the most […]

Underwhelmed in the City of Light

I stared at the painting, which was a lot smaller than I had expected. I tried to appreciate it, really tried, it’s famous, right? So I should be filled with euphoria as I stand against this crowd of tourists, each one pushing me to try and get a better view of the painting with eyes […]

When Statues Come to Life

The snow fell softly, as if it were too afraid of breaking the fallen snow beneath it. I sat in this winter wonderland, with no one in sight. I was in the Botanical Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark, admiring the beauty of the Copenhagen winter (while trying not to freeze). The greenhouse in the garden dates […]

What and Where to Eat in Amsterdam

I didn’t have a list of food in mind to try when I went to Amsterdam (except the stroopwafel, of course). All the food I had was delicious. I’ve compiled a list of what I did eat, and highly recommend anyone going to Amsterdam to try these.  1. Stroopwafel Two thin, doughy (flour, eggs, milk, etc) wafers, […]

How to Spend a Day in Lund, Sweden

I spent approximately 5 hours in Lund, Sweden, and it was the perfect amount of time (of course I could have stayed longer, but we were just stopping by). I took the train from Copenhagen, and in less than an hour, we had arrived in Lund. It is one of the oldest cities in Sweden, […]
