Maybe it’s because I spent a week in warm Italy, maybe it’s because the season really is changing, but I’ve noticed a significant change in the weather this past week here in Copenhagen. As it goes with a fall-to-winter season change in any climate, the chill tends to creep up on you until before youContinue reading “Turning winter gloom into Christmas joy”
Everyone has always told me studying abroad forces you to get to know yourself, to get comfortable being alone. I knew this was going to be true in some capacity, but truly, I thought I knew myself pretty well. I’ve always thought and told people I love to be alone- I love going out toContinue reading “Finding community in a new world – a mid-semester reflection”
We just finished up travel week for my core course class, Prostitution and the Sex Trade in Europe, where we spent six days together in Amsterdam learning first hand about pretty much any form of sex work you can think of. From a live sex show, to exploring the infamous red light district, to meetingContinue reading “Sex, Burlesque & Red Lights”
No matter how hard we try to educate ourselves, view things from a different perspective, and challenge what we’ve been taught our whole lives, it’s difficult to not stereotype- especially with something as taboo as sex work. I’ve always considered myself someone who has a relatively open mind, and yet when my professor told usContinue reading “The industry of secrets”
We’re officially halfway done with our semester here in Copenhagen- and along with it come midterm papers and tests, and a week long break from classes last week that many DIS students used as their travel week. I took the week to travel Spain with a girl from my floor and had a wonderful, relaxingContinue reading “A week in Spain and a relaxing weekend back home in Copenhagen”
I can’t think of any opening line to accurately describe how amazing this past weekend was. When I booked my ticket for this trip, the price was relatively cheap. I had plans to maybe go with some friends, but was okay going alone if they decided they didn’t end up wanting to go. I bookedContinue reading “Weekend in Paris!”
I’m just over a month into my semester here in Denmark, and I have certainly been keeping busy! Aarhus A few weeks ago, we had core course week, where we spent the week studying, traveling and bonding with our core course classes at DIS. My core class is titled Prostitution and the Sex Trade inContinue reading “Aarhus, Møns Klint, and Copenhagen moments”
Before my arrival to Denmark, it really felt like all I did was read every single nook and cranny of the DIS Copenhagen page, research what to bring, and plan what my life was going to be like. Truthfully? That was almost completely all a waste of time. I still felt clueless upon arrival, andContinue reading “One month in: things I’ve learned & things I wish I’d known sooner”
I’ve never been to Europe before, so one thing I knew I wanted to budget while saving up for this semester was some travel to as many places as I could get to. Due to my less than outstanding saving skills and the realization that I’m never going to make it everywhere I want toContinue reading “Big fun in London!”
In the spirit of taking in as much of this unusual sunshine as possible here in Scandanavia, some friends invited me on a quick day trip to Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö. The trip required a quick thirty-ish minute train ride from the city center of Copenhagen, but for $30, it was a cheap, funContinue reading “A “perfect” day trip to Malmö”
