There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about Copenhagen at least once. During the 2008-2009 academic year, I studied abroad there at the Royal School of Library and Information Science. It was my first extended time away from home, and it was there that I fell in love with the urban lifestyle. That’s also how I got comfortable navigating cities and being on my own. When I first arrived in Denmark, I didn’t want to go anywhere by myself. But over time, I went from being too scared to take a bus or metro by myself to meet my classmates somewhere … to doing all of those things alone, most of the time, and loving it.
I miss my classmates; we were sort of like a little family during our time there. Two of those classmates became lifelong friends. Thankfully we have Facebook as a way to keep in touch!
Here are a few pictures I took in April 2009. This was part of the scene of my daily life, 5 years ago today!
