Back in the USA

Now that I am back home I am feeling a little bit of everything! I was so excited to see my friends and family when I got back, but I already miss SA so much. I left a little piece of my heart there.

I was thankful to be back home and happy to see everyone, but I honestly could have stayed there a little longer! It had finally felt like I had...

Since I last updated I have...

Discovering Denmark: First Impressions and Actuality

My journey to Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark, began back in August and included almost missing my flight, delays, and lost luggage. BUT after being here for two and a half months I am happy to say that my situation is now much more comfortable. Before arriving I had a typical idea of Denmark– tall blondes, “the happiest country in the world”, “the least corrupt country in the world”, Lego,...
