Pamela Poncelin is shuffling behind the bakery counter, busily preparing her artisan donuts for online delivery orders and the people periodically entering the shop. Her hair is pulled up in a high ponytail with several loose pieces framing her kind face, and I am struck by how generously she offers her time to answer myContinue reading ““Dough Girls” Bakery Spotlight: Not Your Everyday Donut”
It’s no question that the pandemic has made it difficult to meet people and visit new places. You might ask, “Aren’t those the main objectives of studying abroad? What’s the point of traveling to another country if you can’t achieve these two things?” Well, I’ve found that there are safe ways to socialize and exploreContinue reading “Tips for Coping with COVID-19 While Studying Abroad”
I decided to make a trip up to Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark, during my week-long DIS Study Tour. With only one class to attend (remotely, due to the pandemic), it was wonderful to have the flexibility to travel to another city in Denmark for a couple of days. The perfect opportunity toContinue reading “Aarhus Adventures + DIS Study Tour!”
It was a trip several weeks in the making! The plan to make a day trip to Møns Klint was an exciting prospect, from the car ride to the picnic to the hike itself. Signe, Emmelie, and Caroline, our Danish flatmates, had the inspired idea to travel to the scenic overlook, and Nikki and IContinue reading “Day Trip to Møns Klint”
I am usually comfortable snapping photos of the things I find intriguing while exploring the city, but in Farum everything feels more intimate. I witness a fluffy black cat peering at me through the window of a house, a man preparing food in a kitchen visible to me from the street. These tidbits of lifeContinue reading “Field Study in Farum”
This is the blog post I would have wanted to read before studying abroad in Copenhagen had it existed before my departure! Living in a Kollegium (apartment-style living) is certainly an experience, and preparing my own food for every meal was something that I’d never had to do before since at home I live onContinue reading “5 Tips for Being Vegan in a Kollegium”
One of our flatmates recently decided to purchase a juicing machine––a thrifty investment that got a lot of use these last several days! The amount of produce that had to be acquired was enormous. To sustain all five of us for three days, we had to obtain our fruits and vegetables from a bulk storeContinue reading “My Flat Took on a 3-Day Juice Cleanse”
“The air is so fresh here!” exclaim our flatmates. We’ve just exited the train station, accompanied by three of our flatmates who generously offered to show us Dyrehaven, a famous deer park. A short train ride from Frederiksberg gets us here, to the beautiful forested park just north of Copenhagen. I imagine in the springContinue reading “An Outing to Dyrehaven”
Saturday was a great day for exploration! Nikki and I decided to visit and explore the commune of Freetown Christiania within the neighborhood of Christianshavn, and the surroundings that we took in were pretty striking. I’ve already written a blog post about our visit to Christiania, so check it out for a more in-depth descriptionContinue reading “A Food-Filled Weekend”
“Don’t buy anything there,” quips our flatmate, when we inform her we’re headed out to explore Christiania. Confused, I probe for clarification. “What do you mean we shouldn’t buy anything?” I query, prompting a chuckle from someone else. “Well, there’s a lot of weed there,” she informs us. “Buy a souvenir, but don’t bring anythingContinue reading “Freetown Christiania”
