A few friends from study abroad started up our old FaceBook message chain last night as I was falling asleep. Randomly my roomie woke me up today by playing Ben Howard's "Old Pine." I knew it was going to be one of those days; the 'I miss study abroad, & no one understands days.'
When I visited Italy with my Dad over Christmas I did one of those double-deck bus tours. It was awesome and it was a totally different perspective of Rome. I fell deeply, madly, and passionately in love with Rome that day & all I want to do is go back. It was hands down, the most beautiful place I've ever seen.
With my iPod on, playing Mumford&Sons, I took as many videos as possible to remember what it felt like that day. I made my Dad stay on with me for 2 whole tours. Love ya Pops!
When I came home for the last couple days left in Copenhagen, I spent those 3 days wondering about the city. My last day was absolutely gorgeous and I decided to walk around shooting videos all day. While they are pretty shaky, it's still a pretty accurate depiction of my every day in Denmark. I put it to "Old Pine" and it fit perfectly.
As hard as it was to be alone 4,000 miles away for 5 months, it was the best experience I've ever had.
Check out my video of Copenhagen below.
If you ever get the chance to go to Scandinavia, go. It is the most magical little place.
Has anyone else studied abroad or spent a significant amount of time abroad?
Jeg elsker dig, Kobenhavn!
