My Face

This is my face when I FINALLY got the email from my host family tonight! I will be living in Albertslund, Denmark, which is about 25 minutes away from Copenhagen. My host parents are Linda and Bjarne. She is a hairdresser and he works for a company dealing with fruits and veggies. They have two children, who I think are not living at home anymore. They also have a dog, Molly, who should be having puppies by the time I get there! Needless to say this just makes me even more excited to head over there for my semester abroad!


Denmark: The Official Website of Denmark

Funny what you can find on the web with a simple search. There is so much information on this site I could sit for hours and look through all this information! I have a lot of friends who are also going abroad and on of them, Liesje, and I are making our own sort of wish lists. We are writing down the things we hope to get done or things we hope to see while we are abroad. I’m not sure that we will get to do or see everything on our lists, but I hope we will get to make a very big dent in our lists!


“Writing and travel broaden your ass if not your mind and I like to write standing up.”
Ernest Hemingway

Well, if this isn’t the way to start a blog, I don’t know what is. I leave in 16 days and I have no idea what I’m packing. I figure it will come to me eventually. I don’t know what I will find when I go on my travels. I don’t think I’ll suddenly become philosophic or anything like that but I hope that I will become more aware of the world around me and the people I come into contact with. I’m sure I’ll screw up a few times and that’s cool. No harm, no foul. In the end, I want to have fun and I want to learn more about people as well as myself.
