copenhagen, part three.
On my third day in Copenhagen, I started off with a short walk to the Nyhavn area, which is filled with lots of small boutiques and restaurants. It kind of reminded me of Amsterdam and the canals in the Jordaan area. It’s a really beautiful area and I’m glad that the weather was pretty decent, no rain to soak me this morning. Shortly afterwards, I took the train up north to...
copenhagen, part two.
I had planned to visit all of the major sights and things that I wanted to do in Copenhagen on my second day there. A packed schedule, indeed. After breakfast at the hostel, off I went to walk to see the Little Mermaid statue. It was only a 20-minute walk but boy, did it feel like I walked for ages no thanks to the pouring rain and crazy wind. An umbrella was useless in that weather, so I just...

After sleeping a grand total of 3 hours and leaving my hostel in Stockholm at an ungodly hour, I headed to the airport, ready to board my flight to Copenhagen. Because I had purchased a few things in Stockholm, I was a little worried that my carry-on would go over the weight limit. So, I piled on the clothing (i.e. white tank, Weekday knit, Canada Goose parka, Cheap Monday Jacket) and...

This final Stockholm post is continuing where the previous post left off. I just thought that it would be better to do a separate post so it wouldn’t be as overwhelming. After a full morning and afternoon of sightseeing and walking, Amy and I returned to our hostel to give our tired feet a break. I rested up and researched how to get to Debaser Slussen, as I was going to be seeing Real...

Alright, part three! Hope you aren’t sick of all these pictures yet. Since a lot of Gamla Stan had been blocked off due to the Nazi protest, I went back with Amy, an Aussie from my hostel. We ventured into the Old Town area and bought ourselves some Swedish toffee with nuts in it. We also visited the Royal Palace, which I thought was a little on the ugly side. Sorry, Swedes. It just...
stockholm, part two.
My first full day in Stockholm started off with me getting up super early to get as much done while it was still light out. Like the UK, it gets dark around 3PM in Stockholm, so you must enjoy daylight while you can. First on my list of things to see and do was the Moderna Museet on the Skeppsholmen island. I could have walked there if I really wanted too, but I took a bus instead. Right...

Last week, after handing in my paper and reading response portfolio, I finally got a break from school. Classes finally ended and to celebrate, off I went to the land of gorgeous Scandinavian men and amazing Scandinavian fashion. After a grand total of three hours of sleep, I got on a train to Manchester Airport at the ungodly hour of six in the morning. Not entirely sure what I was...
mmmeggit asked: I am so happy I've just found your blog! I'm coming to Leeds next winter semester for study abroad from Canada and all your pictures have just made me so much more excited! What program are you in?!
I’ve been crazy busy with schoolwork for the past while so I didn’t have a chance to post this until today. Today, I had a 3000-word paper due, as well as a reading response portfolio. I’m so relieved that those two assignments are done! I’ve only got one final research essay due in January and a couple of exams for my film history class. A little bit before the...
