The beautiful life I have been given

Godaften, It has been a long time since I have written a post informing you of my latest adventures in the great country of Denmark. As always, there have been too many memories to share, but below are a few of the most notable. Even as I come to the end of my exchange, the… Read more »

Another town, another train

Godaften, As I awoke, not even the sun had started to rise, the wind blowing hard and strong. I didn’t know what to think as I rode my bike to the station, it was as if my mind was numb from the cold. Although it was early, I was wide awake, for the people I… Read more »

The third chapter; once upon a wishing bracelet

Godaften, It has been 8 months since I boarded the fateful flight which would bring me to a strange place called Denmark far, far away from my comfortable yet rather boring life in Sydney. As I settle in with my third host family, now more than ever I can begin to realise the changes within… Read more »

The winds of change are upon us

Godaften, As I write today, I face a startling reality; my time in Denmark is nearing its end. I have been pushing this thought from my mind for as long as I can, ignoring the plane ticket that will take me back to a place I once called home. However,  it has reached the point… Read more »

It is hard to imagine where one will end up

Godaften, Eurotour was the best three weeks of my exchange so far, for sure. Obviously, I have enjoyed my time in Denmark so much, and there are memories I have made and shared here I will never forget, however, Eurotour was a once in a life time experience that I am very thankful to have… Read more »

The second chapter; of beginnings and ends

Godaften, Exchange is a very strange emotional experience. Even though I may not be an emotional person, I have still felt the ever-changing way my mind processes events and the emotional toll it holds over me. I came to this realisation about two weeks ago, when the daunting reality that I would have to change… Read more »

A smile across sunburnt cheeks

Godaften, Spring has arrived at last, with the sun shining over Copenhagen in all its glory. The warm weather is a welcome change, however it is strange to think 13 degrees is warm, especially since I grew up in Australia. Spring could not have come at a better time. Påske (Easter) in Denmark is full… Read more »

Life like the falling snow

Godaften, As it would seem, yesterday marked two months after my arrival in Denmark. Time is no longer a concept here, whilst a day may be long, these past two months have gone by so fast, and yet I feel as though I have been living in Denmark a lifetime. It is spring time now,… Read more »

The normalities of life on exchange

Godaften, In a couple of days time, on the 20th of February at 6:00 am, I will have been living in Denmark for exactly one month, and what a month it has been. The adrenaline has stopped kicking in every time I get on a train (or more so run to the station) and the… Read more »

Triumphs and challenges; the opening chapter

Godaften, Not every teenager can say they have left home to live on the other side of the world for a year, however I, among the 31 other ‘winter team’ exchange students in Denmark, can. I knew it would not be easy, there would be many challenges to face, but it has not been as… Read more »
