I just thought I’d give an update on a few things real quick:
Don’t hold me to this, but I’d like to start writing on this blog a lot more. Perhaps an entry every Sunday? Who knows, I’m horrible at sticking to a planned schedule.
New Year’s Eve was a lot of fun. I went to a dinner party and listened to the Danish Queen deliver her New Years address. Afterwards, I went to a party with my friends. There are a few traditions in Denmark that are different to North America. For instance, instead of watching NYE live from Times Square, many people tune into an old film (the name of the film escapes me) from the 1940s’ until the clock strikes 12. Additionally when midnight comes people stand up on their chairs and leap down to “jump into the new year”
A few things: In a few weeks I’ll be heading back to Copenhagen for the day to meet with one of my friends from back home. They just happened to be in Denmark while traveling abroad so I’ll be visiting them for the day. Not only will it be nice to see them after so long, but it’ll also be amazing to go back to Copenhagen. As small as Denmark is, it’s still a long way to Copenhagen if you don’t own a car. Shortly after my trip to Copenhagen, I’ll be off into continental Europe again. This time I’m heading to Austria! I have a week-long ski trip booked in the Austrian Alps (I’ll be sure to write about that when I return in Mid February. Aside from that, not much else is new. Winter is in full swing where I live. However, “full swing winter” in Denmark means about an inch of snow and -2° if the winds are blowing from Russia. Otherwise, January in Denmark is remarkable Green – As shown below –
I’m incredibly excited for the coming weeks, and if anything notable happens before I go to Austria I’ll make a real attempt to update this blog on a more regular basis! Until then, vi ses
