One of the super cool things about being a student blogger this past semester is that I had prospective DIS students reach out to me over the course of the past four months to ask questions about the classes I was taking, where I was living, and how I was liking Copenhagen. As the Spring 2018 semester prepares to leave their homes for Denmark in the coming days (you have no idea how jealous I am of all of you!) I thought it would be helpful to recap some of the questions I got during the semester!
As a final post recapping the semester, I thought it would be fun to do a post with every Friday Five picture I posted over the last four months. My Friday Five posts were some of my favorites of the semester! Compiling them at the end of each week was a great way for me to reflect on the previous week—all the things I did, saw, ate, and accomplished. I wanted everyone following this blog to be able to see everything I was doing, seeing, eating, and accomplishing, rather than me just writing about it. I hope you loved them as much as I did!
Yes, there is an IKEA Museum and yes, it’s the greatest place on the face of this earth.
I’m back! And now that I’ve been abroad for an entire semester, I’m bringing my “Study Abroad 101” series back too!
I’ve been looking forward to this past week since literally before spring semester even ended. I’m, like, 80% sure I signed up for the DIS Arctic Excursion trip before I even signed up for my classes. And let me tell you, the literal months of anticipation did. not. disappoint. I think I pinched myself maybe 30 times in the last five days because I couldn’t believe that this was actually my life right now, that I was actually flying through a forest covered in 3+ feet of snow on a dogsled (and that was just the last day!). Keep reading to hear all about our incredible adventures above the Arctic Circle in Kiruna, Sweden!
Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve reached the last day and final blog post about the grand Scandinavian adventure my mom and I took last week. On our last day in Helsinki, we took the ferry down to Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, for the afternoon!
Our second-to-last stop (not done yet, folks) on our grand adventure was Helsinki, Finland!
The third stop on our list? Stockholm, Sweden! I’m really, really glad we had two full days here; I don’t think we could have seen everything we wanted to see in just one day. I wasn’t sure how I felt about Stockholm at first, but by the end of our second day there it had risen to second place on my list of favorite cities we visited (the first is Copenhagen, probably for the rest of forever).
