End of the first month

It’s hard to believe that in a few days, my first month in Norway will be over. It’s even harder to believe that this is the longest I’ve ever been away from home. With that in mind, it’s probably a good thing that I’m here for another 5 or so months (see you all on the 4th of July, btw). I’ve decided to dedicate this post to recapping everything that I haven’t written about so far in the month of January, so here we go. I don’t want this entire […]

Spring Break I: Copenhagen

Hello! Ahhh, I’m so behind on my posts as I came back from spring break almost two weeks ago. It’s been crazy busy here in Limerick as I only have two weeks left of classes! After recovering from a ten day trip and a few essays and projects, I finally have the time to sit down and blog about spring break. I went to three different cities – Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Prague – and I’ll blog about them on separate posts. With that, our first stop was Copenhagen! This city […]

A day in Copenhagen

Anne and I only had one day to spend in Copenhagen. This was also the day following my trek over the ocean, so I was still slightly jetlagged by the time we got up in the morning. We planned to leave the next day to head to Aarhus, Anne’s hometown and the second largest city in Denmark. Our plan for Copenhagen was simple: start at one end of the city and walk down the the other end, taking the train out that night. Immediately after walking outside from the train, […]

A Working Description

Every night as I bike home  from the city or wherever I have been, I find myself trying to describe Copenhagen. It’s hard to put my understanding of and feelings toward the city into perfect words but I have been working at it. As I talk to my new peers, I ask them, “does this city feel strangely familiar to you?” A lot of them can’t believe that I’ve just said this… It’s a whole new city that I am always getting lost in and I have only been here a […]

Lauren: Sand, Sun, and Sangria

Last week I went to Portugal for a week of surfing, yoga, sangria, sand, waves, sun, and friends. I had such an amazing time!! I wish I was still there! Besides exploring and living in Copenhagen, the surfing trip has been my favorite experience abroad. We arrived in Lisbon on Saturday where we met some people from the surf lodge who drove us to Ericeira. Portuguese drivers are crazy! They honk all of the time. I was never able to determine if it was a friendly “hello” to passerby and […]

Adam: The Stock and The Cope

It was goodbye to The Os and hello to The Stock and The Cope. Evidently, in addition to a vast knowledge of Scandinavian culture, I have become a pro at abbreviating everything. This visit was a field trip that was a part of class, but let’s be real, it was a vacation. I mean, we had reading to do and places to visit, but it was a nice departure from the… excitement of normal classes. The adventure began early Saturday morning when we boarded a six-hour train ride to Stockholm. […]

Adam: Passing Not Running Up Bills

I’ve been in Norway for over a month! Or rather, I haven’t had Starbucks in over a month… Instead of talking about joining or not joining the European Union, Norwegian government needs to address the issue of not having my number one addiction anywhere in sight. I’m not saying they have to be on every corner, but one wouldn’t hurt. Monday we visited the Norwegian Parliament for class. Since I geek out for anything that has to do with government, this was the best field seminar yet. We got a […]
