Apologies for going MIA for a while, exam season came out of nowhere. Turns out you still have to study during your study abroad- just a heads up for those about to go on exchange!
So what’s new in Copenhagen? Well, after what feels like months and months of cold weather, we are slowly but surely heading towards warmer and brighter weather. We even managed to have a semi-successful barbeque a week ago. Although, it did take us 40 minutes to get a decent fire going and as soon as we put food on the grill, someone managed to knock it over.
With the better weather did come the realisation that this semester has gone even faster than the last, and I am by no means ready to leave. So, I made a bucket list of the things I haven’t done yet in Copenhagen, which gave me the idea to create a “Must do on a Danish exchange” list for anyone coming on exchange this year.
- Have a Danish Pastry
- See the views from the Danish Parliament
- Take a water canal tour
- Have lunch at Papirøen
- Have a chilled afternoon in the Botanical Gardens (Botanisk Have)
- See the Cherry Blossoms in Bispebjerg Cemetery in April
- Take a day trip to Malmö
- Have an ‘eclectic’ night out in Kødbyen
- Visit Norway
- Be the stereotypical tourist and walk along Nyhavn
As always, I am here if you have any questions about studying in Copenhagen, or just exchange in general:
