International Travel

Across the Atlantic


It’s been one week since my flight departed from Chicago.  You could say it’s been an eventful week.  First, I stopped in Copenhagen for three nights.  Upon arrival I could hear people speaking multiple different languages.  It’s been 2.5 years since I’ve stepped out of the United States and onto foreign ground.  I felt so ready to take on a new place.

From the airport I collected my luggage and was on my way to the hostel.  I didn’t really know much about where I was going.  I only knew my metro stop, from there I was clueless.  I guess that’s just part of the adventure though, right? I got off at my stop and lugged my 43 pound suitcase up the escalator- or so I tried.  I ended up completely falling over ON the escalator.  Me and my suitcase.  It was miserable, it took a lot of strength to get back up. Off to a good start!

I got myself back together and looked around for a knowledgeable person who might know where my hostel is.  I stumbled upon two men who were eager to show me the way, but first:  beer.  We stopped at a local pub and had a couple drinks.  Talk about jet lag… I could feel it after two! After checking into my hostel, the guys showed me and my hostel roommate around the city.

Within those few days I did so much walking and exploring.  My feet still hurt 4 days later.  But it was so worth it.  The vibe to Copenhagen is just truly amazing.  It feels a bit magical, like out of a movie.  I ran into the friendliest people within the streets, at the bars, within the hostel and even on the metro! I definitely wish to go back in the future.

But now?  Life in Spain begins, as I write this on the balcony of my new home.  I’ve really only seen a tiny bit of the Spanish life and I can’t wait to see where it goes.
