Hello from Copenhagen!


Like coffee? Pretty buildings? Gluten free pastries? This city has it all, and I’d love to share them with you. Follow along here as I eat, paint, and explore my way around Copenhagen, my home for the semester, and beyond.


One last weekend getaway! This time I headed to Germany to find some bratwurst and see how Glühwein measures up to Gløgg. My friend and I spent two days exploring museums, Christmas markets, and all of the history that Berlin has to offer. We visited the DDR Museum, the history museum, Checkpoint Charlie, and had…

Ladies trippppp! A few months ago, a few of my friends and I found tickets to Budapest in November for something like 13 euros. DIS gives us a little break from class over the week of Thanksgiving, so we swapped turkey and stuffing for goulash and headed to Hungary! Soaking in the thermal baths definitely…

Quick weekend trip to Italy? Yes please! Not sure when I’m going to ever be able to say that again, so I bought some cheap RyanAir tickets, packed my carry on, and set out in search of gluten free pizza. And we found some! And tiramisu. And LOTS of gelato. Nothing goes with INCREDIBLE gluten…

Favorite Painting Spots

My watercolors always come with me wherever I travel, so I was super excited about the opportunity to take watercolor class at DIS this semester.

My section of Globalization and European Economies got to go to Paris, where we spent five days exploring, walking (a LOT), learning how to navigate the metro, and eating super yummy food (see my blog on this trip’s food…

Pumpkin Carving

It’s definitely fall here in Copenhagen–the leaves outside our apartment window are yellow, everyone’s wearing scarves and trench coats, and each night the sun sets closer and closer to lunch. Fall always reminds me of home, so this week I’ve been feeling a little homesick for my family’s halloween traditions and pumpkin-flavored everything back in…

After warming up in Seville for the first few days of my study break, my boyfriend and I headed to France. It had been a while since I had practiced any French, but I did successfully get us out of the airport to the train, so I think all those years of French class finally…

For our week long study break, I packed up the few short-sleeve tops I brought with me and headed south. My boyfriend is studying abroad in Seville, Spain this semester, so I went to visit him there for 6 days. I had never been to Spain before, but its beautiful cathedrals, gardens, and sunny little…

Living in a Residential Community

I chose to live in a Residential Community for my housing option at DIS, and it has been one of the best parts of my experience here so far. Living in a Residential Community means that I live in apartment-style housing with other DIS students from schools in the U.S. There are residential communities in…
