Photographing, laughing, and eating my way through Copenhagen

Stories from my greatest adventure yet

“Don’t be a tourist, be a traveler.” – unknown

During my 120-day tenure in Denmark, I will make the jump from tourist to traveler, and then from traveler to native. Read more about my journey below!

  • 155,520 Minutes Later… in Fuji Film

    December 8, 2019 by

    Last Thursday I had a (crazy) reality check from my Travel Writing professor: “Wow… 105 days ago we were all sitting in this classroom for the first time, just getting to know each others names.” 105 days! That makes for 151,200 minutes, and, by the time I’m writing this blog post, that metric has even… Read more

  • Calling Copenhagen Home with Fuji Film

    November 22, 2019 by

    With only three Fridays left in Copenhagen, the pressure is mounting to explore anything and everything. A lot of my conversations have gone like this: what, there’s another Christmas market? Okay let’s do it. Bakery 45 minutes away? Already on my way. In other words, my motivation to fall in love with Copenhagen and call… Read more

I feel like I’ve lived five lifetimes in the last two weeks and all I have to show for it are… Read more

    I’m writing to you live from my cozy bed on Wednesday, November 13 (or, as the Danes would say, the fourth day of week 46), ready to get serious about something near and dear to my heart: the wonderful world of Instagram. These past three months have been jam-packed with adventures and profound beauty, and… Read more

  • Film Friday back in CPH

    October 19, 2019 by

    Another week has come and gone in the flash of a camera shutter, so it is only right that I only have polaroids to show for it. Before I came to Copenhagen, I remember looking at the DIS semester calendar thinking “huh, I can do this! A week of travel here, a week of chilling… Read more
