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!

  • The Pups of Copenhagen (Part 2)

    February 13, 2020 by

    I may or may not have a problem with dogs. Kind of like when a dog sees a squirrel and it totally zeros in on its target, every time I see a dog my brain goes completely blank and all I can see is cuteness and fluff and paws and eyes of love. Which brings… Read more

  • Why I Decided On A Full Year With DIS

    February 9, 2020 by

    Hey there, welcome back to my Danish blog of deserts, photos, and dogs! When I started this blog in August I intended to document my fall semester with DIS, and rightfully named it 120 Days in Denmark. Well, I’m here to tell you that title is somewhat false.

  • Fuji Film Friday- 4 countries later!

    November 15, 2019 by

    Hey Fuji Film Friday, its been a minute. Since I last posted a polaroid update I’ve been pretty busy: I’ve stepped foot in four different countries, lost my phone, and taken over 5,000 photos. I feel like I’ve lived five lifetimes in the last two weeks and all I have to show for it are… Read more
