Three Day Weekend to Denmark | 2018 Travels

March 6, 2019

When I moved to London I knew I wanted to travel, even if I only got to visit one place outside of the UK. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to travel as much as I would’ve liked or as much as other people do when studying abroad; mostly because all my “extra” money came from a minimum wage job and I had to cover groceries and other essentials with it.

Nonetheless, I was fortunate enough to do a couple of trips, yet I never really thought or considered going to Denmark. At the beginning of 2018, my friend told me that she was going to visit her girlfriend in Denmark after visiting me in London. After her girlfriend contacted me to surprise my friend in London I thought to myself “what if I went to Denmark?” and then I found out the roundtrip would only cost me sixty American dollars, obviously I was sold.

I flew into Billund and from there we took a 4-hour long bus ride to Copenhagen (frankly I slept for most of it).

 

I really can’t give any advice as far as hotel rooms, Airbnb or hostels as I stayed with a friend of theirs but surely there’s a lot of affordable options you can find. During our first day in Copenhagen, we walked around the city and visited the Little Mermaid statue, a cute park, and Nyhavn.





The second day was more of a half day since we had another bus ride to Aarhus, but we mostly spent our time in Nyhavn and vicinity. Also, a bit of a side note Denmark has REALLY good ice cream 15/10 would recommend. As far as eating near that area, we ate at a really cute restaurant that was really empty at the time but it was cheap, around $20 for a pasta with steak and a soda, and it was delicious so if you find yourself in Nyhavn it’s called Hereford Steak (I’ve had the receipt from that place for nine months just so I could share with you the name).





Finally, my last day we went to a sort of strip mall where you can go to the rooftop of one of the stores where they have a lounge/bar type of thing and they have one of those balconies with the transparent floor so you can look down.



My favorite part, however, was the deer park; we got to walk amongst them and it was truly life changing.




My trip to Denmark was a short one, but truly memorable. Before I go:
         + Danish kroner are hella confusing.
         + Danish ice cream is amazing.
         + They have REALLY good salted crisps.

Shout-out to Yanzel and Anne for being my tour guides and hosting me.

What I've Been Up To Since My Last Post

February 27, 2019
If I haven’t posted anything in over six months should I consider myself the worst “blogger” in history? Probably.

Hello everybody! It’s a whole new year since I posted, can you believe? (yes, I did say that in Jonathan Van Ness’ voice). Since I haven’t posted in so long I figured the most organic thing would be to update you on my life instead of just jumping into a random post.

What’s happened since we last spoke? Let’s see:

  •     Did some traveling to Denmark, Spain, and France. I’m planning on writing some posts with highlights and overall experience of my time at those places. For now though, here are some of my favorite pictures.







  •    Wrote and handed in my dissertation in a span of a week. Not my finest moment or work but hey….I passed!! Also, my friend made me take these pictures because “memories and it’s an important chapter of your life”.


  •     I cleaned out my whole flat (ugh flat?!?! She’s so pretentious…it’s an apartment!), moved out and moved back home to Puerto Rico without my family knowing because I wanted to surprise them. Honestly, it was the most stressful situation of my life, I swear.
  •    Went on a family vacation to Disney World and Universal Studios that I planned from beginning to end. We all know how much I love Disney.



  •     Turned 25 and that’s all the acknowledgment I’m willing to give to that “milestone”. The upside is, it happened whilst at Disney World so it wasn’t all THAT bad.
  •    I FINALLY SAW HAMILTON AND IN PUERTO RICO WITH LIN-MANUEL REPRISING HIS ROLE AS HAMILTON! I can’t tell you how long I waited to see this musical and not for the lack of trying, trust me I tried so many times to see it in London. I’m glad, however, that it happened in Puerto Rico. It was great, I died and went to heaven.



That brings us to now-ish…

Currently unemployed, looking for a job. We all know how fun that is… Trying to get out of the slump and getting back into the blog.

See y’all soon!
