Hey everyone, I landed safe and sound in Copenhagen yesterday with my buddy Josh, also from Pratt. For the next six weeks we’re enrolled in the DIS (Danish Institute for Study Abroad) Textile and Furniture Design Program. I’m super excited as pattern and textile design has been a growing interest of mine for the last few months. Last summer my friend Stephanie did the same program and loved it, so I thought it would be a perfect way to finish my time at Pratt. You can read about her study abroad adventure here.
For our first two days in Copenhagen, Josh and I have been walking all around the city. I have about two days of photos I thought I’d share. Tomorrow we move into our on campus housing, so I’m looking forward to staying somewhere longer than a few nights. I hope to find a bike to rent so I can explore more quickly. I also need to look into buying my own food, b/c eating out is sooooo expensive. I bought a coke and a burger, $45 USD. Tomorrow I meet everyone in the program, so more updates coming soon. Side note, when I was at 7-11 (they are everywhere here), the guy thought I was Danish, I finally found my native land, I look like the natives! Except … the tall blondes here are still tanner than I am!
Here are some pictures from the first two days.
Bikes everywhere! Lots of city squares like this.
Walked around the canal, lots of boats and outdoor restaurants around. People can also drink outside, good spot to do it!
Name that typeface on the wall!!
Another cool music festival poster.
