Today I woke up and realized that this time next week I will be in Copenhagen! It’s unbelievable that since my search for the perfect program, to the application and acceptance to DIS, the time has finally come. Although I have thought a lot about actually being abroad, I hadn’t thought much about the days leading up to it.
Today I get to meet some of the Wofford freshman from our region at the introductory party for them; they’ll be the only new Wofford students I meet until 2014 so that’s fun! It’s also my last time seeing my church family, so I’ll be saying some bittersweet goodbye’s to them. And as for the rest of the week… okay I may be alone in this but I am going to miss American food. I admit it. I’m making a list of where and what to eat including
- Chick-fil-a (which I miss on Sunday’s so it will be dearly missed for 4 months)
- Pal’s (you probably should be from east TN to understand this one)
- Moe’s (Welcome to Moe’s! an irresistible option)
- My mom’s chicken dish
And I am certain more things will pop into my mind as the week moves along. More practically speaking I’ll be converting some American dollars into the Danish currency (the krone), making copies of my passport, and securing all my packed bags. On Friday I will be in route for Copenhagen. More to come on that soon! As the Danes would say, farvel indtil næste gang!
Oh and also, for the record, I had an amazing weekend with family and my Wofford friends. Here’s a snapshot of my time with them:
