Going abroad also means finding a new place to stay. But the good thing is: when you move to Denmark and study at SDU, the university assists you with finding accommodation. You only need to sign up for it before the deadline. Although I received two offers from them, which I declined due to their location, I had to look for a place, preferably in the city center, myself. And finding one was more difficult than I thought.
I started searching for accommodation quite early but hadn’t been lucky for weeks. However, the good thing was that I could stay with Stine meanwhile. And after signing up at different housing sites and joining several Facebook groups for housing in Odense, I finally found the perfect place five minutes by bike from the city center and with a great flatmate, Nanna, as well.
And on September 14, I could finally move in. Yet, I had to get furniture for my room first and thus went shopping with Stine at IKEA. After we dropped everything off at my new place, I also got all my stuff from Stine’s place and moved them to my new one. The next day, I went with Nanna and her parents to IKEA again to get the rest of the pieces of furniture. As I love furnishing, I started building up all items right after we got back and, after some hours, nearly everything was done. The next day, I built up the last piece of furniture and even decorated everything to make the room even more hyggeligt (Danish for “cozy”).
