It’s already been some time since I posted something about my time here in Odense for the last time. But finishing all assignments for the first semester and being back in Austria for Christmas until the end of January, there wasn’t much happening.
Back in Denmark, only two weeks later, Vicki spontaneously visited me in Odense. While the weather here wasn’t the best, I still showed her around the city and we had some great days together. At the end of February, I went back to Austria again and, this time even took Stine with me. First, we spent three days in Saalbach skiing, followed by a short visit to my home town and two more days in Vienna. Although it was pretty cold that week and I even got sick during our trip, we had such a great time, and I was so happy I could finally show Stine my home because that’s also what she did when I visited her in Odense for the first time.
Mid-March, Tatjana and I went to Riga for a weekend, where we enjoyed some sunny days exploring the city. And six days later, my family finally visited me in Denmark. And although it started snowing heavily again a few days after my family left, that didn’t stop Cecilia and me from going to Kerteminde on one of the sunny yet cold days. There, we strolled along the beach and through the woods and enjoyed a sunny afternoon by the sea.
On April 2, many festivities to celebrate HC Andersen’s birthday took place in Odense. So, after meeting Jehanne for brunch, we visited the HC Andersen Hus, which was open for free that day. And while we were strolling through Munke Mose, we even discovered the first signs of spring.
