One last month in the country of hygge

It feels like yesterday when I arrived with two big suitcases at the train station in Odense and could not wait to start my Danish adventure. So, I can’t believe how fast time passed and that it’s my last month in beautiful Denmark.

Yet, over the past nine months, a lot has happened. I successfully passed two semesters at the university, got used to biking everywhere, and, most importantly, found many new friends and a second home in Odense. Living abroad, I also grew a lot and got to know myself a little better again. For example, although I love my family more than everything, I’m also okay with not seeing them for some time. And also: while moving abroad might seem scary at first, it can sometimes be the best decision ever.

And while I cannot wait to see my family and friends back home in Austria again, I’m not ready to leave yet, because there’s still so much I want to do here in the country of hygge. For example, I want to …

  1. Go to Fyns Hoved
  2. Spend a day at the beach
  3. Go to Tinderbox
  4. Visit the Odense Zoo
  5. Travel to Skagen and Aalborg
  6. Make a day trip to Ærø
  • Go for brunch at Nordatlanten
  • Have as many sundowners as possible
  • Celebrate my birthday in the Danish way
  • Throw a farewell party
  • Go out partying in Odense
  • Have another dinner with friends

… but most importantly, I want to enjoy this last month here to the fullest!
