All is well here in Denmark. The time change has been tough on me. The sun is setting now around 4:30 PM. However, I am settling in, getting used to the food, and I've made a few girlfriends!
I am going to make the most of the last 60 days in 2018. We've got a girl’s trip planned for London this weekend (my round trip flight was $20!) and I'm excited to see the city. I think the climate is a lot like Denmark- wet and grey, but rain or shine-- I'm going to see it all! Top of my list are: Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the London Bridge.
The following week I'm headed down to Málaga, Spain where my aunt Ana lives. I am excited to move into some warmer weather for a few days. And I can't wait to see the beach!
And at the beginning of December I'm headed down to Prague to see the Christmas markets with my girlfriend Sascha. I've heard such good things about the prices there, and so many people have recommended that I visit the Czech Republic.
In late December Rasmus and I plan to explore Copenhagen and celebrate a real Danish Christmas. I love being abroad during the holiday season, and I can't wait to spend some time with Rasmus' family. Today is Halloween, but earlier this week they started putting up holiday decorations around the town. Thanksgiving isn't celebrated... so it is straight on to Christmas! Hooray!
I'm traveling on a super tight budget, since I'm only working part time and we are saving for our wedding. So, I'm trying to keep my costs down by staying in hostels and mastering public transport. TripAdvisor is my best friend!
Hostels-- here I come! I just set up my account on HostelWorld, and I am looking forward to meeting other travelers. Any recommendations in London or Prague would be greatly appreciated.
Oh, and Happy Halloween! I spent $8 finding costumes for us this year; I'm pretty proud of that! Rasmus is going to be a nerd, and I'm Minnie Mouse. Apparently, adults don't really celebrate Halloween here, but we are going to find out later tonight.
