While traveling to a new country each weekend seems quite glamorous on the gram, it’s important to not forget about your copen-home! The past two weekends I’ve spent in Copenhagen, checking things off of my bucket-list and exploring new places I randomly stumbled upon. Make the most of the weekends you have in your new home!

While I am anxiously awaiting my arrival in Europe, I am feeling a little sad to leave my friends and family in Massachusetts & Pennsylvania, so I am trying to take it all in before I go.
