While I do plan to travel on my own some weekends, I think the DIS trips that are integrated with individual classes will be an amazing way to take learning beyond the classroom. There's something incredibly exciting about the prospect of learning about the former USSR or the great Greek artist and then getting to walk through the cities and see the monuments and statues.
When I'm not busy soaking up the Danish culture, I hope to make it to Norway, Sweden and Finland as well (I absoltuely must go to Stockholm and pretend to be Lisbeth Salander for a day). I'm also hoping to go down to Berlin, Paris, and Vienna to meet up with friends. If anyone has any suggestions (or, more importantly) affordable travel websites, I would love to know. It's going to be a busy four months but, hey YOLDO (you only live in Denmark once)!
