I went to Berlin two weeks ago with four friends. I found the city very cool, but it felt much much colder than in Copenhagen. We visited the Brandenburg gate, and randomly wondered into the Reichstag, the Berliner Dom, The Jewish Memorial and Checkpoint Charlie. Our last day in Berlin, we went to Sachausen Concentration camp, which was extremely powerful and intense.

I got into Copenhagen yesterday at 13.30 and got to my dorm around 14.00. My dorm is pretty nice and my roommate seems to be a lot easier to get along with than Cricket. I havent really got all my stuff unpacked yet as I have spent most of my time socializing with the other residents. Copenhagen is awesome, and I am having a blast so far. We went and walked around the city today, it was really cool but most of it was closed because it is sunday. A few other guys and I are going to go to a pub to watch the vikings game in a few hours, as it would not be on here and their is not a single TV in the whole dorm. Go Vikings!

...I find myself just a few hours from beginning my journey to Denmark. I will first fly to Chicago and from there I fly directly to Copenhagen. I am excited nervous and sad all at the same time. Excited for the adventure that lays before me. Nervous about how the trip will go and if I have everything that I will need. Sad about all the people that I am leaving behind for 5 months.
