I was excited to take the chemical engineering unit operations lab in Copenhagen, Denmark for the month of July. To prepare for the trip I began to learn common Danish phrases and read up about the culture and differences between Denmark and the United States. I started packing a week prior after having made a list and checking local weather open (If I could go back in time I would also impact some more medication as some over-the-counter medicines in the US are not available without a prescription in Denmark). Once I arrived at the Birmingham airport with two of my friends that is when it set in that I was going abroad. This was an exciting time for us as our expectations of being in Denmark were soon to become a reality. While there we planned to visit local pubs and restaurants, museums, amusement parks, and local events. I hope to update this blog soon with exciting stories, events, and more soon!
