How does it feel to travel alone to a country where you don’t speak the language and know no one? And the only language you bring is your own? When I traveled in Denmark, stopping a random person on the street for help was easy. I didn’t face a language barrier because most Danish people and travelers or tourists I bumped into spoke English until I met Cecelia.
14 Dec 2014 Copenhagen, Denmark It was Sunday and it was the day Rebecca and Solveign sent me off to my hostel. And just like the day before, we walked. It was also the day I really felt like a serious backpacker because I was carrying a big backpack behind me and a small one in front of me. Pretty heavy stuff I had on my body and to walk 20 minutes with two heavy backpacks was not fun, at all.

When you stay with locals, they will offer to give a free general guided tour of their area. This was exactly what Solveign and Rebecca did on this day, except they are not from Copenhagen.
These two women, in their early 20s, are from Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark. Solveign moved to Copenhagen to study nursing while Rebecca was just visiting – mainly to welcome me and explore the city together.

It took me three planes and almost a day to finally reach the southern-most Scandinavian country. I was one hour behind schedule when I touched down at Københavns Lufthavn.
I had a good sleep until I was awakened about 7.30am. Come and look outside the window, Mom Lea whispered to my morning face. I jumped out of bed and the rest is history. I didn’t expect snow to fall in Aarhus that soon but farmor was positive it is going to be a white Christmas on Dec 25th. This is just a perfect ending to my trip and for that I am blessed.
