Copenhagen Canal Tour

Greetings from Copenhagen, Denmark! I arrived safely last Wednesday and have spent the past week getting acclimated to my new surroundings! It’s been amazing so far. Aside from this entry, I won’t be posting much about my trip here.

The school I will be attending took us on a tour of Copenhagen’s canals as part of our orientation, and I unfortunately didn’t bring my camera to take pictures. So I went back the next day on a different boat tour just to take some pictures. Here are just a few of the shots I took:

Savannah, Georgia

Hey, I’m back! Last week my family took a road trip to Savannah, Georgia. My grandmother grew up there, and we visited many of the places from her childhood during the trip — her high school, churches, the public library, her old neighborhoods to name a few. Of course, things had changed since she was last there, but it was still very exciting (and meaningful)! We had a lot of fun. Below are just a few of the other sights we saw.

This is the beautiful house in which we stayed, 109 W. Jones Street. It’s been historically restored from the 1800s and is used for vacation rentals. My uncle thought it would be better than a hotel, because then we could relax and have more space and privacy. It was all that and more, and very luxurious!
