Long anticipated, I have arrived in Copenhagen once again! I have been waiting to come back here ever since I left in August, so you can only imagine how excited I am. So excited, that I keep telling Mads that it feels like I’m in a dream (especially since I basically have no possessions, but we’ll get to that later).
I flew out of Raleigh on Saturday and had two stopovers: Boston and Reykjavik. I had taken this path before, but from Copenhagen to Raleigh, so I was not worried at all, since I knew all the airports. Everything went very smoothly, my stopovers were very short, and I was able to sleep through all three flights. Everything was great up until I got to Copenhagen.
As I stood there at baggage claim watching everyone else find their luggage, I was getting more and more anxious waiting for my suitcases to appear. And they never did. No big deal. I had only lost literally everything I’ve owned, besides the books and shoes in my carry on. Out of all the crazy flights and layovers I’ve had in the past, I have never experience losing my luggage, but I guess there’s a first time for everything. Luckily, I figured out what to do, since I was not the only one who lost their luggage (well I guess it’s lucky for me but not so lucky for them). I followed the three other people to the baggage information desk and filed a case for my missing suitcases. It was not the best way to start my time in Copenhagen, but I was determined not to let it get me down!
Before we got home, we took a little detour to Natascha’s apartment, so I could try and find a new outfit for New Years. She had a lot of nice dresses, and I took my favorite, but I’m very picky, so I thought I would also look at the hostess’ dresses when I got to the New Year’s Eve party. It was a little strange to see Natascha in Denmark, since I’m so used to only seeing her in our old dorm, Alexander, but it was so nice! I can’t wait to hang out with her tomorrow. 🙂
Eventually, we finally ended up back at our apartment. It was the first time I had seen it in ages. It was a little empty, because Mads had only gotten a bed, wardrobe, and a dining table, but he had been waiting to furnish the rest until I got there so that we could pick together. I’m very happy he did that!
When I got there, he had set up a surprise for me! There was presents from him and his mom, strawberries and blueberries, a card, flowers and a lot of candles. It was so nice and thoughtful! What a great way to be welcomed back. 🙂
We only had a few short hours to spend time together before we headed to our New Year’s Eve party, so we made the most of it. 🙂 Feels so nice to be back.
UPDATE: My bags have been delivered to me!
