it’s been one week since you looked at me.

So I have been in Copenhagen for almost a week, and I haven’t really written much.

I’ll recap what I’ve done so far, but first, let me introduce you to my room:

There’s also a bit of a balcony thing out that door. The annoying thing is that the sun comes through in the mornings through that bit of window that doesn’t have a curtain, waking me up at ridiculous AM in the morning. But it’s kind of good in a way, because then I actually do wake up. :)

So I’ve done a few things in the past week. Let’s recap…

day one.

27-07-2010 7.30pm: Edited. :)

I’m getting ready to move all of my things into my apartment and meet my flatmates (I hope I don’t wake them up!).

Here are some pics from the flight and yesterday to tide you over. I’ll come back and edit with more words later. But for now, this will have to do.


almost at copenhagen! :)

So, I’m currently at Changi Airport. Flying into Singapore always feels like coming home. :)

Thanks to my lovely friends who wrote me a bit of their soul to bring with me on the plane and on my travels. I will say without shame that I may have cried like a little girl.

I have just under 2 hours before I take my flight to Copenhagen, and so here I am.

It still feels quite surreal and it hasn’t really set in yet. Maybe that’s just because it’s Singapore and I am so familiar with it anyway…

Anyway, a couple of things to look up, but just to say hi, and that the first leg is complete! :))


and so here i go

Today is the day.
This time tomorrow, I should be in Copenhagen. :)


See you when I see you! :)


checking it twice.

I am at a loss. Every day I sit down and think about what things still need to be done, but I keep drawing up a blank, other than the obvious: making sure that I’ve thought of everything to pack, figuring out how to get to the places that I need to get to, making sure I have all of the right paperwork…

One of the KU websites said to bring things that remind you of home… what does that mean exactly? How much space to I have even to pack the little things…? And I’m worried that I’ll bring important things and misplace them or something. There are things that I like to have on hand, because they definitely remind me of people, and I like to pull them out and read, and look and what not. :)

What am I forgetting?

Not sure what to update… just the fact that it’s less than a week til I leave… I’ve probably done quite a few things since I last posted…

Munich: I bought tickets to head to Munich to visit AJ, so that will be exciting.

Accommodation: I’ve figured out where I’m going to stay on the first night.

Insurance: This took ages to figure out, but finally bought through Travel Insurance Direct, and probably through 1cover for the back end. Insurance companies are seriously the worst at answering your questions though! It was SOO frustrating!!

It’s been good to catch up with people over the past few weeks.
A BIG THANKS especially to all those people who came to my surprise farewell. But I’ve said as much to each of you already. :)

Anyhow, the nerves are starting to set in.  But I am heaps excited!
