En route to Denmark

Here we are in Denmark! The excitement of being in Europe for the first time with Javier is finally hitting me – I spent a little too much thought and energy dreading the flight to really think about how much fun we are going to have here with my parents! Javier and I always wondered when we would ever get the chance to go to Europe together, since the international trips we’re most likely to take when we have the money is to go to Chile to visit his parents. Then this opportunity came along – my dad was hired to speak at a conference here and they asked him to put together a Nashville band to play a concert at the conference. They flew me out here and covered room / board, and my honorarium almost covered all of Javier’s ticket! So it was a perfect chance for us to get to Europe together – who knows when we’ll be able to again. Aqui estamos en Dinamarca! La emocion de estar en Europa por primera vez con Javier por fin me ha pegdo – pase mucho tiempo y gaste much energia pensando en lo horrible que seria el vuelo, en vez de lo bien que lo vamos a pasar con mis papas! Javier y yo siempre pensabamos cuando tendriamos la oportunidad de ir a Europa juntos, ya que cualquier viaje internacional que podamos hacer, lo mas seguro es que sea a Chile a visitar a su familia. Luego esta oportunidad surgio – mi papa fue conratado para hablar en una conferencia en Copenhagen y tambien le pidieron que armara una banda musical de Nashville para tocar en un concierto en la conferencia. Me pagaron el pasaje, comida, y estadi, y mi honorario cubrio casi todo el pasaje de Javier! Asi que fue la oportunidad perfecta para venir a Europa juntos – quien sabe cuando sera la proxima vez.

I’ve been to many countries in Europe thanks to my study abroad experience back in the summer of 2005 in London, the spring semester of 2006 in Spain and then my subsequent return to Europe in 2007 and 2010 to visit friends. This is my first time in Copenhagen, and we’ll be staying here for ta few days. My dad has been here twice before so he knows his way around enough to know some of the fun things to do, and we’ll definitely do some exploring. He estado en varios paises de Europa gracias y mi estudio internacional en el verano del 2005 en Londres y la primavera del 2006 en Espana. Tambien regrese el 2007 a visitar amigos. Esta es mi primera vez en Copenhagen, y nos quedaremos por varios dias. Mi papa ha sido contratado dos veces antes asi que el sabe como moverse y conoce de cosas entretenidas para hacer y seguro que exploraremos un poco.

The trip was fairly uneventful – the flight to Chicago was no fun because it was storming and we were in one of those teeny tiny American Airline planes (never again!). Once we got on to the flight to Denmark I had a beer and slept for about 6 of the 7 hours we were in the air. I only woke up for meals! It was great. Javier didn’t get as much sleep, so at first we just hung out in the hotel while he napped. Then we left to explore the city with my parents – obviously I was eager to get my camera out into the city! We decided that the cheapest route to beer and pretty views was to take a 6-pack of Carlsberg to the canal and sit and watch the sunset behind the beautiful architecture. It was a perfect, relaxing way to end the first day! El viaje no tuvo mucho problemas, fue bien facil – el viaje a Chicago no fue entretenido porque habia tormenta y nos pusieron en esos aviones chiquitos de American Airlines (nunca mas!). Una vez que nos subimos al avion rumbo a Dinamarca me tome una cerveza y dormi por 6 de las 7 horas de vuelo. Solo me desperte para comer! Fue genial. Javier no durmió mucho, así que nosotros pasamos un rato en el hotel mientras el dormía siesta. Una vez que despertó salimos a explorar la ciudad con mis papas – obviamente tenia ganas de salir con mi cámara! Decidimos ir por la ruta mas barata de como combinar cervezas y lugares para ver, asi que nos compramos un pack e 6 cervezas y nos sentamos a la orilla del canal a ver la puesta de sol y la arquitectura. Fue perfecto, una manera muy relajante de terminar el dia.
