Back to Reality

I would have to say that the overall trip was unforgettable. There were several unexpected events, but I think that was just part of the experience. You never quite get it right the first time, but eventually you catch on and get how to survive and make the most of the situations. I definitely did…

Illustrating a World

Coming to Scandinavia, I have noticed that art is displayed in many forms throughout the cities. Whether through the forms of artwork or sculptures, to building designs and furniture, Scandinavia has much to offer.    In each country, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, I have noticed that there is a similar simplicity when it comes to…

Unforgettable Memories

As I write this post, the realities of how soon this trip ends is near. It’s officially the last day here in Stockholm, Sweden and I can now say that I have flown out of the country to see three beautiful and breathtaking countries. Denmark, Norway, and Sweden have welcomed me well, and will always…

Den Norske Opera & Ballett

Den Norske Opera & Ballett, also known as the Oslo Opera house, opened in 2008 in Oslo, Norway costing roughly $52 million U.S. dollars. It may seem like an awful lot of money, but the design of the building is magnificent. This opera house has three stages that can be used all at the same…

Cruising My Way to Oslo, Norway

During this trip, I have definitely tried a lot of new things that I haven’t before. From getting my first passport to flying out of the country, I can now say that I have also been on a cruise ship for the first time. As I bid Copenhagen, Denmark farewell, my next destination is Oslo,…

History of Architecture 

Today was filled with walks to various museums starting with a visit to the Vasa Museum, followed by a delicious lunch, a unique trip to the Skansen outdoor museum, and ended with a visit to the Modern Art Museum that is in the same complex as the Swedish Center for Architecture and Design which is…

Because I’m an Interior Design Geek

By now, most of you will know that I am an interior design major. For those who don’t, now you know. I am very passionate about things that are design related, and because of this, I tend to “geek out” about them. This trip has been extremely design related and I absolutely love it. The…

City, Statues, or Trolls: Journey Through Scandinavia 

This trip to Scandinavia has been an amazing experience and each country that we visit has been a different experience with its own unique environment. From spending at least two days in each country, I can say that each country, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden each have their own strong characteristic that makes them different from…

Multicultural Metropolis

Today’s journey was supposed to be a train ride to Malmo, Sweden where the population is made up of more than 50 nationalities. But of course, not everything goes according to plan, so instead of taking a trip to Malmo, I ventured out with the interior design group to check out the homeland of IKEA…

What’s in Your Trash?

Today’s exploration began with a little bit of rain, and no umbrella. But the rain didn’t stop me from taking the chance to explore new places. So instead of letting the rain ruin my plans, a group of interior design girls and I ventured out. Our main priorities were to check out several interior design…

A Tour-iffic Day

Rushing out the door, walking as fast as my little legs could stride, our group was on the way out to meet our tour guide. After missing our first initial tour guide the day before, we figured we could attend another one the next day. Unfortunately for us, we weren’t able to go on the…

Let the Adventures Begin

After a somewhat painful eight hour flight, we finally landed in Copenhagen, Denmark. I have to say, it didn’t hit me that I was out of the country until I stepped out of the plane and struggled to find signs that were in English. Not to mention that the surrounding environment was different (in a…
