Leaving home

I'm leaving for Copenhagen in less than 12 hours. From there, I'm flying to Amsterdam on Wednesday morning. I'll be back in Århus next Monday, February 1st. It's going to be an exciting trip, the first time I'm leaving Århus since I arrived three weeks ago, and it'll be the first time I'm going to Amsterdam.

The funny thing is, I think I will miss Århus a little bit. Part of this is the normal anxiety of traveling; it's less stressful if I just stayed "home" for this week. I've gotten settled here. I feel almost comfortable in my new bed. But I think I might buy a better pillow soon.

But I think this feeling owes a larger part of the people I've met in three short weeks, people I can call friends. I've established a kind of rhythm here and going to Amsterdam is breaking that pattern. There are some people I have seen practically everyday since January 6 when the Denmark Today classes started but I won't see them for a week now. Actually, I likely won't see them as often when I return from Amsterdam because regular classes will start and we'll go to our respective classes.

A new city awaits me. Good night for now.
