I recently got to know that I'll be working as a photojournalist in the Danish newspaper Politiken for my one semester traineeship this autumn. I'm overwhelmed by joy. It's such an amazing opportunity. And I'm sure that I'll learn an incredible lot over there - both as a photojournalist and as a individual.
This means that I'll be moving to Copenhagen soon. In August to be precise.
If you look aside from my frightening thoughts about working in such a great newspaper. One of the other most scary parts about moving there is the fact that I don't know the city - at all. Yes, I've been there before. But my only memories of Copenhagen is painted by the young age I was in when I last visited. And clearly, Copenhagen is much more than the amusement park, a teddy with a sombrero that I bough, and the exiting new ice cream that I tasted, when I was 7.
This is why I've decided to create my own Copenhagen. Starting this June, 28th, I'll be crossing the fjord to explore. To Speed date the city, the culture and its people, for a couple of weeks.
My plan is to stay at various locations and with different persons, using couch surfing as a tool to find new hosts and new friends. What better way is there really to create my own Copenhagen before moving there? Well, wish me luck.
You're all welcome to follow my journey here. I'll try to keep you all (mom) posted. And yes, as weird as it feels to write in English, I'll do that for all my international followers.
