Denmark & Sweden


29 April 2017

Free day with my host family. They took us to a museum in Aarhus called Moesgaard Museum (MOMU). Learned a lot about the Vikings and the history of Denmark. It was really cool. My host family had never been so it was cool to experience that with them. Took some pictures of the coasr from the museum's roof. Also stopped at a little park full of deer. They love carrots.

Went to Aarhus to see ARos. Amazing art museum. Saw the Rainbiw Bridge!!!! Also went to the Old Town in Aarhus. Saw some cute ducks. Went shopping with Camilla. She showed us around Silkeborg. I got a Danish copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Camilla took us to the bar that she works at and the sports store she works at. Two players from Silkeborg's soccer team were at the sports for a signing. I got a jersey signed for my little brother. Saw another Tesla. I have lost count of how many I've seen. I want that car. Ilse made us a traditional Danish Christmas dinner. It was amazing!!! Sooooo gooooood.
Went to Blåvand and Ribe. Saw the lighthouse, ocean, and the oldest city in Denmark. Also went to the Viking Museum. Spent the evening with my host family. I love them so much. They are so sweet and kinda and hilarious.

Gave our presentations today. Everyone said we did a great job. My host family took us to Himmelbjerget (Sky Mountain). It's one of the highest points in Denmark. It's gorgeous. We could see Silkeborg from the top as well as several other nearby cities. Also we could see the rain moving in.
