If your heart takes you back to summer in Denmark, happiness must truly be to follow it.
I find that when I live abroad and have my everyday life so far away from my family and friends it is crucial to have a date set for when we will see each other again. Since I came back to Shanghai in February it's been my plan to go back home for Danish summer time. Such a good plan!
After a busy semester in Shanghai where pace of life never seems to slow down it feels absolutely amazing to be here. Whether in Copenhagen, on the country side or on a tiny idyllic island, summer in Denmark is truly magical.
Being here under such ideal condition is a great opportunity for me to look back on the last semester in Shanghai and consider things from a distance. I find that daily life is so much easier to evaluate and consider when you leave it. From a distance I can se things from a different perspective, get a better overview and thereby consider changes I wish to make or goals I wish to pursue in the forthcoming future.
I believe that we should always make our plans for the future on a sunny day, preferably after a walk, a swim or a run in nature. It makes all the difference
