As today is the end of my first month travelling, I was thinking about this girl I met who asked me if I ever got lonely.  And the truth is, I'm not at all.  Mostly because I'm always meeting new people and hardly ever actually alone.  But also because I like to be alone, and once the new friends leave, I don't feel sad, I think "I'm FREEEE!"  Just because I'm not lonely, doesn't mean I don't miss my friends and family though!  Because I do.  So clearly, you all are far more fun than anyone I have met thus far, and I think of you all the time.

I am in Copenhagen and currently wearing 5 layers on top and two pairs of pants.  I have also just learned that the pastry we fondly refer to as a Danish is called wienerbrød, which translates to 'bread from Vienna' because the pastry actually originated in Austria!!!  I am appalled.  This must be how little kids feel when they find out Santa Claus is really their parents.
