During the trip, we got free travel weekend, so my friends and I decided to visit a nearby country, Denmark. Europe is a really interesting continent, it is so small, but it contains so many different cultures and civilization. In comparison to the United States, going to DC would take 3-4 hours of driving from New Brunswick; but in Europe, going to Amsterdam only take 2 hours of driving from Essen. Everything is so close, yet so different, different languages, different food, different structures, etc. The long history and hierarchy in Europe make this land a good exploration for people to experience.
In Copenhagen, the structures look slightly similar to what we saw in Berlin, yet they have their own unique colors. These buildings tend to have more colors and look more traditional, along with the style of Nordic countries. One of the examples is the Nyhavn, it was a historical district that provides entertainment along the canal back in the days. Now it is a tourists hot spot for them to experience the Danish colors in Copenhagen.
Moreover, Danish people love their Danish royal family; we were lucky to see a Danish parade and the Danish defense on the street. It was very fun to experience their patriotism since I am not from a country that was built up with royalties. I am really happy that we got the chance of free travel weekend, which can allow us to explore more different cultures. Personally experiencing it is different than reading it from books.
