At the University I won a trip to Denmark for a week, I was so anxious because it was my first trip alone.

Learn Danish, the simple way to communicate
Take advantage of the day for walks, the nights are cold and foggy.
I traveled from the Buenos Aires airport, I had many expectations, I never participated in a biology contest, and I won the prize, Denmark, I studied each site a lot, since it is not usual to get a direct ticket to Denmark, I prefer perhaps the beach or some mountain.
The trip was very comfortable and I went direct, on the way back I had to make a change in Amsterdam so I did not hesitate to venture.
I arrived at night and the weather was very complicated, I thought we were not going to land, the fog is very dense, it almost seems like a story like the movies, with its colorful houses but without the sun it looked like a story, the canals reminded me Perhaps that in another life I went to Venezia, wide and technological, I took a taxi at the door of the airport and went to my designated hotel.
Many speak English, it is the second language by default, learning Danish in one day would be an impossible task for a Spanish speaker.
But in the passing of the days and in the university the meeting was very pleasant and profitable to also learn about certain cultures as we are connected, this time through science.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
Malmo is a city that generated a lot of expectation, luckily in the plan we left it last with my companions, it was just the desire to change country, perhaps to feel you for a while in Sweden, it would not have changed anymore since the weather I help a lot, they are places where the climate is unfortunately gray, and it feels cold, the summer felt spectacular, the information perhaps alien to many things made me spend a little more, you always have to go with a margin on the card since the Many things cost of living are expensive.
Anything go wrong during the trip?
The only bad thing, if we are going to call it bad, is the flight delay, when it was my turn to return I assumed that something would happen with that flight, in Amsterdam they treated me very well and the truth is that it was very well replaced, the incredible hotel, the People are very host and on the contrary would bring those habits to my beautiful Cordoba, although I would not change anything. Thanks Amsterdam! I will be back...
How was the food?
As this trip was improvised, in Amsterdam the Albert Heijn shops are very well known, there breakfast is very cheap or buy a soda, chocolates or whatever you need, a well-stocked drugstore, also one if you don't know and don't know if you are going to like it. the typical food there is Mc Donalds and the coffee anywhere is always welcome.
What tips would you give a friend?
This trip I would do with my friends, they recommended visiting coffee shops, breweries and also taking the Eurail or Interrail train and embarking on an adventure, yes or no knowing English.
Coats, waterproof clothing for the rain, sunglasses and sunscreen when the sun is out, sometimes it burns our faces a bit from riding a lot.
For longer distances, the train is the option that in a very short time you find yourself from one point to the other, that is, sometimes it is convenient to have a weekly or annual subscription like what they use that means to work or to have a bicycle, the Tesla taxi It is also known that it is very usual to take a taxi from the airport. The city is manageable by bike.
The only surprise was the deelayed of the flight, the rest was a surprise of beautiful things in my trip.
This is a trip set up by the Faculty of Engineering, but the students who usually go on this trip are contributing their experiences, The classic Airbnb and the booking were the sites that I visited with excellent scores, a fact I met Craigslist there and there you can see more accessible offers and randoms.
