Short Study Tour Recap
In a word, my short study tour was cheesy. Literally. We visited both an organic dairy and a cave where cheese is stored and had numerous samples at both locations.
Thursday morning at 6:20am, my core class, European Sustainable Development, left Copenhagen on a bus headed to Western Denmark. The overall experience was amazing and exhausting. I think it’s easiest to explain the rest of the adventure through pictures:
Early morning hike to see the pre-viking burial mounds with my professor.

A wonderful wine and “cave cheese” tasting in a cave.
A view of the fjord and the bed & breakfast we stayed in our first night in Western Denmark.
