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:
