I was in 4th grade when I knew I wanted to go to Copenhagen.
We were reading Number the Stars, which takes place in that very city. As a result, we spent the better part of a few months learning about Denmark, Danish culture and the language. I can still count to ten in Danish. Ask me sometime.
So a weekend in Copenhagen was the stuff of dreams. I was way too excited about it. Over ten years later, I'd see the city I had read and heard so much about. I even reread Number the Stars beforehand. Still as incredible as I remembered. Please give it a read if you get the chance.
I'd like to say the trip went off without a hitch, but I'm not a great liar, so use this post as an opportunity to learn from my mistakes. Let's go!
