Katherine McElderry’s exchange to Denmark
Over the summer Katherine went on a month long exchange to a small town in Denmark. Maria Bustos, Abby Mitchell, and I (Alivea Harsanyi) found out a bit more about Katherine’s experience. The following are some questions that Katherine answered for us.
Q: Where did you go?
A: Klampenborg, Denmark.
Q: What was the city like?
A: An old European city. It is a centralized city with many shops and stores in one area.
Q: Who did you stay with?
A: I stayed with a host family and I had a host sister.
Q: How did the exchange work?
A: I went to Klampenborg for the first month of summer, and then my host sister came to Hood River the last month of summer.
Q: What was daily life like in Denmark?
A: It was summer while I was there so it was very relaxed. We would bike all over the city. We had a lot more freedom. The main source of transportation is busses and train, so some days we would go to neighboring cities.
Q: What was your favorite thing you did while you were there?
A: There were a lot of aspects I enjoyed but I loved the sailing trip we went on the last week I was there.
Q: If you had advice to give to someone going on exchange what would you say?
A: take everything from an objective standpoint because different aspects of culture are going to be different. And when someone asks you if you want to do something, just say yes!
