Editor’s foreword: I am super proud of our editorial assistant Olivia for being awarded a scholarship to study overseas this year. Luckily, she will still be working for us part-time, with the bonus of all that Danish design inspiration! Travel safe, Olivia! Jen
So, ten days from tomorrow I’ll be off, flying 23 hours to the other side of the world where I’ll be for the next four and half months. I’m trying to stay calm, cool and collected but it’s not going so well!
I’m off to Copenhagen, Denmark, for my last semester of university, where I’ll be undertaking a mix of journalism subjects and a subject on Danish architecture and design… I couldn’t resist! I’ll also still be writing for Interiors Addict, switching places with Jen as the Europe-based writer when she returns to Australia next month. Haven’t we become the little global operation?! As well-known pioneers in design, I hope to introduce you to some great Scandi finds and if my suitcase allows it, hopefully bring some beautiful goodies home with me.
Originally from England, I’m looking forward to returning to Europe and being only a couple of hours’ flight away from places like London, Paris and Rome. Ah, someone has to do it! I’m also looking forward to living in another country and really immersing myself in the culture. I visited Copenhagen for four days last year and absolutely loved it, so I have high hopes for the next few months, though I have to admit I’m getting very sad by the idea of leaving all my loved ones behind, especially my kitties!
