Solo trip to Copenhagen ✈

To kick off finding peace in solitude, I completed my first solo trip to Copenhagen! I’ve been wanting to go on a solo trip for ages, but I kept pushing it back due to the fear of the unknown and the dangers found when venturing into a new territory. My fears were justifiable at first but not justifiable enough for me to keep holding myself back.
