It's good for you.
It's taking me some time, but little by little I'm venturing out into Copenhagen on my own. Up until today, the only times I'd gone out exploring on my own, beyond trips to the grocery store, had been with other people. Today, though, after dropping off some dry cleaning for my husband, I decided to go and get myself lost.
Technically, I had a goal. I wanted to find the two big department stores in the center of town to look for a dress to wear to a wedding this weekend, as a serious lack of foresight has all of my dresses on a boat on the Atlantic at the moment. I found those two department stores, may have found a dress, and then found myself good and turned around and unsure which direction was best to go.
So, I just kept walking.
The exploring I'd done with my husband and with friends before seemed to give me just enough context to recognize a few landmarks here and there, and I found myself not far from the hotel where we spent our first two nights in town. Once there, I was able to find my way home fairly easily.
I think the little adventure has made me braver. At least, I hope so. I'm heading out again tomorrow for my first overpriced Copenhagen hair appointment, and I still have to actually buy the dress that I found.
Then, who knows. Maybe I'll take the train somewhere.
Or maybe I'm adventured out for the week and will head straight home.
Only time will tell.
