The time of buying fresh notebooks, taking as many extra shifts as possible before classes start, and collecting four-ply toilet paper from relative’s bathrooms is upon students around the globe. This year, however, there is an obvious difference for many students who had planned to study abroad: COVID. The world’s operations have drastically changed (as everyone knows) but these events have students, especially international ones, in a unique predicament.
Most people have heard that Denmark ranks high globally for happiness, social progress, healthcare, and bicycle lanes. It’s also found to be the most uncorrupt country in the world by Transparency International with one of the lowest crime rates globally to top it off. While these modern features of the nordic country are already quite impressive, the Danes also have a number of historical feats to brag about.
We are now beyond a month of quarantine here at Land Sailors Travel just like many globally. The one thing we didn’t plan for this year was to be apart. We had a backup plan for every possible situation while abroad but the thing that always remained constant was the fact that we would be together—that and we definitely didn’t plan for an epidemic. Whenever we spend long periods apart we have… Read More
Here at Land Sailors Travel we are a little tired of the endless Netflix vortex (we didn’t think it would be possible, but here we are). While it’s not necessary to gain a new skill or create a side hustle during COVID-19 isolation, it is certainly nice to have a variety of options while stuck indoors – especially ones that can expand our knowledge or inspire us for the future. So, we… Read More
Most people love amusement parks. At the very least they enjoy the atmosphere of rigged carnival games and miniature donuts. Tivoli is a legendary park in the downtown core of Denmark’s capital city, Copenhagen. It is the second oldest functional amusement park in the world, the oldest being Bakken park which opened in 1583 and is a 20 minute train ride from Copehnagen in the city of Klampenborg. But what makes Trivoli… Read More
Europe is well known for its train infrastructure, rightly so. Trains in Western Europe especially have a commendable network not only between cities, but between countries. The European Union makes travel seamless between borders and often trains are faster than cars and sometimes even faster than planes, if you consider the time spent in security and at the luggage carousel. But what many travellers don’t know is that European bus routes are… Read More
I’ll start this article by stating that ATMs in Europe are *mostly* *safe*. *Mostly* meaning that you shouldn’t use questionable machines in alleyways susceptible to identity theft technology. *Safe* meaning that your identity won’t be compromised, but your bank account may be emptied more than it honestly should. Trusted Private European companies include: Euronet, EC, Bankomat, and Your Cash. That being said, it is ALWAYS better to use ATMs inside of banks… Read More
At first, we were hesitant to try rental bikes in Europe. Did they work well, were they susceptible to theft, were they worth it? The decision to try the bikes stemmed from Hannah’s nostalgic longing to ride a scooter. Admittedly, I wanted to try the rentals too but, as for a means of transportation, the cost was not as practical nor could they get us to the next destination more quickly. The… Read More
If you’ve made it to this article, you’re likely considering a N26 bank account. However, banking somewhere that doesn’t physically exist is uncanny. Is N26 legit or a scam? I am happy to say that it is a real bank and it’s actually pretty good! As with anything, however, a consumer should inform herself of a company’s practices before ruling out other options. Here is our honest and unsponsored review of N26.
It may seem like a daunting task or an abstract idea to move somewhere you’ve never been on a whim. Not knowing where you will be in a month’s time, not speaking the language, and basically experiencing everything for the first time is scary, but also really exciting.
