choice words about couchsurfing.org . From what I can tell, if you are solo traveling as a woman the men you stay with will probably try to get it, but in my case at least, they always backed off when they realized I wasn’t into it.
Now I realize I only stayed with two people when I was by myself, an Indian in Denmark and a Viennese dude in Austria, but it happened both times. So I guess you need to ask yourself if twice makes a pattern, and for me it definitely does.
Actually European men in general were very easy to friendzone.. I never had to explicitly say “BACK OFF” because they could always read the signs, which is important considering I was attending Salsa/Bachata congresses and music festivals by myself. And even when they realized I had a boyfriend, they didn’t recoil in horror, just carried on being my friend. Love that.
Denmark pictures. As my first destination was Copenhagen, I had no idea what to do, how I wanted to spend my time, so I just sort of wandered around the city.
Above and below are pictures inside Christiansborg Palace.
One thing I love about European cities are all the people performing in the street.

Thoughts on Copenhagen, Denmark:
Everyone CAN speak English, but they start out with Danish because it’s rude to assume you’re a foreigner.
To blend in, dress in many many black layers. (and be a tall blonde woman).
It’s cold. Hence the layers.
I really didn’t do much here. I don’t think I really understood how to experience a city. Also it unnerved me how expensive everything was..
