I was beyond excited for this, which I had found on a buzzfeed earlier in the year and continued to keep note of.

That night, we went out together and it was so much fun. Leaving the bar, I was taken aback by the daylight. While the sun rises very early in Prague as well, this was much earlier and much brighter. Melissa, Adam, myself, and a few others headed to the Happy Wall where Munt and I took this picture for our friends from school. We finished the night sitting on the canal, watching the sun fully rise. Its official, I love Copenhagen!
