I’ve been away from Denmark for a whole month now, and aside from the differences in language, behavior, and average daily amount of sunshine, (all of which I’ll get around to writing about someday) this is basically the biggest contrast:

Anyone who says time travel is impossible has just never flown from East to West.

There are lots of feels that come along with packing up and moving across ocean and continent, leaving so many things and people behind and not knowing if or when you’ll ever see them again. But, the literal “bright” side is that I’m coming home to such a beautiful place!
