Portland to Copenhagen

I flew PDX-SEA-KEF-CPH on my way to a semester abroad in Denmark at DTU. Rather than writing a lot about the trip, and because everything for creating these posts is in Danish, I will let the photos tell the story.
Mt. Baker from seat 18A on an Iceland Air flight.
 A ski resort in Canada, either Silverstar or Big White with Williams Lake near the top of the photo.
A large peak somewhere in the Canadian Rockies. It is likely Assiniboine or Robson.
In flight pillow.
A sample of the Icelantic language.
Sunset just before passing over Fort McMurry.
Northern lights out the window at 2-3AM over Baffin Island and Greenland.
A cold, snowy and dark Keflavik International.
We ended up waiting almost an hour for the plane to be deiced because the precipitation was hard enough to require two passes with the deicer in many cases. The flight departed at 8AM and it was still pitch black. Sunrise didn't come until an hour later in flight, and further east.
