I never dreamed in my wildest dreams that I would one day call Copenhagen home. To be fairly honest… Denmark had never even been on my bucket list. Scandinavia, however, was exactly that: my wildest – most impossible – dream.

But then one day, out of the blue, I found myself saying yes to a move that would take me almost to the pole, and within 3 weeks I was smack in the middle of the hippest, most vibrant hub and beloved center of Scandinavia.

It’s the home of Hygge, where pastries are a food group, candles are a household staple, buildings are like colorful LEGO (who, by the way, are also Danes), music festivals are never-ending, Christmas markets compete only with the North Pole, work-life balance is not a myth, safety is a far-off concern… I could honestly go on forever.

I fell in love with Copenhagen from the moment I laid eyes on it. And nothing, not even brilliant photos, can give it justice.
