Its a great, short book that gives a lot of information about Denmark.
It is a great book, I would recommend it to those who want to learn more about Denmark and how to integrate into Danish culture. Nice language, beautiful illustrations, and easy to read. If you are considering a move to Denmark (or a marriage with a Danish person!), if you want to know what is so special about Denmark in comparison with other Scandinavian countries, this is a book for you.
This book will be useful and interesting to those who like to travel and discover new cultures, those who want to know more about one of the happiest countries in the world, Denmark, and hygge - Denmark's philosophy of life. The book contains different curious facts about Danish way of living, history and culture. But first of all this book is a personal story about love, adjusting to a new surroundings and culture, falling in love with a man and a country. The romantics and the sceptics will enjoy the exciting story of personal development, relationships and love despite the difficulties, prejudice and differences.
