Danish in Canada

I am danish, born in 1990 in Denmark, Copenhagen, I have lived in Canada, Montréal since 2017. Before that, I lived in the USA, NYC for a few months, and England, London for 5 years, which means I have been living abroad since 2010. (Wow) 

What I learned is that even if you love the country you moved to, living abroad makes you realize the values of your home country even more than before.

As a real Scandinavian, I am a colossal hygge-fan (Hygge=coziness) I believe in living in the moment, and that the most simple things are the most beautiful.
I am here to guide you to a life full of gratitude, coziness, and Scandinavian design. 

Canada is full of immigrants and that is what makes Canada very special in a beautiful way, however, the word “Hygge” is not very famous here.

Happy Danish

From a report back in 2019, danish people were the 2nd world’s happiest people…Why is that? Here are some bullet points:

  • Our happiness comes from our way of thinking! For example, the rest of the world thinks it’s crazy that we happily leave our babies in a pram in front of the local cafe, while we have ourselves a medium latte. 

We understand why you would think that, but us Danish trust each other!
Believe it or not, we really do! 

  • We value family and social life more than a career. Some people say the danish has a great balance when it comes to work and personal life.
  • “Hygge” we are huge fans of knit socks and fireplace with some good friends! 
  • We also…Oh, wait! I better stop myself before I go on and on!
