Living 17,500 odd kilometres away from your birth country and close relatives, as I do, can make it challenging to see any positives about that distance: arduous long-haul flights, obnoxious time differences, a lack of regular catch-up time with loved ones, and quality time being replaced by Skype calls.

Twelve years ago, trends and social currents between countries appeared to have more variation. Information didn’t travel as fast as it does now, and it showed. I remember calling Denmark (via dial-up) from New Zealand in the early 2000s, laughing as I recounted how Kiwis didn’t rake up their garden leaves – they used a … Continue reading A Dane abroad: Same same… and no different

I thought my English was good when I first moved to New Zealand. But it turns out there’s a big difference between writing essays at school and having real-life interactions in another language. Eek! Nevertheless, once you get over the initial pitfalls, and past a few awkward situations, there’s light at the end of the … Continue reading A Dane Abroad: Fluency takes time, but it’s worth the effort!

A Dane Abroad: The cycling’s never quite how you remembered it!

Years of absence from Denmark filled my head with dreamy images of biking: flowy dresses, the sun shining and ‘gentle breezes playing with my hair’ kind of stuff.
