FAQs Med Mig

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

    So maybe I'm still dreaming of the past a little, but it was just a couple months ago so gimme some slack! ;) I figured I'd do some of the questions I've been asked since returning from Denmark. And for those of you reading my blog, I shouldn't have to mention anything about the work experience... So we'll move on from that. 
First of all, here's Denmark to answer one FAQ!
 (Don't feel bad if ya didnt know... I wouldn't have either if  hadn't gotten a job there!)
What was your favorite part about Denmark?
Probably just the laid-back lifestyle. I loved biking everywhere, hanging out in all the parks, gardens, and the bridge, enjoying lots of festivals and live music, hangin out on rooftops and canals... Awesome nightlife too. It's just a super cool place. 
And, of course, all the people I met making it even more amazing. 

Where was your favorite place you went?
Switzerland. It was my first big trip out of the country, I went all by myself, and had my first experiences with couch surfing, a hostel, and hitchhiking. It was ridiculously beautiful, the city had a great vibe, and I just had some of the coolest experiences. I mean staying at a dairy farm and waking up at sunrise to help milk some cows... Come on now. 
All the people I met along the way were amazing too. 
But all my trips were really great.

What would you say Denmark has the best of/is known for, like Italy has their pizza, France their wine and cheese, etc... 
The breads and pastries are definitely one of Denmark's fortes. Wienerbrød og myslibrød. Mmm Getcha someodat if you make your way to DK. 

What kinds of foods do they eat?
Sausage, sausage, and more sausage. I never knew so many kinds of sausage existed. And fiskefrikadeller! And of course, smørrebrød, those open sandwiches. They love their breads, cheese, and jam too. And made me a coffee lover. Afternoon cake and coffee... Great tradition.

What was the most surprising thing you found?
I was asked this the other day for the first time and really had to think about it. What I came up with was just how much the Danes really took advantage when the sun was out... "When the sun was out, they were too." It was lovely. 
I was also really surprised at how much English the Danes knew. Makes America look pathetic with our (lack of) second language skills. 
This isn't anything super cray but it was also surprising how much fresh produce they hadn't. I didn't expect such a good variety there!
Lastly, since my indesiveness hinders me from picking the MOST surprising, Amsterdam was quite a surprise in itself.   With its reputation I expected it to be raunchy and sketch, but it was really beautiful and clean. Way better than Vegas. (Lesson here, America? Keep the ladies indoors). 

Would you move back to Denmark?
I would love the opportunity to live in Copenhagen again. I really fell in love with it and the people I met. I've been thinking I may have changed some of my thoughts about "home" that I'd discussed in this post. For those that haven't read that one/don't remember/whatever, I had thought I discovered that no where else could really be home besides where I'm from. I talked about the history, language, and other things making foreign life seem "unfitting." But I'm not so sure now. I definitely like being close to family and friends in America (which this homesickness was probably the main reason behind that post). But after just ten months, I became much more comfortable, started learning the language and appreciated the country, culture, and people more. I had really fell in love with the city, people, lifestyle, and could really see myself living there. Of course, America, Florida, Ocala... these places will always have their place in my heart and maybe nowhere else will have the same familiarity, but that's not to say I couldn't be happy somewhere else. 
End tangent. 
But really, the beautiful image of me taking the future babe(s) for a stroll around the Lakes, enjoying the outdoor life, festivals every weekend, flowers everywhere, picnics in the park... All seems pretty enticing. But of course, it all just depends on the opportunities, money, man, family situation, etc. Ya never know! 

Comment away if you have a question I didn't include! 
Still working on getting you lovely readers' feedback. ;)
