New members of the Denmark forum, introduce yourselves here - 2018

Hi all,

Newbie on the Denmark forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Denmark if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Hi, my name is David and In 1969 I came to Copenhage on the USS Wasp, a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier. The first night in port a shipmate and myself met two beautiful ladies. We first went to Tivoli Gardens and then we split from the other couple and we went dancing. I had 3 days with this wonderful lady but it had to come to an end, the last night in port I had to stay aboard ship. I was surprised to learn that this wonderful lady had stopped sailors returning to the ship until she found one that knew me, and she sent me a gift with him.

I know that this is a long shot but I just have to give it try.

Hi David

Only expats looking for advice are consulting this home page why I think you shall try either Ekstrabladet or BT (two tabloid papers).

Hej! Jeg hedder Charlotte. Jeg er fra England og jeg bor i Danmark.
Hi! I'm Charlotte. I'm from England and I live in Denmark.

I moved here late last year and I love it! Moved to be with the love of my life (and his dog and cat!) and haven't looked back since.

Thought I may as well sign up here, as it can be hard being the only British one around in the local community I live in. Starting my Danish lessons from this evening, I am very excited :)

Det er dejligt at møde dig!
It is lovely to meet you!

Hi I’m Beth, I want to move in with my boyfriend in Denmark, but have no idea where to start. I don’t have any higher education as I trained privately and became a self employed milliner (hat maker) in the uk. I don’t speak more than two words of danish yet and don’t know anyone apart from my boyfriend. I would love to use my skills at sewing, and jewellery making here.

Hey all,

I'm John. Moved here from Johannesburg South Africa 3 weeks ago.

My wife and daughter will be joining me in December. The transition has been pleasant to date, despite not being able to converse fluently in Danish yet.

Planning however took more than 6 months. :)

Most people I meet are very friendly and helpful, even when asking for just directions on the metro stations. I also work in IT, so working language is mostly English.

Looking forward to building a new fruitful experience here.

The admin required to register and get your tax sorted out was a bit tedious, but I somehow survived.

Good luck to all.
