My name is Melanie. I am from the UK but I have lived in Copenhagen for over eight years (with a short spell in Berlin in 2011). If you want to know a bit more about me here are my *40 facts about me*.
I share my thoughts on the uniques aspects of life in Copenhagen – trust, making friends with Danes, cycle helmets, parenting, school uniforms, lunch culture, choice – as well as insider tips of places to go and great places to get a coffee. There is more to Copenhagen than the Little Mermaid (although she is quite special) and I hope I show that here. This is a positive space, I share some personal stuff but the focus is always about life here and how to enjoy it – quirks and all. These are two popular posts on this – Becoming Danish and tips on enjoying life in Denmark.
I am currently a contributor at the Huffington Post and I regularly write for The Local Denmark. Previously I have written for a number of popular online and print publications such as The Simple Things, Museum Diary and Luvaville.
I am also working on my first book about how to create a positive relocation experience.
I am also very active on social media (who isn’t these days?) and you can follow me on Instagram (to see daily life here), Twitter (where I mainly tweet about things related to Scandi life), Facebook (for blog updates) and Pinterest (for just pretty stuff)!

I hope you enjoy what you read here on my blog, I certainly enjoy sharing it!
