By day, I work in IT Finance. By night, I eat, drink, and do everything I can to embrace the infamous hygge. A New York transplant arriving in Copenhagen in March 2011, I consider it my moral obligation to navigate, sometimes with reckless abandon, this amazing and ground-breaking foodie scene we've got here. And then? Well, obviously I'll write about it.

I was born with a traveller’s suitcase in my hand. I am from Armenia, an ancient land of amazing beauty and big-hearted people. A few years ago a courageous Dane stole me over and after two weddings and two years of fabulous adventures in China and Germany, here we are settled in the fairy-tale country of Denmark. In September 2012 I am going back to the books and starting my Masters at DTU. Staying true to the travel spirit I work at Everplaces, where we build a tool for travellers. From my homebase in Copenhagen I am onto exploring the beautiful gems and curious traditions this land holds.

A wannabe-Copenhagener-real-New Yorker's perspective on cycling culture in New York City and what the Big Apple can learn from spending time riding rapt over the bridges of the Danish capital. Biking across the harbors of King Christian IV may be just what the City's citizenry should experience in order to see that simply riding a bicycle is all the American metropolis needs to do to upgrade its stagnant transit system.

Sharing my knowledge with the others will add value to my path but also to other's paths. This is the goal that I'm trying to reach, so just jump aboard on my DRAKKAR(t).

After a six month exchange jaunt in Århus in 2011, I've made my way back on the arm of a gentleman and in the pursuit of hygge. In this city I fill my days riding around on a rusty bicycle, observing the seasons change and drinking an obscene amount of coffee. I enjoy taking photos, writing shy poems and telling lies to drunk men in bars. This blog is where I share our adventures and shenanigans as we drink, dance, eat and cycle through the streets Århus.
Brought together by faith - Camila and Andrea came to Denmark to share one great passion: getting to know other cultures! And yes, as good Brazilians, they talk a lot, laugh out loud, take millions of pictures and love to share this with everyone! That's where they came up with the idea of this blog! A place to share their views about Denmark with others who are also living here, Danes and expats alike! They hope to understand a little bit more about this country, its people, and culture through this photo project.

Short and brunette migrant from sunny Italy. Can a person like this survive to Denmark? Daniela: an ugly duckling in Blonde&Tall-land, is trying to find the essence of “being Danish” and will write down her perplexities and discoveries about Danish culture and behaviours. Student of Journalism, she has found herself tied up to Aarhus, and moved again in this town to take a MA, after having lived in here 8 months in 2011. This time she looks to the city with the eyes of a citizen, but still feeling as a foreigner. Cause, she misses real pizza sometimes.
Hello everyone, my name is Laurette. I am French. I have had a passion for Copenhagen and Danish culture since summer 2008. I visited the city and literally fell in love with it. Curious about different lifestyles and always eager to meet new people , I enjoy being an expatriate in Copenhagen everyday. With this blog, I intend to share my perspective on the city, its inhabitants and give you an insight of Danish culture. I love Art, music, style, architecture and design.

Came to Denmark in 2007 with my Danish wife, after living in England for a number of years, (you can take the woman out of Aathus but you cannot take Aarhus out of the woman!). After a career helping people and organisations to manage change, I decided to turn those skills and that experience to helping other expats and international better manage their own transition to life in Denmark, and recently started my own business. When I'm not doing that I let my Dansk-Svensk Gårdshund take me for long walks, contribute to the development of Aarhus International Rotary Club and apologise to everyone that my Danish is still so bad after being here for so long.

A Swiss journalism student came to Denmark and did not want to leave it anymore – let's see for how long that plan works out. Living in Copenhagen and experiencing the Danish way of life with all its fun, winter depression, beautiful summer and adventures. A good mood writer and fun-loving shot of opend-mindedness Swissness that can be seen sitting around Copenhagens cafés, benches or parks writing in her notebook or observing the Danish way of well-being.
An ordinary 25 year old guy, I am currently deputed in Aarhus, Denmark by my employer in order to engage and work more closely with our Danish client. This is the first time I have traveled outside my home country, India. Since landing at Kastrup Airport in Copenhagen, its not so much that this country has impressed me, in fact Denmark is as I expected it to be, like any other developed western nation. Rather its the Danes themselves and their way of life that has left me enchanted. After a few months here, I was almost on the verge of concluding that the Danish society is the perfect one, an Utopia in itself. However, sometimes I do have questions in my mind, is it really so ? I will write about my experiences here as well as try to give a glimpse into the Danish workplace (working in one where half of my colleagues are Danes)
I am living "the life" as it is given and enjoy the process of approaching unlimited freedom as well as the present moment. I want to experience the full scale of what the concept of love and desire may imply as life does total worthy of whatever my hearts desire. Never settle for second not now not never. I sometimes stuff my self with intensive learning program and sometimes do totally nothing. I like in particular subjects as economics, sociology, philosophy, art, Alternative/electro music. I enjoy to be around people with self-dicipling, playing on higher level. Passionate, ambitious, creative and loving.I will treat you with respect, give credit and add value to friendship if you appreciate.

I am a Copenhagener reporting from the city’s busy bicycle lanes. My bike is made for riding, and I ride all over the place, jumping off at spots for practical reasons or to take in upper and underground city culture. Half my life I have cycled in this city. I do not wear a helmet and I have not fixed a single puncture but I know where it can be done with a smile. Follow me and you too will find out the best way to move around in Copenhagen is by bike, not because you can. Because you love it.
I moved to Copenhagen from London in spring 2010 with my Danish partner, and found Denmark to be a fascinating place full of contradictions. In September I started sharing my impressions of Denmark in a blog on Berlingske Tidende (http://shahar.blogs.berlingske.dk) which later moved to Politiken (http://blog.politiken.dk/shahar). I try to use humour to explore Danish culture and the country's relationship with foreign professionals.
My Copenhagen is about my journey and the adventures I am experiencing whilst living in a new city. I am an Australian who moved to London seven years ago and fell in love with the city almost instantly. I loved exploring and discovering my now favourite places to eat, read, meet friends and spend time on my own. Now I am embarking on a new career which finds me in Copenhagen.

Stine Nørgaard Lykkebo
One metropolis + one Danish girl = a lot of perspectives on Danish culture and history. The metropolis is currently Paris. The Danish girl’s name is Stine. And the perspectives will be on art, design and fashion – always with a Danish and historical point of view... and maybe a little Parisian one.

Student, mum, art-communicator and culture-craver. Born and raised in Copenhagen and has not lived outside the city apart from a brief stay in London (where I missed my bicycle, rye bread and the familiarity of never getting lost). Married to a Brit which is why i tell myself I have a broader perspective on what it means to be Danish.
Freelance journalist from the Netherlands and Scandinavian correspondent. I have been living in Denmark for 15 years and I feel quite at home here. But I am still sometimes astonished, amazed and bewildered by Danish traditions, customs and habits. Or frustrated because I feel homesick, lonely and rootless.
Part time editor, part time model, full time fashion lover. Half Jordanian, a quarter Romanian and a quarter Hungarian, Linda grew up in Romania and Jordan, with her family spread across the globe.
