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.

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.

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.

Maria Vittoria Ceschi
I'm an italian girl, studying Economics in Milan. And I'm getting the chance to spend three months in Copenhagen for an Internship program in a small company run by artists. That's why I decided to take advantage from this experience to explore Denmark and scribble something of my "discoveries" in my blog. 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.

22 year-old with an egyptian background. I study mechanical engineering at the Technical Univesity of Denmark. I was born in Copenhagen, Denmark. My famliy and I moved to Egypt when I was 9 years old; and we've lived there for about 6 years.

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.

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.
Let me introduce you to: the top of the pop, the fly in the soup, the shrimp in the shrimp cream crease, the lady of the gig: MAJA HALD. That’s me. I’m a young and naïve Dane, who is a big fan of a lot of things, among other pancakes and Mikael Simpson. I know how to fold a paper hat and the dance move “the worm”. I will use all my superpowers to paint a picture of my Denmark and I eagerly receive tips about interesting people, sites and events: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
