Planning on moving to Denmark, anybody want to help?
An Australian moving to Denmark? How unusual!
Care to let us in on why?
Maybe you can give the Danish part of FFNordic a shot in the arm... Thus bringing us that much closer to four active Nordic regions!
Hmmm, don't bring any aliens or something.
Aliens? Why is he likely to bring aliens?
If they are nice, he's welcome to bring them...
Aliens are cool... bring 'em all!
Be carefull what you wish for.
Well, I live with someone who must be classified as an extra terrestial anywhere..!
He's just darling!
Dragons arenÂ´t extra terrestial.. or?
No dragons are just mythical creatures.
Maybe we should try to keep this on topic.
Grieyls, just tell us when you are moving and we can have a big housewarming-party.
Well, I was working on a six month plan, however things seem to have gone by the way side in that process. Needless to say I need to apply for the permits first, otherwise I can only stay there for three months top, then I have to get the permits to work there, and that's another kettle of fish. Well as of yet I don't have a definate date for you at this stage, but I'm hoping it will happen soon, I just can't say when yet.
Is this or Dum dadaaaaaaaaa! real?
You bet it is, oh and stop following me around you scally wag.
What? It's not my fault that I have nothing better to do then rumage through your acount looking for post entitled Dum Dadaaaaaaaaa!
I doubt that very much.
Well, you are going to be moving to the most wondefuld country of scandinavia(take that sweden). Two nice places to live is Aarhus or Copenhagen, but it's hard to find a nice place to live.
Be living in Copenhagen if I can help it, as I have family there. Holte be even closer, not to worry I got my cousins hubby helping me with that, although I might need a go between untill I can get established.
Grieyls, have you visited Denmark before?
I highly recommend that if you have never been there, that you go visit for an extended period of time.
Also have you been there during the winter?
I think the nights are very long there, and the weather can be nasty.
Prices are high in Denmark as they are in Norway and Sweden (although it seems that alcohol is cheapest in Denmark). If I am not mistaken Australia is also quite expensive, so you may not notice as much.
Do you speak any Danish? Although there are many people in Denmark that speak English, it helps if you speak their language, if nothing else, just out of courtesy and respect.
There is an interesting series of books you may want to look into called "Culture Shock!" and they compare different customs, and different legalities to the way they are here in the US. Though it is US-centric it can help you with a thorough to-do list.
One last remark for any Aussie moving to the home of Hamlet, There are absolutely no Orange Kangaroos in Denmark
Yep, I have been there before and it was during the winter, so yeah I know the nights are long. Was fun actually, found it quite interesting that it was dark at four in the afternoon, and sun did not come up till eight or nine in the morning.
Anyway, as for the language have been working on it, but finding it a little hard, I'm hoping that once I am there I will pick it up so much quicker as I will be hearing it all the time.
Denmark is just flat, at least the rest of Scandinavia has some mountains.
Aha! Then you won't mind if I ski on them.
The mountains are there for the skiing.
Really? I thought they were there because Teutonic plate movements.
No that theory is just our little way of fooling the non-Scandinavian people in the world.
Hmm, have you seen that the official pub as opened in Ireland again, G?
It has? Oh boy, oh boy.
But don't let the aliens in!
