Denmark – Five Recommended Expat Blogs

Monday April 27, 2015 (21:05:32)


At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at Denmark and some of the bloggers who write about living there.

The Copenhagen Tales

This is a really useful blog written by Laura, a German girl living in Denmark. Her passion for food and good coffee can be seen throughout the site, and it's a really useful place to discover nice cafes, clubs and good restaurants around the city! The Copenhagen Tales features beautiful pictures and combines her personal impressions about Copenhagen with general information about the city and surroundings. If you're already living in Denmark and wanting to find a good place for a weekend break, take a look at Laura's tips – there are recommendations to help you enjoy every moment of your trip.

Our House in Aarhus

This is a wonderful blog by Allison, an American expat who moved to Denmark in 2013 with her husband and lives in Aarhus with the latest addition to the family, her baby boy Oscar. Our House in Aarhus mainly highlights the differences between American and Danish culture and traditions, but it also gives practical information about Denmark and how to deal with its bureaucracy. Allison recently had a baby, so there are different posts about pregnancy and how things work in the hospital in Denmark: what you have to bring with you, how to request a good doctor, and information about choosing a hospital. Everything is accompanied by beautiful pictures of this lovely couple and their little one. Enjoy the reading and take notes!

Natalia's Blog

Natalia tells the story of her life as an expat in Denmark in an open and honest way, and reading her blog will soon feel like talking to a friend. How difficult is it to be far from home, to miss the birthday of your best friend, a party, a dinner, a reunion or simply a regular day at home? Sometimes you just miss a day of eating your mum's food. Being homesick is a common feeling when you live abroad, but in a new place there's a lot to discover and new friends are waiting for you around the corner. Natalia will make you feel like moving to Denmark is doable even if it's a bit daunting – you'll soon be hooked on this blog of a self-confessed “atypical Mediterranean married to a Viking”.

Blackgirl on Mars

Blackgirl on Mars is an eclectic blog written by an American expat living in Copenhagen. Covering art exhibitions, local events, interesting talks and much more, the blog features photos and videos to help you to see the city through the blogger's eyes. As well as local tips, Blackgirl on Mars features social commentary about life as a black woman in Europe, and is a must-read for anyone who's interested in human interaction and its many complex intricacies.

Scandinavia Standard

A well put together blog with a minimalist theme and some beautiful pictures illustrating each post, Scandinavia Standard pulls together tips and information about being an expat in Scandinavia. From the best local magazines, to urban planning in Copenhagen and how to do Danish Easter lunch, this blog is both informative and easy to read. If you've been thinking about moving to Scandinavia for a while but aren't sure which country would best suit you, this is a great place to start your research.

Those are our recommended expat blogs for today. Do you write about being an expat? Let us know in the comments!
