The Year of Living Danishly

'A hugely enjoyable romp through the pleasures and pitfalls of setting up home in a foreign land.'— Guardian

Given the opportunity of a new life in rural Jutland, Helen Russell discovered a startling statistic: Denmark, land of long dark winters, cured herring, Lego and pastries, was the happiest place on earth.

Keen to know their secrets, Helen gave herself a year to uncover the formula for Danish happiness.

From childcare, education, food and interior design to SAD and taxes, The Year of Living Danishly records a funny,
poignant journey, showing us what the Danes get right, what they get wrong, and how we might all live a little more Danishly

In this new edition, six years on Helen reveals how her life and family have changed, and explores how Denmark, too — or her understanding of it — has shifted. It’s a messy and flawed place, she concludes — but can still be a model for a better
way of living.

    Denmark has always been that one place that had attracted me in all ways to settle down. I feel it's a life out of a fairytale. After reading this book , I have no second thought about it. The storyline , humour and description by the writer has been done beautifully . I just couldn't stop reading. Every month was exciting and I was keen to know how one year of living danishly felt for a foreigner. wonderful book indeed
