Beskrivelse

The Danish concept of hygge is a wonderful thing. Even if most fail miserably when they try to pronounce or explain its true essence. Unless you're a Viking of course. 


As Keri stood in the departure lounge of Auckland International Airport with her four-month-old baby, searching for her flight on the board, hygge wasn't on her radar. In hindsight she agrees it probably should have been. 


But she'd never imagined a chance encounter with a Dane in a crowded bar in her home city of Wellington would lead her here, a mother, about to circle the globe, with no knowledge of when she'd return home. 


Eighteen thousand kilometres away a new life awaited her in Denmark. A country where babies sleep outside, the word for bread is seemingly impossible to pronounce and a country in which immigration challenges abound. 


A witty observer of cultural nuances, Keri reveals the day-to-day realities of a New Zealander living her best life in Denmark. From integration interrogations to rye bread misdemeanors, Nothing Like a Dane provides a humorous and heartfelt insight into creating a new life in a faraway land. 


And what did she learn? That it's not all hygge and pastries. Even in Denmark.

What a pleasure to read! Nothing Like a Dane is a very well-written memoir style book that has you laugh (sometimes out loud!), cry, cringe and wonder. Keri Bloomfield writes in a very easy-to-digest way, however with heart, wit and honesty.

The book is perfect for someone who’s planning to move to Denmark, it’s perfect for someone’s who’s already moved here - as it will make you feel you’re definitely not alone - and I even think this book should be a must-read for everyone in Denmark who has anything to do with a foreigner: Be it a partner, a friend, a colleague.

Keri’s book offers great insight into the wonderful and fascinating but at the same time confusing and overwhelming experience that it is to move to this country of hygge and unpronounceable rye bread.

Nothing Like a Dane is informative - full of side notes offering plenty of insider information about Denmark and the Danish culture - but most importantly: It’s an entertaining and heart-warming read.

If you were looking for a recommendation, here you have mine! Don’t hesitate, grab your copy of Nothing Like a Dane right now!
