When did you first visit Denmark?
Almost 20 years ago I met a blonde Danish girl in Sydney and, a year and a half after our first meeting, I moved to Scandinavia. At that time I didn’t expect to stay but we ended up living in Copenhagen for 4 years, then moved to Stockholm for 6 years until we finally settled back in Copenhagen, where we live today with our two children. The story of why I came to Denmark is that I came for love, and later I fell in love with Scandinavia and what this northern region represents.
What do you think characterizes Scandinavia?
When I think of Scandinavia I think of people living far apart, great differences in the seasons and the dominance of nature – more than half of Scandinavia is covered by forest. These days where we worry a lot about the climate, it’s reassuring to live in an area where nature plays a significant role in people’s lives and people adapt to it. What’s more, the Scandinavian people have for centuries created a life where you focus on ‘the little moments’ in the everyday life. It’s a way of living that creates a sense of joy and wellbeing, that activates you to be in the present. Read the full interview here.
