About the Book

CultureShock! Denmark is the only guide you will need to live and work in this land where the people come across as being homogeneous and which has its own distinct set of rules and regulations. Find out how the Danes’ reserved nature and the welfare system affect their views on life and why they strongly believe in the idea of equality. The spirit of do-it-yourself thrives and you will learn tips on how to manage chores and other maintenance work without the assistance of tradesmen. Discover also what it is like to live in an andelsbolger, to get around by cycling and why Danish children become independent from an early age. Let CultureShock! Denmark initiate you into this beautiful land where nature thrives so you can make the most out of your stay in the country.

About the Author

Morten Strange was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1952. After graduating from the University of Aarhus in Jutland, he moved abroad to work in the petroleum industry, living in Norway, Scotland, England and Singapore. In 1986, he retired from the oil business and started his own company, photographing and writing about nature and birds. In 1993, Morten and his family moved back to Denmark, where he continued his writing and photography career. In 1999, the ‘culture shock!’ got too much for Morten, and he returned to Singapore starting a new career marketing nature books for Nature’s Niche Pte Ltd. In 2002, he married a Singaporean Chinese and they now have a beautiful little boy.
