Denmark is one of the happiest nations on earth with some of the best quality of life. Beyond the capital and the bigger cities, Denmark offers a mix of lively towns such as Ribe and Odense plus rural countryside, medieval churches, Renaissance castles, tidy 18th-century villages, jazz festivals, the sleekest modern design you'll ever see and the people who invented Lego - who could ask for more?
I can’t describe the feeling I get when I think about my exchange. But I can tell you it’s a good one! I think that going overseas was by far the smartest thing I have ever done. I lived a totally new life which is something I couldn’t have done in Australia. I love school in Denmark. 10/10 for the Danish schools. I can’t pick one thing that was most rewarding as it was all one big adventure.
