Reconnecting with Danmark

Summertime in Dragoer near Copenhagen

Hi I am an Australian girl whose grandmother's family came from Jylland Denmark in the days when life was tough for a Danish peasant farmer. Language and most of the old traditions have been lost through the subsequent generations with the exception of the firm conviction that we were Danes. In 2004, I visited Danmark hoping to reconnect with my family's homeland. On arrival, I had this strange feeling of coming home. Everything I saw and felt was somehow vaguely familiar, which sounds a bit silly.However, I recognized a lot of commonalities between Danish tradition and my own likes and dislikes. Yet it is so different to Australia. The houses, landscape, even the weather in Denmark is much more to suited to my persona. The countryside has a luminescent lush shade of green I'd not seen before and the splash of bright yellow in the fields of rapeseed flowers were spectacular. A Scandinavian summer is so special with long summer nights and a cheery festive atmosphere. Winter is cool and crisp but with a feeling of freshness. Everywhere is clean neat and peaceful. The village archives are a wealth of information for geneaologists. In Copenhagen, there is shopping, history, beautiful old half-timbered houses, castles and throughout the country, museums that are highly interactive. Denmark has a special place in my heart and I would not hesitate to recommend it as a holiday destination.There is so much to discover. Perhaps we should keep it a bit of a secret or else the whole world will find out!
