Do you believe in fairy tales? 🧚♀️ We do, and we have a story for you!
A Norwegian girl arrives in Copenhagen on a day with sunshine. The joy of anticipation is finally over, and she can’t believe she has actually moved from “suburban” Stavanger, to this much bigger city. What will this Copenhagen future bring? Will she stay only for the school years, and then return to her mother country? Or will she settle? At this point there is nothing decided yet – the future is bright open
First stop is Nyhavn, on her very first evening, together with fellow Norwegian students. And she loves it.
With a bachelor degree in economics from CBS (Copenhagen Business School) in her suitcase, she feels the urge to double check: Do I really want to continue living in Copenhagen – really settle? Or… what would it be like to go back to Norway and my hometown?
She had changed! She was not the same girl any more, crossing The North Sea 5 years ago.
So, after spending a year in her hometown, she had to go back and continue her Copenhagen journey.
And when the airplane wheels hit the Danish soil, she knew: This is my home.
And so it became. Her home.
