1. organic food is usually really comparable in price to non-organic stuff, so it's actually pretty feasible to buy organic a lot of the time. denmark's a really "green" (in the sense that it's trendy and has saturated mainstream culture) country and you can get a lot of organic stuff even in the cheapest grocery stores.
2. there's no rush. people don't really seem to hurry here - they just do everything really efficiently. (with that said, i am getting faster at bagging my groceries.)
3. people care. sometimes it drives me crazy when people ask me really inane questions (does it really matter why i'm in my pajamas in the kitchen at 2 p.m. on a weekday?) but i can appreciate their taking an interest. i feel like people mean what they say (and say what they mean) a lot more here than in the united states. sometimes this comes across as being nosy or cold, but i attribute it to the lack of the false politeness that most of us americans are raised with.
4. biking everywhere.
5. and when you can't (or don't want to) bike, mass transit will take you wherever you want to go. trains and buses and subway, oh my! and it's all so easy.
6. this place is so quaint and charming and just overwhelmingly cute. i don't usually think about it anymore, but when i was at the queen's palace (amalienborg) this afternoon with a couple of friends, one of them pointed out the cut-out hearts in the guards' - well, i don't know what they are, but they look like mini outdoor closets - constructions where they walk around outside of the palace, exclaiming how cute it was. which it is, if you look.
7. attention to detail. for example, i have cabinets on my ceiling, in the space between my roof and closet.
8. danish is a really cute language. it's unique, that's for sure.
9. the snow falling outside my window.
10. the extreme weather and seasonal changes, which always provide entertainment and material for conversation.
