The first weeks and months in a new country can be exciting yet disorienting as you adapt to your new life and surroundings. A lot of things can cause uncertainty during the first few days. For example, you might feel anxiety about your new job, or worried that you won’t be able to figure out the public transportation system; or maybe you want to find the best places to buy your groceries and understand the differences between ‘letmælk’ and ‘minimælk’.
Many internationals relocate for work, but increasing numbers are moving for other reasons. It can be incredibly challenging for those moving abroad and leaving their support networks behind to settle into a new lifestyle. The ease of integrating into new countries is also dependent on factors such as the destination location. Enter the most up-and-coming destination that is currently going through a significant rebrand – the relaxing family island of Lolland. Hailed as one of the most agriculturally rich areas in Denmark and primarily known all over Scandinavia for its delicious apples, pears, and sugar, it is now becoming known for an area on the brink of development explosion.
In this handy guide for internationals, we give you a glimpse of what to expect from your new home. The upcoming Fehmarn Belt construction, new public international school, work-life balance that Danes are famous for, business opportunities, and many other interesting articles. I think it’s pretty clear to see why Lolland is fast becoming the newest international attraction hub.
Happy settling in...
