How to Celebrate in Denmark | Etiquette and Cultural Misunderstandings

Tillykke med fødselsdagen! Congratulations with your birthday! That’s how you say “Happy Birthday” in Denmark. And there are certain ways to celebrate it here.

Faraway Files Travel Blog Community Linkup hosted by Oregon Girl Around the World, Suitcases and Sandcastles, Untold Morsels

Faraway Files #7


Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
– Mark Twain

This is one of my favorite quotes. Never have I ever believed it to be so true. And don’t worry, you don’t have to move all the way around the world to feel and see and understand the benefit that travel brings to your corner of the world. Just open your mind. Let your heart explore. Let’s travel together. That’s what Faraway Files Travel Blog Community is all about. Educating. Illuminating. Sparking interest.

To travel. To experience. To see. To learn.

Last week on our Faraway Files travel community linkup – we were taken many places. Shown exceptional and unique corners of the world from the beautiful perspectives of our engaged and growing travel community. There was #swoonworthy photography. Excellent writing. I was happy for the education and inspiration.

Take me somewhere this week. Show me your faraway place. Didn’t travel this week? Don’t worry. Your own backyard may be just the faraway sought by someone else. Illuminate us. Build our world garden.
