Whenever you travel, you, perhaps unconsciously, ask yourself, Could I live here and be one of them? In most countries I’ve visited, I’ve been quite obviously NOT a native. I’m too tall, too fair, too American (or, to some eyes, too German) looking. One novelty of our trip to Denmark was that I “passed.” I was often mistaken for a Dane, and even when I wasn’t, everyone spoke English. Relocating to Denmark would be an easy transition on one level. But for that very reason perhaps not worth the effort.
