The Worktrotter's Guide to Denmark

I received a lot of helpful advice, information and materials in order to write this book. I would like to thank everyone involved for this support.

Many expats have told me about their experiences in Denmark, which has helped me provide a more complete picture. Moreover, a number of Danes have provided assistance with expert knowledge and detailed descriptions ensuring that the information provided is factual and accurate.

I would like to personally thank the following:

Many of the “Saving Tips“ in Chapter 17 derive from the knowledge of Charlotte McKay (USA) and her friends. The “Safety Tips“ in Chapter 18 I owe to Fiona Thomas (Great Britain), President of the Ladies International Network København (LINK).
I thank them both for their generousity and making this valuable information available to a larger audience.
I’d like to thank Dan Langlois (Canada) and Emily Clark (USA) for their support in providing high quality feedback.

A special thanks goes to James Bonham of jfb Webdesign (LA) http://www.jfbonham.com for his excellent work on the Worktrotter website and to Laura Stadler-Jensen (LB) www.laura.stadler.com, the editor of this guide, for her good
quality work.
I am especially thankful to Casper Tybjerg and “Sund og Bælt” for the picture on the cover of the guide, as well as to Mikael Colville-Andersen / Copenhagen Cycle Chic, and the companies Jyske Bank, Eva Solo and Velux for the pictures supplied.

A big thank you goes to Erwin M. Schmidt for his advice and his links to potential helpers and to Klaus Schmidt for his support with logistical aspects.

Above all, I wish to thank my “Danish prince“, Lars Jordt, who has always supported me with great ideas, vast knowledge and loving patience.
