While we were in the fjords, I learned that “cruising” gives you lots of pockets of time to read some of those books that you’ve been saving around for the pockets of time you don’t normally get. One of those that I finally got to was The Year of Living Danishly by Helen Russell. While she wrote most before she actually had children, there are definitely some good bits about what it’s like to have, raise and educate children here in Denmark. And also, her observation about being a toddler here? Spot on.
