Seven Days Till Departure

Jan. 5, 2019.

The fifth day of the new year of 2019.

The last Saturday (7 days) before my departure to Copenhagen, Denmark.


Memories from my childhood

Jodi Benson- Part of Your World (From “The Little Mermaid”) –

Denmark – the Fairytale Kingdom

1998 – childhood

When I was little, I had the very first impression of Denmark- The Fairytale Kingdom through Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales and stories. “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, “The Nightingale”, “The Ugly Duckling”, “The Little Match Girl”, “Thumbelina” etc. are amongst my favorite stories from Andersen. Den lille havfrue (“The Little Mermaid”) was the piece my mom loved the most reading to me during the nights. Sometimes, I could even dream about swimming in the deepest ocean and playing with the mermaids.

The fairy tales I read or my mom read to me when I was young.
Andersen’s fairy tale books in Chinese (3 volumes)

Denmark – Sustainability and Environment


Shanghai World Expo was successfully held in 2010. From there, Denmark showed her charming aspects in front of the audience.

Fun Fact:
Even though I visited the Expo 10+ times and almost all the pavilions
the ONLY soveniour I bought was this...👇

The 2010 Shanghai Expo helped me learn about Denmark in a more realistic aspect. I still remember that the pavilion was a big loop on which the visitors can ride around on a bike available at the entrance, representing the actual urban life in Denmark. From then, I learned Denmark’s sustainability and effort on achieving economic growth and building a green society hand in hand.

What’s next
