In today's episode I explore Danish cultural norms and protocol using the supermarket example (and confirm it) which has gone viral around the web. What's one surefire way to piss off Danes? Watch give this episode a listen and find out.

Denmark and its residents are a fascinating group. In this video series I'll be leveraging my observations and research to share with you insights into how to get the most of your interactions with the Danes and time in Denmark regardless the duration of your visit. One day or ten years - my goal is to share observations I've made from 5+ years living, studying, and working among the Danes.

If you're Danish hopefully you'll find this series interesting, a bit informative, and not too outlandishly offensive.

If you're a foreigner coming to Denmark, I hope this helps you build upon observations and insights the rest of us had to find out the hard way.

Topics that will be covered include the Danish approach to nudity, how to make Danish friends, how to meet Danes, Danish manners, Janteloven as well as more nuanced topics such as how to apply for jobs and subtle cornerstones of Danish culture.

Stay tuned for future updates - this is just the beginning!
