Reading Odd Girl Out and being on the Autism Spectrum

Travel diaries: Birthday in Copenhagen

I’ve spent this past year reading books about Denmark: The Little Book of Hygge and The Little Book of Lykke by Meik Wiking, The Year of Living Danishly by Helen Russell and The Almost Nearly Perfect People by Michael Booth, so it came as no surprise when I told my partner I wanted to spend my birthday week in Copenhagen. I’ve wanted to visit Denmark for a while now, and turning 28 seemed like the perfect occasion.
