I moved from Australia to Denmark (like another quite well-known expat spouse) in March 2018. However, I came with my Aussie husband and baby girl. Having been lucky enough to have lived in other countries, I knew how daunting it could be moving somewhere new. So I attended my first Spouse Community event 2 weeks after arriving, and it was the best thing I could have done. Having this active, inclusive, and social community for support has been amazing and helped so much with my transition into the Danish lifestyle (and motherhood).
Considering the wonderful welcome that Spouse Community gave me when I arrived in Aarhus, I wanted to pay it forward. Therefore, as a member of the Spouse Community Board, I hope to be able to help and support others have a smooth transition into the quirky, friendly (though slightly windy) city that is now home for us all.
