We asked people living in Denmark to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"Should have left behind my food Processor (We found out that with the electrical conversion from the U.S., some appliances like food processors need more than just a standard converter. We would need to get a converter that is about $100 to use this appliance) Should have brought Cold/flu medicines, cough drops and cough syrup -- these are not available except by prescription in Denmark. (Editor's Note: Always make sure you research the legal implications of bringing ANY medications into a foreign country)," said another expat in Copenhagen, Denmark.

"When moving to Denmark, it is important to pack warm clothing, as the climate is generally cool. It is also a good idea to bring a raincoat and umbrella, as the weather can be unpredictable. Additionally, it is recommended to bring a few items of comfortable, casual clothing, as this is the most common style of dress in Denmark. It is also important to bring any necessary documents, such as a passport, visa, and any other paperwork required for the move. Finally, it is a good idea to bring a few items to make the new home feel more comfortable, such as pictures, books, and other personal items," wrote a member who made the move to Denmark.
