The Happiest, Part Two

On International Happy Day I wrote with excitement about the fact that Adam and I were going to be visiting the top happiest places in the world. Denmark holding the number 1 spot. After spending a mere four days in Denmark I think I’ve figured it out. The key to happiness and why Denmark has […]
