This is one of the reasons why you really need to invest in a good bff, if you don’t already have one. J, my best friend of the last 30++ years, is currently very sick (nothing life threatening, no worries there) and I consider she would totally deserve to spend much Me-me-me time. But no… J, despite her soar throat, constant caughing and fever flashes is still thinking about me!
This afternoon, just after getting a written update about her health (phone calls have been banned for the time being, for lack of voice on the other end), I received a second email, just saying ”Interesting article in the newspaper!” with the following picture attached:
I knew I would indeed be interested the moment I spotted the flying Dannebrog (Danish flag). But I didn’t suspect what I was about to read…
Ikea (Swedish, I know… but it doesn’t matter. Especially today!) decided to throw a contest to send someone around Denmark for two weeks, seeking what makes the Danish Life one of the happiest on the planet!
You can imagine how excited this got me, right?
The winner will get an all-paid two weeks trip to Denmark. Plane tickets, an apartment in Copenhagen, food, transportation in Denmark, attraction costs… Name it! All they are asking for, is someone passionate who wants to meet Danes, get to know Denmark better, and hopefully discover the secrets behind the Danes’ happiness!
If that’s not the job for me, I wonder what could be?!?
I soooooo so so so so want to win this! I don’t even care about the money, I want to live this totally unique experience!
Oh, Ikea, if only you knew… Well, you will, soon! But unfortunately, I need to make one of these ugly presentation videos again, and I suuuuuuck at it. I am not camera shy, but I am just really bad at filming myself. It is the only thing that could come in the way…
But it is not going to stop me. Oh no!
So if you have a couple of positive, luck-filled vibes to spare, send them this way, please! Because I am preparing to show these people that nobody deserves these two dreamy weeks more than I do… I am sorry, other danophiles around the world, but that is a fact!
Oh my… This would be so much fun!
I’m so lucky to have J, always on the look-out when I am not, for these kind of things! I can’t imagine finding out about this contest after it would have been over. I would have kicked myself for missing it!
May I be a heldig kartoffel (lucky potato) come July 1st (that’s when the subscriptions to the contest will be closed).
Yup! Held og lykke (good luck) to me!!
