At the start of my travels, I read ‘The little book of Lykke’ by Meik Wiking 4th Book review: ‘The Little Book of LYKKE: The Danish search for the World’s Happiest People’ by Meik Wiking which I loved and got a lot of ideas from. I was especially excited to see that the Happiness Research Institute was in Copenhagen which was already in my travel plans for December. On getting in touch with the Institute, an email correspondence started with Alexander and at the beginning there was a possibility of me visiting and getting an interview whilst I was in Copenhagen. Unfortunately, my time in Copenhagen coincided with a heavy workload for the team, however Alexander kindly accepted to do an interview about his work via email. Read on to learn more.

This year’s Black Friday was a good one. Pieter and I managed to snatch a bigger and, more important, better television and I bought a couple of books for myself. In this haul I will give you the blurbs of these books, plus the blurbs of one I got to review!

The Danish search for the world’s happiest people… Was a huge dissapointment in comparison to Hygge. I didn’t liked it at all, I was expecting danish people to come and speak about what makes them happy and about their passions but Lykke wasn’t this… It was the little book of happiness statistics… Stats over stats over stats on which country is the […]

This is a picture of the Dentelles de Montmirail. I particularly enjoy “wiking.” Not a walk, not a hike. And not to be confused with what my friend Felecia calls “wogging.” There happens to be a great wike right up there in the Dentelles. Probably a few – but we’ve only done one. It is […]
We have these /comfy/ threads on /r9k/, I’m sure most of you already know what I’m talking about. To the one or two who don’t though, essentially people will post art/ photos, music, and tell little anecdotes that in one way or another have this common feeling of “comfy” linking them all together. Of course […]
