We just came back from a vacation on the island of Bornholm ( a fairly remote island in the Baltic Sea )

I'll do a full photothread at some point, but until then here's a taste:

Dueodde Strand - Bornholm Island


Rønne - Bornholm Island


Hammershus castle ruins ( anno 1200 ) - Bornholm Island


European Bison - Bornholm Island
( the Bison was reintroduced to Bornholm in 2012 as a test for possible further reintroduction elsewhere and it has so far been a huge success, hopefully paving the way for Bison to be released in the rest of the Kingdom )


Gudhjem - Bornholm Island

Cars are taxed based on emissions and safety so a Porsche is not a cheap car..
But wages are fair here ( the hourly income is around twice the US ), so if people want one I'd say all with full time occupation who wants one can buy one - the price is after all only a fraction of the cost of a home.. and one can always lease if owning isn't important..


But a thing to notice about the Danish culture is that flashing wealth isn't looked upon favorable.. all spending that makes sense and is logic is liked, but those who buy needlessly expensive items just to flash wealth is looked down upon, just as those who tries to present themselves as more important than others.. ( same goes with houses )
Cars very much illustrates this, as people buy cars based on needs here, not to flash success or wealth..
Danes typically spend on kitchens and clothing and sensible stuff like that

The speedlimit being 130km/h on the freeway means that even the cheapest car can reach the speedlimit, so a supercar doesn't make you get anywhere faster - all it does is consume more gas and take a larger chuck of your wallet.. and that isn't what the Danish consumer are looking for..

But there are people who like fast cars, typically immigrants ( I for example have a Thai mate with a supercar despite a low income ) - just as there are those who like super bikes and other stuff that makes most people shake their heads.. it's just not very common..

So cars here are typically small but still sits 4 people comfortable, they have room for groceries but are still easy to park and fit in the old city streets that typically predates the car..


Personally I drive this little Ford.. at 3 months pay and for 2 people living in Copenhagen that made a lot of sense to me and still does

( note: the photo is taken in Norway, not Denmark! )

Finally looked through this entire thread for the first time - really great stuff. My recent trip to Copenhagen was one of my favourite of all time and I can't wait to make it back. Have about 1,500kr leftover that I didn't bother exchanging as an incentive to go again!
