Atlas makes my day!

Having listened to The Year of Living Danishly in 2018, while working in my studio, and thoroughly enjoying it, I recently stumbled upon The Atlas of Happiness. Helen references her move to Scandiland. I wonder if I would try out one of these other happiness choices in a more temperate climate. Costa Rica sounds enticing and it would give reasons to become bilingual, at least conversationally.
Many visions of travel plans have been sown. Cheers!

Take my Money!!!

This book is SO inspiring & right on track with what I’ve come to expect from Helen Russell. She is amazing! What a bonus to have it narrated by her as well. From now on just assume that when she writes a new book I’m over here throwing my money at it as fast as possible:)
