Danish people don’t really have notaries and I’m not sure why, but it just is. In order to do something estate related I need some paperwork notarized. Now I have two options here: travel to the British or American Embassy in Copenhagen (which will cost a lot and is about a 3 hour train ride one way) or go to the city court and book a notary appointment (which is bizarre because it only take 30 seconds).
Package delivery is interesting. Some times they attempt to deliver and other times they might not, sort of depends on the mood of the mailman. Why is this bothersome might you ask? Well, they only ‘attempt’ delivery once and if they miss you (or pretend to miss you) you must pick up the package at the post office. Ok, still not so bad, right? Well, in a spread out somewhat hilly city with not a lot of cars it is more difficult. Also, if you live in an apartment building in which the mailman who delivers packages (who is different than the mailman on the bicycle who delivers normal mail) does not have a key to the mail area, you must wait for them to mail you a package slip.
