The Happiest Place on Earth…no, it’s not disneyland

I’ve always loved this plaque at Disneyland…and it seemed appropriate for this Copenhagen adventure!

When you read this I will already be in The Happiest Place on Earth, Copenhagen. The 4th Annual World Happiness Report uses a number of factors to determine their rankings and I’m looking forward to experiencing and contemplating the reason for their happiness.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Walt Disney used Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen as part of his inspiration for Disneyland…our version of the happiest place on earth. It’s just taken awhile for the rest of the world to catch up with his secret.

In addition to the storybook charm, cobblestone streets, pretty canals and amazing food that I’m so looking forward to experiencing in this happiest place, I am lucky enough to also be participating in the World Rowing Masters Regatta on Lake Bagsvaerd (try to pronounce that one!) I will be coxing for a composite team made up of members from my club, Newport Aquatic Center, and Long Beach Rowing, as well as two international teams that I’ve never met. Beyond excited for the adventure!

And if that wasn’t enough, according to the study, one of the happiest groups in Copenhagen are those over the age of 50…so this should be a pretty amazing trip for me! Win-Win!!

I look forward to sharing everything Copenhagen upon my return!

You cannot direct the wind, but you can adjust the sails!
