Denmark is often listed as the happiest country in the world, despite its cold and dark winters, by the numerous contentment surveys that come out every so often. They have good reason to smile.
In addition to the highest social mobility and equality of income, Dennark has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world. So if you're earning a Danish salary, you should be able to afford to dine at one of their many Michelin starred restaurants including Noma, "the world's best restaurant", if you reserve a table a couple of years in advance.
As for the weather, the Danish attitude is epitomised by their saying, "No such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing".
