About the Author
Melanie Haynes is a relocation consultant, blogger and writer based in Copenhagen, where she has lived for the last nine years (with a character-building eighteen months in Berlin).

She regularly writes about expat life in Denmark in The Local Denmark and the Huffington Post as well as on her popular blog, Dejlige Days. She has also appeared in the press including the Guardian and The Sunday Times and also in the Danish media talking about life as a seasoned expat in the Danish capital. She lives with her husband and son close to the beach in Copenhagen.

Firstly, the fact that the author was given the free services of not one but two relocation consultants for her relocations is amazing in and of itself - but to claim that the German consultant was horrible because they showed her homes she didn't like and made her walk around in 30 degree celsius weather? Or to say she felt homeless because they had to rent a crappy temporary apartment - a guaranteed roof over their heads - until they could find a house? That she was upset that Germans should try to accommodate foreigners by learning English? That Germans (in BERLIN) are probably xenophobic because she had to give up her aspirations of living in a "popular" area of the city and settle into an old East German neighbourhood where a grocery store isn't right at her feet? That she had to pay for laundry with tokens? Oh the absolute horror.
I spent most of my wasted 45 minutes reading this waste of money cringing. Is she absolutely positive she's not American?
Nothing in this book told me things I didn't already know, as an expat, or included any information that would have been helpful to me before I was planning my own move. This is supposed to be a guide to a "successful relocation" but it seems to me to be more like a guide to being the biggest expat snob of them all.Read more ›
