AS I SAT on the long train ride back from a meeting in Copenhagen yesterday, I reflected on this issue of The International. As I do every issue I try to find a way of condensing 32 pages of interesting, exciting content into my short Editor's message. Not an easy task, that's for sure! As I sat on the STrain, I looked out of the window and marvelled at how beautiful Denmark is, and how happy families were together on their way to the beach, shopping or to a Sankt Hans bonfire. I believe our July issue encompasses that feeling of holidays and all that goes with it. So, on that note let's start with the many events around Denmark. We are certainly spoilt for choice, and we had to be very selective as there is simply just so much going on (page 3-6) from festivals and concerts taking place all over Denmark, to performances at castles and car shows. So, take a look, and keep your eye on social media as we take the overspill of events digitally! What's ringing true in this issue is how widespread The International is becoming. We welcome a new writer Hakan Jakob Kosar from Move North, a local of Frederikshavn. Hakan is going to introduce us for the next couple of issues to this beautiful northeast coast of the Jut-

land peninsula. Haka will introduce us to local internationals who have made a career move to this most northern coastal town be sure to follow what they are up to on social media too @movenorth. Our feature story this issue is Marin, a

successful young entrepeneur who is making his mark in Denmark. It's quite a journey, so make sure whilst sitting on the beach you read his story (page 8-11). I, personally, have enjoyed my own fun travels, and got to spend time with family in the UK on a road trip. For our internationals who would like to discover closer destinations, and aren't travelling thousands of kilometers to go home, why not try a quick getaway. This issue we visit the beautiful Coventry. Come discover the UK over the next two issues with us (page 7). Big topic amongst international is retention of talented people in Denmark. Cathy tackles this issue head on. Great article, love to hear your own personal experiences about this (page 22). The weather is sunny here today at The International headquarters. So, I'm going to sign off for today, wish you all once again a wonderful summer with your family and friends, and congratulations to all students receiving their caps this week! Watch out for those student buses!
