I LOVE the efficiency of the Danish postal system. No matter where you are in Denmark, if you mail a letter one day (that means have it to the post office before 8pm), it will be at its destination in Denmark THE NEXT DAY... ALWAYS. I know the country is not THAT big, but to think that you can mail a letter ACROSS THE COUNTRY in less than 24 hours.... that is just amazing!
I wonder if it because our mailmen/women deliver the mail on bikes? (Because I can actually BIKE to work FASTER than DRIVE... makes sense, right?!)
You get what you pay for and you pay for what you get, right?
Well when I moved here in 2008, a normal first-class stamp was 5.50kr (a little more than $1 each). I will no longer complain when the US Postal System raises their prices a NICKEL because in these three years, the Danish Postal Service has raised theirs just a BIT more... One first class stamp now costs you 8.00kr... ($1.60) to mail ONE LETTER! So I guess my like is only possible with my dislike... The ultimate compromise.
