Where did you live and what are your origin if I may ask?

( certainly nothing wrong in not liking a place )

I am my self from Lithuania and i worked in rural places in midtjylland. I guess the shitty job and lack of social life were the biggest problems. I was also very frustrated that i could not afford to buy my own house or apartment. But i am now taking training in my country and when done i hope to come back to Denmark and find a better job with a better pay.

Okay - yeah I can imaging the agricultural field isn't always the most rewarding place to work in these days of competition and open labour market affecting wages and putting presure on the workers productivity.. and rural parts of Jutland is not exactly the most stimulating of places, certainly not doing the grey dull winter months..
( if you return and transportation isn't too much of an issue a rental apartment in the outskirts of the larger cities shouldn't be too pricey ( unless it's close to a university where demands are crazy ) - and most larger cities should also have a Baltic community for friends and networking..

Regarding wages make sure you are in a good union ( I believe 3F covers the agricultural sector ) and that you are always paid the wage and given the freedom and rights you are entitled to ( if in doubt let the union look through your contract and lønseddel ) - there have sadly been cases where both companies as well as local farmers have exploited foreign workers and that should NEVER be accepted, nor should they get away with it!

Is it just me or Denmark looks like Sweden? What makes Denmark different from Sweden? I'm just curious. Beautiful cities though!

The southernmost part of Sweden is flat and nature there looks like in Denmark, also the architecture in swedish cities like Halmstad, Lund and Ystad looks somewhat danish or even north german. Half timbered buildings are only common in the very south part of Sweden.

Denmark is more densely populated than Sweden and it's remarkably more expensive. Politically danes are more nationalistic and conservative.

Denmark is a country you can pass through in one day. Denmark is more "continental" in my eyes with more outdoor cafés and pubs. Bicycling is very popular and people drive smaller cars than in Sweden.

This year I visited Praestö, which is a very quaint town in southern Zealand.

I'm surprised with one information you gave: Copenhagen is less dense than Los Angeles - never imagined that. Thanks for bringing these informations and images
