Mooroo in Denmark is giving us major wanderlust
Who doesn’t love the idea of going to amazing places in the world and having the time of your life? I mean, we all do want that. With a tight budget and ‘brown-girl-permission-problem’ issues, the only thing I could do to sate my wanderlust was to look at travel vlogs and videos. So I came across our very own Mooroo’s latest vlog about his latest travels. Mooroo had an awesome trip to Copenhagen, Denmark and now I want to go there too.
Mooroo went to Denmark and he just explained why he went to this country in the first place
Followed by a catchy tune, Mooroo explained how Imran Khan wanted to make Pakistan a welfare state and now he was in Copenhagen, one of the most successful welfare states of the world, to understand the social concept of welfare states.
They also express that they felt as if the people in that world belong to 200 years ahead in time.
He went on to explain how a state can take care of its people by facilitating them and establishing equality through taxes that consumed around 35-55% of the salaries of its citizens.
Mooroo then proceeds to throw in a ‘Disney’ fact
Disney took inspiration for its Disneyland from Copenhagen and now I want to visit this city even more!
He then went on showing and telling us about his hair, His ride pass, This statue of a ‘serious’ man and Tivoli!
Tivoli, the biggest tourist attraction of Denmark, is older than the constitution of Denmark and allows the visitors to take back with them thrilling experiences and joy.
Mooroo, after a, what seemed like super fun, ride decided he had enough for the day and headed home after a dinner.
The next day for Mooroo in Denmark was about discovering Danish people’s love for bicycles
The next day, much to Mooroo’s surprise, He discovered that people of Denmark preferred bicycles over other means of transportation and there was a bicycle for every type of need! *niiiiiccceee*
He also went on to explain what was the special feature in women’s bicycle and then proceeded to get himself one too.
And, They all also came up with ‘Cycle Chalao, Pakistan ko Bachao’ and it does seem super logical and ideal too.
Also our co-founder Ali Gul made a special appearance with Mooroo in Denmark

Mooroo also managed to get in touch with the CEO of Happiness Research Institute and showed us other positive sides of Denmark
A Happiness Research Institue? Yep, It’s real. Denmark, on the happiness index, happens to be placed at the solid number two! With questions about ‘happiness’, Mooroo got in touch with CEO of Happiness Research Institute who explained that they were working to find the scientific reasoning of happiness to promote it within the society and also trying to figure out why some people are comparatively ‘happier’ as compared to the rest.
Moving forward, Mooroo showed his viewers the green energy present in Denmark. They also explained how the people of Demark began focusing on Environmental factors around 50 years ago and had thus voted out the nuclear power projects and instead, relied on renewable sources.
The vlog also complimented modern, minimal and functional Danish architecture that focused on 50,00 years ahead in the future. They also talked about the Danish concept of Retrograding which established efficiency in their ancient and old buildings.
Finally came what we actually travel for… FOOD
Mooroo, through the vlog, let his viewers have the ‘behind the curtain’ experience of restaurant and how and why the products and food is prepared and saved in their particular ways. He also exclaimed that the prices of the food were high and he had spent 3900 on just two shwarmas! Yeah, you heard it right…Three thousand and nine hundred rupees only!
Mooroo ended this awesome vlog by riding off on his bike…And now I miss this place that I haven’t even been to.
