Hi Chris- what a great post - thank you!
I often find that learning more about your new home quickly can really help alleviate Culture Shock. Taking walks around the neighborhood, finding out what shops are available, where to eat out or get your dry cleaning done. Maybe finding another expat in the area to have coffee with a few times a month and just chat about life. Going to school and learning a little bit of Danish is always good, since there you can also meet other expats going through a similar experience.
If you do not have a job, join a gym, volunteer, find a hobby or renew an interest from home, join an expat group where you can socialize with other expats. Do not alienate yourself from the Danish culture, but having a support group (most people gravitate towards other expats) is very important especially during the 1st two stages of culture shock.
I do hope that much of the information on FYI Denmark helps expats get a grip on life in Denmark and cope better with Culture Shock. Again, thank you for your input.
If you ever need a Danish friend in Sønderborg, I have an excellent Danish friend there who speaks excellent English and is quite fun. Sure she would be delighted to have coffee with you and chat about life in Sønderborg.

It's true that you don't need the passport to cross the borders but, you do need a passport to identify your self to a police officer if they ask you.
