The ‘happy place’
You’ll find a sign at every ‘happy place’ with a description of what will make you happy at this spot. The place itself is an important part of the happiness experience. All the signs at the ‘happy places’ will mention a local business you can visit to ask for a golden happiness tip. There you will receive the tip in an envelope handed over with a secret smile. The golden happiness tips only appear on the happiness signs.
Discover the ‘happy places’ by GPS
You can also discover the ‘happy places’ by means of geocaches. A geocache is a sort of ‘treasure’ you can find by using GPS. A link to more information about the geocache hidden there can be found at each ‘happy place’.
