Well, hello everyone!!
First of all, I want to apologize for not being active these last couple weeks. I joined the Erasmus+ program for the spring semester 2017 and I did not have an internet access the first week and I was trying to settle in.
Well, where do I start. Since I was a child, I loved the Scandinavian countries and for some reason I always thought of them as something untouchable and will always be a dream of mine. But I guess I was wrong because I am actually at my favorite Scandinavian country, Finland.
I joined courses here for the International Business Bachelor’s Degree and I will be staying here for almost 5 months and I am so excited and ready to do it all.
I arrived at the Kajaani University of Applied Sciences on 8th of January. I must add that they whole journey was very tiring and all my muscles hurt because of the luggage weight but it was worth it.
My first impression of the campus was just one word, ‘ wow’. The drive from the airport to the campus was short and the scenery left me speechless. There’s a reason they call Finland “the land of the thousand lakes” and forest if I may add. It’s just simply beautiful.
There is a stereotype that Finnish people are a little bit ‘cold’ but I beg to differ. Everyone that I have met so far has been really friendly and helpful to me.
I haven’t really explored Finland that much yet but I still got time ahead of me.
What I did so far was to go on a walk in the forest, visit the city, settle in to the campus and went to my classes. But there’s so much more to do and I can’t wait. I will sure write a lot of blog posts about Finland later on, so get ready as well.
