Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a great summer. I hope that those of you who are planning to start your studies this autumn at LiU, are ready to start a new chapter in your life. A few weeks ago I travelled to Lund and Malmö. Lund is one of the most iconic and historic small towns I have visited in Sweden. It is famous for its university and the architecture of the buildings in the city was beautiful.

 

From Lund I travelled to Malmö which is the third biggest city in Sweden, and home to Scandinavia’s tallest building, the Turning Torso (which in my opinion looks like an average North American skyscraper). Malmö is diverse and had a lot of greenery and parks. Copenhagen is just a bridge away from the city. I thoroughly enjoyed this small trip after my adventures in Poland.

Now I am back home in Canada. On July 1st it was Canada Day which marks Canada’s birthday. This year the country turned 151 years old. I celebrated in the city of Oakville on Lake Ontario.

Exploring Europe

A great aspect of studying in Sweden is that you can take a cheap flight from Stockholm Skavsta Airport to pretty much anywhere in Europe during the holidays or even just for a weekend. This week I visited the city of Gdańsk in the north part of Poland. It was my first time travelling to Poland. It was definitely cheaper than Sweden, so one can enjoy eating out and leisure activities more as a student. Here are some photos of Gdańsk. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hello everyone! Here is another blog that I want to publish today. This summer has been amazing so far in Sweden. The weather has been sunny throughout May and June. This definitely made up for the long and dark winter. Here are some pictures that I took over the course of last month or so.
