I’m a little late posting this but I went to Finland a couple weeks ago! It was amazing! I was able to check off several things on my bucket list in about four days. I went ice fishing (I didn’t catch anything), drove a sleigh pulled by reindeer, drove a snowmobile, went to the arctic circle, saw the real santa clause, rode on and steered a dog sled pulled by six huskies, saw the northern lights, played in snow up to my waist, and used snowshoes to walk in the waist deep snow! It. Was. Amazing.
After I got back I was a little sad because of the lack of snow, but luckily it snowed a ton in Jonkoping for a few days! I was a nice transition back. I’m basically done with classes for the first half of the semester, I finished my project presentation this morning and I have my final exam on the 19th. That’s quite a gap so naturally I decided to spend my time in London!
I’m actually writing this on the bus to the airport. I’m going to be spending a week in London visiting two of my friends from home. One of them is an exchange student like me and the other actually goes to school there. I’ll be spending the weekend in Bath and the rest of the week in Reading. I’ll be posting pictures of it and hopefully be writing a blog about it shortly after. I’m working on a video from my trip to Finland so keep an eye out for that as well.
Last night I met a few people from America who were on spring break in Sweden! They were really nice and we became pretty good friends in the short time we were together. Unfortunately, they left this morning so we didn’t get to show them around much, but it was still nice to talk to some more Americans.
Some more good news is the bed bugs are officially gone in my room! The exterminators came and got rid of them. They searched the other rooms and found bugs in basically all the other rooms (potentially the room with the source). Within the next few days the house should be free of bed bugs!
I’m super excited about London and I can’t wait to share everything about it when I get back. I miss everyone back home and I hope you’re all doing well!
