Month No2

My first two months in Finland went by in a flash. It still feels like it was yesterday when I arrived here in Pori and I was freezing in the train station. Now, I am still freezing but maybe its because its 15°C colder than it was then.

This time I would prefer to use pictures to tell you how I pass my time here:

Yyteri – The Baltic sea looks amazing… the water was really cold though 😀

I have seen more lakes and rivers here than in my whole life

Planned and took part in an anime and manga event – NIPPORI

Finally, I did the Finnish sauna: 90°C sauna and then into the sea

Went to an Arctic museum and learned more about the eskimo

All in all, I am having the best time of my life. I have the opportunity to travel, to learn a new language and to meet people from all over the world and that makes me so happy. I still miss home and my friends, but here I believe I am making great memories and I am learning and doing stuff that I wouldn´t be able to do anywhere else. I love the nature and despite me hating winter I truly love how Finland looks covered in snow. I am still dreaming of summer, though.

P.S – Thanks to everyone who has made this experience so extraordinary for me.  I hope that EVS continues to exist and even more poeple are able to experience what I am right now. See you soon 😉
