Backpack and Explore Europe..!

It is so common that most of us would like to be young travelers going around and exploring at this age! Being a non-EU student at Lund has given me this wonderful opportunity to go backpack around Europe. First of all, I feel very easy to commute to the international airports – Malmö and Copenhagen from Lund. The Schengen visa gives … Continue reading

The exam week of the autumn semester is almost over! It is interesting to observe the mood of the students around campus- while some people laugh loudly in some corners, happy that exams are over, others still study hard, as it can be seen in the picture taken inside LTH’s Studiecentrum.

Be thankful for what you got!

After a long and, what I initially perceived as, cold winter, I had a break before next semester. I decided to go to Riga in Latvia for a quick holiday. I was soon to discover a whole new meaning for the word cold. With a blistering – 20 degrees, all my previous experiences with “cold weather” in Sweden seemed ridiculous. … Continue reading

Snow Snow everywhere!

Happy new year 2016! Lund has been welcoming the New year with snow. Last year, I had my ‘First snow experience’ with snow-ball fights and building snow man during Christmas.

Traveling Between Copenhagen and Lund

Traveling between Copenhagen and Lund had once been an easy, direct journey. With the building of the Øresund Bridge the region used to pride itself on its open borders where one could live in Denmark, yet study or work in Sweden (or vice versa). The journey from Copenhagen airport to Lund was a mere 30 minutes. However, with the refugee crisis … Continue reading
