A lot of roads lead to Lund

As a German citizen, getting to Sweden from Germany was intuitively synonymous with taking the train through Denmark – either on the mainland via Jutland and Funen or along the Fugleflugtslinjen between Hamburg and Copenhagen, using the ferry service across the Fehmarn Belt. But as I soon found out, there are other options as well. If you are still unsure how … Continue reading

You may leave university…but university does not leave you

Hey cuties, I was wondering… Is anyone else writing a report about body bias generators in 28nm FDSOI technology during the summer break or is it just me? Since I have been working on this project since the beginning of February, it shouldn’t be that hard to finish (finally, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, … Continue reading

Holiday in Sweden

When studying abroad, you should take the opportunity to explore the country during the holiday. Since the summer break is around three months long, there is enough time for an extended tour. Together with two friends, I had a road trip around the southern part of Sweden, which included cities like Gothenburg, Karlstad, Uppsala, Stockholm, Jönköping and many more. A … Continue reading

Your home away from home

Finding accommodation in Lund is considered one of the most challenging parts of student life. So it was for me 🙂 Without going deep into detail I would recommend you to keep on trying to get one from LU accommodation or AF Bostäder, or through the student nations, if you are still looking for it. This is a safer way … Continue reading

Traffic in Lund

Lund is a nice small town. You can easily reach everywhere by bike in 20 mins from Lund center. However, bike traveling more than half an hour everyday could be quite tiring because the town is not flat. I had a hard time the first semester when I lived in green house, which is all the way down to the edge … Continue reading
