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

Traditional celebration of spring: Valborg

Valborg (walpurgis night) has very little to do with religion and everything to do with the arrival of spring in Sweden. On 30 April, as spring approaches, Lund University students gather together in Stadsparken (the city park) for Valborg, or ‘Siste april’ (the last day of April) for a festive celebration. During the day, students in groups have barbecues and … Continue reading

However, to everybody’s surprise, it is snowing at this time of the year! We are having a white Easter instead of white Christmas I suppose. Snow in April, makes me go crazy! As everybody resumes to work after nice Easter … Continue reading

Better weather, ongoing thesis work; two perfectly good reasons to get your mind set on procrastinating. I’d say a good way of procrastinating is going out to enjoy the weather, whenever possible. In Helsingborg, it can be really nice to visit the park at Kärnan or go to the harbour or shore called Gröningen. However, don’t plan to be there … Continue reading

One of these activities … Continue reading
