My home in Lund

This gallery contains 17 photos.

Hey hey! Today I’ll kick off the housing series as started by Ruben earlier today. He gave some great recommendations of jumping off points for your search and I’d recommend reading! As for me, after a long search I found my own little student studio apartment in an area near LTH called Kämnärsrätten (pronounced kinda like shaem-naers-raet-ten I think?

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
