October in a wrap!

October has been amazing! We had kanelbullensdag (kanelbullar’s day) on the 4th of October. Kanelbullar is basically a cinnamon roll or cinnamon bun. And living in Sweden for one year, I would say that it is pretty much a Swedish thing! You can buy it in supermarkets, and for fancier ones, you can easily find it in a bakery or … Continue reading

LT..Who??

  When I was told Lund is a campus city I didn’t know what to expect coming from a university that had clearly defined boundaries for campuses. The faculties at Lund almost spill over into the city, you find yourself walking right into various schools and faculties.

When in Lund, get a bike.

Here comes my first blog post…Since a bicycle is the most convenient mode of transport here in Lund I thought of starting off with that. Lund is quite a small town with each part of it easily accessible through bikes and hence it is highly recommended you get one in the initial couple of months especially if you have come … Continue reading
