Come the 13th of December, Swedes celebrate Lucia with a special atmosphere where the lights are dimmed and the sound of the children singing. A person impersonating Lucia wears a crown of electric candles in a wreath … Continue reading

In this post, I will give brief thoughts (my own thoughts) on the mandatory courses. Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) (7.5 points) Definitely, my favourite course.

China Study trip Vol.1

Nadja’s post about the Urban Design Competition in China was so on point with everything everyone else was feeling the weeks prior to the trip in itself and then with what happened during those two weeks we were in Chengdu, China. For me, the opportunities the SUDes program offers its students during the study trips goes beyond being able to … Continue reading

New Studyperiod – New Goals ;)

Another study period is over. Another step closer to the end of this journey, but not just yet. After a rather difficult, few months, involving a lot of project submissions, reading and exams we jump into the second part of the fall semester. What’s on my agenda, you ask? Two courses and surviving Sweden’s beautiful but harsh winter. I found … Continue reading

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

We could … Continue reading
