This presents some interesting quirks that as a Scot (from further north than here) I am overly familiar with but still never get used to. … Continue reading

SUDes Goes to Sichuan, China!

Hey hey! I’ll have to be ‘brief’ because I’m jetlagged to death. From October 6-15th, SUDes 2nd years were in Chengdu, Sichuan, China for a collaborative workshop with students from Southwest Jiaotong University. As well as being an amazing work opportunity, it was an incredible experience on its own. The biggest pro for the trip, however, is that it was … Continue reading

Orientation Is Over

Glad Midsommar!

Hey hey! On Friday 23rd June it was Midsummer in Sweden, and so I thought I’d let you know how some friends and I celebrated. Five international students from my class (including me) were invited to a Swedish friend’s place in Lomma, a seaside town between Lund and Malmö that is best known for its beach. Through the day others … Continue reading

Spring-weekend

The passed weekend, and actually the passed week, the weather has been incredibly good! I got a good sunburn at Valborg (which is already blogged about by one of my fellow bloggers). But now this weekend we had a small event for ourselves here in Helsingborg. I spend the afternoon in the park, with my classmates, and with some of … Continue reading

It was a special and joyous occasion marking the 5th anniversary of IAS. It was also a great opportunity to meet other families and friends. The delicious, traditional Indian food only made the … Continue reading

Melodifestivalen

If you really want to integrate into the Swedish society, you’ll have to watch Melodifestivalen. Or in other words, the shows in which it’s determined which artist will represent Sweden during the upcoming Eurovision Song Festival. This tradition is deeply embedded (there are 4 semi-finals, 1 second chance round, and then a final round). Luckily for me, this is a … Continue reading

A last trip

Before I started my thesis project (already 2 weeks ago), I went on a trip to Kiruna. This trip I recommend to everybody! It was an amazing end of the holidays. We’ve done so many unforgettable things. Of course I should start of with our first night, when we went on a 4 hour hiking trip, waste-deep in snow, to … Continue reading

(For all of you who don’t know what it is, here comes a short explanation: A Nerf gun is a plastic gun that can shoot foam darts. 🙂 To start a Nerf war, one needs a couple of guns, … Continue reading
