Off to Finland
My name is Ann-Laure and I am in Helsinki, Finland, spending the last couple of weeks of my Erasmus. It has been an amazing journey with a lot of beautiful memories, experiences and new friends.
Finland? Yes, Finland!
I chose to go to Finland because I wanted to go in the first semester so I would still be able to do my internship in the second semester. Helsinki is not a very big city but there are many things to do there is an easy access to Stockholm, St-Petersburg or even LAPLAND! Lapland is so magical and beautiful, I totally fell in love with everything there.
Before the fun, some schoolwork
The school I go to is Haaga-Helia and it is a very innovated and creative school. The Finnish language is too difficult to learn in one semester so I didn’t really try. I did learn to say ‘Kiitos’, which means ‘Thank you’.
