Work hard – what have we done so far in Finland? After we have joined up in our teams, we got to work right away.
First step was to inform us about the companies we were about to work for. Cool thing was that we could choose working in different location on the campus site.
The library, several Cafés or just super cosy armchairs in quite fancy project class rooms.
Frequently, we shared the current state of affaires with our lecturer and fellow students. Receiving feedback and continuously optimizing our plans on the project.
Dinner was served at one of the five restaurants on the campus site. Afterwards we enjoyed our break outside. Highlight was the nearby Lake. Fun fact – It is quite common in Finland for universities to have their own Sauna. Which we definitely will give a try on our last day. Thats for sure.
After we did manage to set up our first drafts for our project plans, we drove back to town by bus. The day before, we had discovered a nice sushi restaurant – Dominos, which we’d like to try. Star of the menu was chocolate sushi!!
Play hard – Well, one does work hard, one can party hard as well. Be sure, we definitely didn’t miss out that part. On the top floor in our hotel we got our little project ongoing 😉
Best Part, at that very evening the finish students invited us to their party. Lappeenranta is not as big as a city as Würzburg is, so there aren’t many parties. As a result, the chance of finding a club is not that high. Anyhow, the local club – Amarillo – had quite some music to play, like ‚classy‘ finish songs as well as normal charts. At the same time, there were some funny engagements and conversations with the local finish students.
