Sauna at the sea … (updated)

Published on April 2, 2011 By Johannes H. Glitsch

Today we went to our first sea side sauna 🙂 It’s a public sauna in the south western part of Turku at the sea. Went there at about 6 p.m. and went back at about 8 p.m. Nice place 🙂 You can jump into the cold water after sauna or just sit on a bench […]

Lapland and Norway

Published on March 28, 2011 By Verena Hausmann

We just came back from a very nice 4 day trip together with another German girl, Andrea, and one Spanish guy, Saul. We started our trip in Turku at 7 p.m. taking the bus to the airport. We wanted to pick up our car there, but nobody was at the desk. So we called the […]

Last man standing …

… or playing ice hockey for a last time? Ice and snow are gradually disappearing over here. That makes us wonder how long the ice hockey place will stay open. As it is open-air we worry with every bit of snow and ice that goes away. That last game has been pretty intense at some […]

Skiing at Hirvensalo

Published on March 13, 2011 By Verena Hausmann

Together with 5 other erasmus students we took the bus today to get to the island Hirvensalo just out of Turku (if you wouldn’t know you would rather say there is a big river that divides it from the main land instead of the sea!). Even though they just have a very small hill they […]
