Final Day of Ice Hockey

Published on March 20, 2011 By Johannes H. Glitsch

This has been a very sad day in a way, but the ice is melting under one’s skates. In most parts of the ice place the top-most layer was a bit like snow – you went into the ice a centimeter or so. Not nice to skate on. Anyway, we kind of managed to play […]

… 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 […]

Tonight we went bowling. This has been like the first in years (at least it feels like it 😉 ) and it definitely the first bowling in Turku. Why did we meet? Well, see Dave (big guy with red hair)? It’s his birthday. He invited many people and asked them to invite whoever … that […]

Hi everyone, We are now here for more than one and a half month and we didn’t go out to jog yet. But I finally made it today and it wasn’t as cold or slippery as I expected it to be. Okay, I just walked for 3 kilometers, but come on, that’s better than nothing. […]

Skiing at Levi #2

Published on February 5, 2011 By Verena Hausmann

On our last day in Levi we again went skiing/snowboarding. It snowed the whole night before so that the slopes were kind of covert and we had the feeling of going deep snow skiing. Also during the day it went on snowing, but the view was a little bit better than on Thursday… Today we […]
