Meet Gdańsk

I came to Gdansk to complete my internship at Kemira Gdansk, in the back office. I have now been here for 3 weeks and there are still over 4 months to go.
The impression I have had so far are mostly positive. The work is nice, the colleagues are even nicer and very helpful. At the moment I am handling shipments within Finland but my scope will grow over time.

The city is beautiful and full of possibilities, whatever the heart desires. You can go climbing, go to the beach or suck up culture by visiting museums.

At the moment the Icehockey World Championship is going on and for every game of the Finnish Lions we Finns meet up and watch the games together. The Finnish community within the comp20160503_145053any is very strong, so you’ll never be alone.

I am excited for the remaining months, developing my skills in the back office and making more friends with my co-workers. I am also hoping to go to a Polish language course, to learn some Polish. And I am waiting for the summer to fully arrive because the city will be even more vibrant then.
