The Semester here in Dortmund has been awesome, very challenging but also rewarding.
On my spare time I’ve been travelling, tasting awesome German products including wine that is so cheap and so so good. I’ve been to Luxembourg a few times, in Holland and also traveled a lot inside of Germany. One of the highlights here were when we went to see ice hockey world championship game in Cologne. Finland vs USA and Finland won!!
My absolute favorite place has been the beautiful Berlin. There is so much to see and so much to do.
I also loved the beautiful Mosel valey. Mosel is a famous vineyard area in Germany, where the grow the King grape, Riesling.
Studying in Dortmund has been a bit harder than in Finland. The subjects are taught very differently, more university alike than in Finland. There are very few things that we learn through practice but more through lectures and team assignments. Also people are very grade oriented so to say. Also the lecturers prepare you much more for the coming exams than in Finland.
All in all everything is going well here in Dortmund. The weather has been awesome at least comparing to Finland (for what I’ve heard).
