A Finn greets you all with a hello from Austira!
Time flies and it has flied for over 3 months already. I’m been spending my time in a little city called Wels in the upper Austria studying electrical engineering. The School is called Fachhochschule Ober-Österreich (Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences).
With me there came around 30 new incomings from all over the world (mostly mexicans and french) and 4 from Finland. The whole time I’m been here I’ve been living in a student dorm called Schulerheim.
The studying has gone really well with free time events almost every week. People are really nice here and are ready to help if you just mind to ask. The teaching in here has been really good and there has not really been problems with what comes to the school.
Living in Wels has been really different from living in Finland. Most of the free time is spent with other incoming and friends I have made from just going around Austria. There has been so much stuff going on in these past few months that it is hard to put into one blog post.
There has been traveling to other cities and countries, skiing, student events, partying, sports and all kinds of activities all the semester and I’m happy I went to all of them. The biggest trip was with my dorm neighbors (Gregy, Ivan, Jose, Jose 2) to Prague -> Bratislava -> Budapest and back to Vienna. We had a lot of fun on that trip and saw a bit of the neighboring countries as well.
Here is some photos from there
By the way, I was disappointed not to find any kangaroos here but I still recommend Austria for a place to visit in Europe!
