Finland Travel

See you Lapland


The time has come to say goodbye Lapland, or as I prefer “see you”. I already know that I will come back one day, that´s for sure.  I am sitting on the bed on the train but still can´t believe that I am on my way to Sweden. One hour ago, I did sit at the Lappi Areena watching an intense ROKI game against Jokipojat and now I am here… I was standing at the railway station, crying, thinking about what would happen if I would not enter this train that will end the fantastic time I had in Rovaniemi. I don´t want to leave, it is way too soon… But every goodbye is hard…

Before I go on, I want to say thank you to all the amazing people I met and could share so many special moments with, which made my Lapland experience so much better. Without you guys, it would have been the same.

My semester abroad in Lapland at the Lapland University of Applied sciences was one of the best things I did in my life. I had the chance to do so many exciting things, go on amazing trips, meet new people from all over the world, watch ice-hockey almost every week, learn in a completely different way and environment as well as having fun and more than a great time! My suitcase is on its way and so am I. But I, and I think I can speak for almost all ERASMUS students, I don´t want to leave, or at least I want to return in the new year, instead of going back to Bavaria. The life here in Lapland is so much more vibrant and exciting, every day is a new adventure. And especially now at the end, we thought about so many more things we could do here in Rovaniemi.
