Vive la France

Hi guys!
I just want to update you from my exchange semester in France! I really enjoy my stay here and the the school is very good. I study at SKEMA Business School which is a private high ranked university in France so I feel very motivated to be here and privileged to have got this chance.
You can read about my life at the French Riviera on my blog, unfortunately it is just in Swedish, but there are a lot of pictures to see :)
I miss you very much! Lots of love to you all!


Two weeks ago Fofo arrived to Sweden and most of us Swedes, well all of us except from Olivia that is abroad studying, took some time off so that we could travel down to Lund and Malmö to meet him! Frida took a lot of pictures from our days together so later she or Helene will blog about what we did these days. I just wanted to share a photo from when Fofo and I went to IKEA for some Swedish fika and shopping :) It was a great day!

A cup of tea in Mönsterås

Last Friday I visited Helene at her father's house in Mönsterås at the east coast of Sweden.  It was really nice to see her again and just have a little chat, have some barbeque, go for a walk and drink some tea with her boyfriend and sister. Unfortunately Frida couldn't come even though she had planned for it but I hope I will see her and the other Swedes and Fofo in August!!

What about you guys? What is happening in your lives? Tell me :) I still miss you.

May feelings in Växjö

Last weekend we had a reunion in Växjö and the only one missing was Karin, but for me who had missed so many of the past reunions it was great to see the others again, and a little strange. If feels like if the time has past so fast since that day in june in 2008, crazy. I realized that I have to better at keeping in touch from now on. And I have to be less stressed but there is so much to do with my bachelor thesis this last week :(

I hope everything is fine with you and I still think about you all a lot. Let us be better about updating the blog!
Hera are som pictures from the weekend.

What happend the third year at the uni!

I just want to update you about what has happend in my life the last months... with some pictures. I can't believe this is my final semster at the Linnaeus University. Crazy, time has past so fast. I lovaeall of my friende here and the Campus life, even though I've started to look forward to come out to what we call "the reality" and start working, move to another town and do new things. But right now, I'm just trying to do the best of the time that is left. This week we started our thesis that we will work on for ten weeks, so now I'm really keeping myself busy!

How are you guys? Please put up some photos of your lives as well, I'm curious about what you are up to. I miss you, and I feel like coming back to Costa Rica soon, some day.

Hugs for all of you!

Well, most of the days look like this, writing papers and studying hard for exams

Just for you to know, normally life here is not this glamourous! Not at all :P

Take care!

Imperial in Heredia one year ago

Do you remember that evening? I sure do, especially today, since it's my 23rd birthday and exaclty one year ago you all gave me my best birthday ever. Therefore I wanted to share some photos with you! I have not forgot about the blog and I will be better at updating it from now on... since I think it's so nice to read about what you have been up to as well!

Best birthday cake ever, thanks Marce's family :)

Beautiful girls

Thank you everybody! I love you

Sweet June

Nice Frida to see some pictures from your midsummer celebrations, and as I promised I will share some of mine! Emma I suppose you have had a great time in Costa Rica with Marce and the other guys! It must be quite unique that so many from the Swedish participants have returned to their friends in CR and you ticos should always be aware of that you are very welcome back to Sweden. We miss you.

June has soon passed, I've finished my second year at the University with good results but most of all I really love my classmates, they have been a huge part of my experience in Växjö and it's sad that we only have one year left together. No I'm working for almost nine weeks until the 15th of August...

I have not so much plans for the summer but hopefully I will hang out with some of the Swedes
if we get time to go to one of the biggest islands in Sweden to camp and swim in the sea.

And as you might have heard the Swedish crownprincess has got married.
It was a really beautiful weddding and a lot of love in the air.

Kisses and hugs to all of you! Take care!

Easter one year ago, do you remember?

Glad Påsk på er allihop! Jag lovar att uppdatera er med vad som hänt senaste tiden också och nästa vecka åker jag ju till Budapest! MEN, först upp med bilderna från Linköpingshelgen!

Barsebäckshamn och bullbak

... dags för lite uppdatering. Mitt liv känns riktigt hektiskt just nu och kalendern är fullklottrad de närmsta veckorna, vilket känns både jobbigt och inspiererande. Förmodligen kommer jag inte att kunna komma till Linköping, men vi får se... Jag saknar er alla och hoppas att vi planerar in något kul till sommaren, varför inte den där resan över Östersjön!?

Ticos, how are you? You should also share parts of your lives here at the blog. I also would like to thank you for the time we had together before and after christmas,  my birthday party rocked! Miss you all!

Today's project, now I'm off to the library for som studies

3:e advent

I just want to share some pictures from the last weeks here in Växjö. Except from all the normal studying where I'm writing a big essay in Service- and Relationshipsmarketing I have now also got welcomed to the new board of the Economics and Business associactiopn for students here at the University for 2010. We have had a lot of information, got a project manager education day and been out eating at a fancy restaurant down town with a party afterward here at Campus where my predecessor got me really drunk (!) hmm, but it was a nice evening...

Styrelsen 2010

Today I've mostly prepared for the journey, studied, taken a walk in the first falling snow, got some christmas feelings by drinking glögg and having a lussekatt :)

5 days left now...

Thoughts from a rainy Växjö

It's cold, windy and Växjö is probably the town where it rains the most in the whole country!
Now I'm longing for the first real snow to come, it's quite special and it would be nice to see the ground all white before I go down south to beaches and sun and crazy christmas celebration on the other side of the Atlantic ocean. It's going to be totally awsome! Miss you guys! But I'll see you soon :)

Weekend in Linköping

Two weekends ago I went by train to Linköping, another town with a lot of students to visit some friends and to spend som time with Olivia. I had just finished an exam so it was so nice to leave campus for a while and have a good time with your friends! Linda and Edina are my old classmates from junior high and we're all from the same place back home so nowadays we do not meet that very often, to bad. The weekend was totally perfect and during the Sunday I catched up with Olivia to have lunch and do some shopping at the mall before I went back home.

Miss you, but i'll come back to Linköping another time!

It's fall and I like it!

Walking in colorful leafs on my way to school...

In one and a half week I'll go to see Olivia in her new hometown, nice!
I promise I'll bring the camera. 73 days left to paradise, by the way...

Update from a students life

So here we are again, a year ago I was one of the new sudents here at Växjö University and I had no idea then, that very first day, that this would be the beginning of my amazing years here at the Uni. This year I participated in the kick-off week as a leader to help introducing the newly arrived students to the campus area and to all of he fun activities you are offered here, but also me and a couple of my classmates told them about the bst way in how to study and how they could find their way around the school bulidings.
Here are some photos from the week. What about you other guys? Why am I the only one writing here at the blog? Swedes, Ticos?
Hur var nollningen Olivia och Ivan? Helene?

Here are some pictures from our stop at Gotland during our roadtrip. Gotland is Sweden´s biggest island and a true paradise during the summer, with amazing beaches and a lot of historical and cultural monuments to visit. Visby is the name of the largest town on the island, and it's a beautiful small town, with narrow streets, lots of roses and friendly people with a funny accent. Gotland is famous for its' sheeps and old stone monuments called "raukar" wich are amazing to watch during sunset and sunrise. Gotland is the perfect destination for a summer vacation. Haha, this may sound as traveling catalogue ad !

Earlier this week I visited Helene in Mönsterås! We had a great time together, just relaxing. In the afternoon we went to Oknö to have a swim, and we were the only ones at the beach since it was raining! haha We ended our lovely day together with some fika!

Trying to show the ticos my Imperial-towel, but it's too windy

Not as cold as it looks like
