Uppsala: Where the Bikes do Roll
Exchange was always a concept far off in the back of our minds. It was this exciting opportunity that we’d been planning for basically our whole university careers, a treat of sorts to celebrate an end to another era in our lives. After two and a half years of planning and six months working hard at our internships we were all set to go. With a few tears, hugs and many, many farewells we were off.
With a good two weeks before orientation festivities began at Uppsala, Sweden, we were able to travel throughout Europe. The ability to travel from country to country in a matter of hours never ceased to amaze us. Trying to squeeze in as many sights, countries and food as we could on our journeys we managed to visit:
After all our travelling we were finally in Stockholm, Sweden, just a little outside our final destination. We explored the city visiting old town, the palace and applied for our residency cards.
One day and a fifty minute train ride later we were finally in Uppsala.
Meeting new friends, learning to co-habitate with other students, getting friendly with our new bikes and learning swedish has already been a massive and intense journey. We’re anxious for the semester to begin. Wish us luck.
