Yep, I finally managed to reach Helsinki after 10 days spent wandering about Europe by train… we’ve seen Mainz (Germany), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Copenaghen (Denmark) and Bergen (Norway).
From there I reached Stockholm and, by overnight ferry, Helsinki. The hotels are super expensive, so I rented a room as soon as I could.
Right now I’m busy trying to arrange all the paperwork and finding some basic furniture for my room… I don’t even have a bed right now! (apparently Finns don’t provide beds in their student dormitories)
Lessons are bound to start in 5 days time, so I’ll need to have everything fixed by then. We’ll see.
