Erasmus Oulu – Finland

Bernd Verhofstadt and Tom Mampaey

Things I have been doing

You’re right, it has been a while again, and I really did A LOT!
I’m already getting the feeling that time is shortening and I’m using/living every minute of it!

Some things I did/that happened since my last post:

  • Project work: ‘The Smart Fridge’
    It speaks for itself (dunglish? 😀 ) that I’m working hard on my project with lots of up’s but definitely some “down’s” too. At one point I had to change the technology and it really felt like starting all over again, but that’s all part of the project of course.

  • ESN Pirates of the Balitic sea !
    An awesome boat-trip with a cruise with over 1000 Erasmus-students on-board!

    Really an amazing weekend, and a Duvel was even cheaper than a Stella 😀
    Bernd made a nice blog-post off this trip. You can find it here !
  • Big Air Championship 2015
    I went to this nice event with some friends. We really saw some amazing stunts and crazy back-flips! The weather was nice and the snow was perfect.

    Nice fact: it was a free event!
  • My Birthday!
    It was my b-day on the 25th of march. It started that night in ‘Hevimesta’ where the group surprised me with a birthday-song at the karaoke. I got lots of postcards, messages and even postpackets! When I got back from school that day the awesome people of Otokylä were waiting at my door with a really nice cake. They sang happy-birthday for me in more than 5 different languages. I was speechless…

  • Birthday 2.0 in Stockholm with the best girlfriend in the world!
    The 27th of march it was already waaaaaaaaay too long since I saw my little Rocket! We couldn’t resist it anymore so we had to plan a visit. We decided to explore Stockholm together and it was such an amazing amazing week again! We went to the great ‘Vasa-museum’ (really nice), did the crazy Skyview over Stockholm on the Ericsson globe (where artists like Paul McCartney, MetallicaThe Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many more like to perform).

    We also had such a great accommodation again, for such a good price! ‘Lunda Pensionat’ was inc. an amazing view (!), Good breakfast, Free wifi, perfect location,… A friend of me had been on Erasmus in Stockholm and recommended us Samborombon where we had a delicious dinner for my birthday!

    We also went to the beautiful Gamla Stan, the Sofie-path, the narrowest street,…
    Shortly said: there are not enough words or pictures to tell you how great this visit was again! I’m looking forward to see you here in Oulu soon!!!

  • Family visiting!
    When I got back I got the first visit of my close family! My lovely aunt and my awesome sister came to Oulu for 4 days.  I immediately showed them all my pictures very enthusiastic and gave them a tour around my neighborhood and accommodation! We also did a “little walk” ( haha 😀 ) to the beach! Where the sun was shining but we still could walk like Jesus did!

    We couldn’t complain about the food either! We went to eat a real reindeer-steak which was very delicious and to a nice viking-restaurant where we ate our meal off a sword (only awesome!!)
