I made a trip from Stockholm to Helsinki by cruise. Although we had just moved from one nordic country to another, it felt very different in Helsinki. It was way quieter than Stockholm. The weather was much colder, and the streets looked different. In the end, I was intrigued by the city. And so I … Continue reading Helsinki
When you go abroad
Starting living on my own was a huge step. I didn’t just leave my parents’ house and move to another place, not another city, but another continent. I made a big step out of my comfort zone while I had never traveled alone or lived somewhere on my own. When I said goodbye to my … Continue reading When you go abroad
Tallinn remains in my heart
As a non-EU resident, visiting different European cities and countries is really interesting. They differ quite a lot from the region I come from, middle-East. Although many people tend to go to famous touristic cities, such as Paris, Amsterdam, London...etc., I am much into visiting less touristic places where you can blend into the local … Continue reading Tallinn remains in my heart
When it’s too hard to get out of your bed
I moved to Sweden to do an Erasmus exchange program for one semester in January 2022. I’m kind of sure that the 2019 version of me who was trying to apply for universities abroad never imagined that in less than two years, she had already studied in two different countries.

You should never see Venice !
When it comes to Venice, there are thousands of musts on the internet telling you where to go or what to see. There are plenty of monuments, places, bridges or even museums.
