Finland

Look out Finland, I’ve arrived…

Well after what seems like endless days of travelling I’ve made it to my very own Finnish apartment. It only took three long flights, about 8 hours in layovers,  15 hours total in flights, and an 8 hour loss. Oh and 1 night in a hostel before getting the key to my 69 square foot apartment. But me and all of my luggage arrived safe and sound and so I’m grateful!

I got very little sleep on any of my flights or during any of my layovers, I was worried about missing flights or someone taking my bags. But I think I’m caught up now. I can’t believe I’m actually here in Helsinki, Finland. It’s surreal, but I intend on living it to the fullest (while being safe, mom.)! I miss seeing everyone as often as I’m used to, that’ll be the toughest part in this, but meeting new people is such an exciting though at the same time!!!

The people that stayed in my apartment before me left some dishes, a set of sheets, and even a pillow. That takes a little bit off of my list of things to pick up today!

Tick tock…

I obviously started a count down to my departure as soon as my flight to Helsinki was booked. Well in the hustle and bustle of finals and preparing for my trip, time got away from and now there is only 16 days until I leave! I am terrified… I don’t think Helsinki is ready for me, what will they do?! But I am beyond excited… what am I going to experience? Who will I meet? Where will I go? There is so much unknown but I’m ready for it… hopefully.
