My name is Phoebe and I will be here on Åland for this year. I come from Queensland, Australia and have been in Finland for 1 month. It was 40 degrees when I left, and after over 30 hours of travel, I was welcomed by the brisk winds of Helsinki.
During my first week in Finland I attended a language camp at Karkku (near Tampere). During this time I was able to experience snow for the first time. This included building a snow man, having a snow ball fight and of course, going swimming in a "vak".
I am very excited for the coming months and cant wait to experience more of what this wonderful country has to offer.
