profil-1Hej and welcome to this website! My name is Jannis Dickmann and I’m a student from Frankfurt, Germany. Right now, I’m located in Stockholm, Sweden as part of an Erasmus exchange. That’s why I write this blog.

If you want to know more and what it’s all about, continue reading my story. Välkommen!

Idag åker jag norrut för att upptäcka Sverige

I’m heading northwards today. From Frankfurt to Stockholm, covering a distance of 1.500 km to the capital city of Sweden, that I will call home for the next 18 months. I’m about to study biomedical physics at the Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH), the Royal Institute of Technology located in the north of Stockholm. But beyond studying, I want to discover a country that is yet unknown to me. I want to see its nature, experience its culture and get to know its people. Let’s see how much of this is possible during my time here.

In this little travel blog I want to share some thoughts about Sweden and the things I experience. But most of all, I want to show pictures taken in Stockholm and hopefully many other cities and places in Scandinavia. I won’t write too much text and thus focus on the picture. Nevertheless I would be glad, if you dropped a line in the comments section below each post!

For many posts you will see a little map indicating where the particular picture was taken. If you don’t want to chronologically read through the articles, there is a map of all posts with associated locations.

If you are, like me, an international student in Scandinavia, you are very welcome to write a guest post for this blog showing your pictures and your experiences. Don’t hesitate to contact me!

In case you have any ideas, suggestions or just want to say hello, get in touch with me on Facebook or send me a mail. You can also subscribe to new blog posts by email.
