Drink Tap Water

Finnish tap water is not only safe to drink straight from the tap, but it’s also one of the best in the world.  

Suitable outdoor clothing & footwear for the spring

The weather in May usually becomes very pleasant in Finland and the number of daylight hours is huge. However, as it can get refreshing sometimes, specially in the nights, be sure that you pack some layers. For instance, a reasonably warm jacket will be needed. Furthermore, it would be wise to pack a waterproof jacket or light raincoat for rainy days.

Usein kehotan opiskelijoita ja kollegoitakin ehkä vähän kuluneesti poistumaan omalta mukavuusalueelta. Itse olen sen tehnyt usein ja aina se on yhtä pelottavaa ja turhauttavaa, mutta myös niin innostavaa sekä palkitsevaa.

🤩 Tällä viikolla olen ollut mukana RUN-EU (The Regional University Network – European University) Super weekissa kehittämässä korkeakoulujen verkostoa ja yhteistä pedagogista ympäristöä. Päivät ovat olleet hyvin mielenkiintoisia, raskaitakin, mutta myös innostavia kun vaan uskaltaa heittäytyä ja hypätä mukaan. Hamkista oli mukava porukka paitsi järjestämässä, myös meitä osallistujia. hamkdf hamkhyvinvointi #run_eu #runsuperweek #opehommia
