I've got three pictures

Linz is the city I grew up in and where I spent 18 years in total. A nice city with a population of nearly 200.000 (3rd biggest in the country). Infamous for it's role during the Nazi regime, as it was Hitler's favorite city. It's nice to grow up there, since there is hardly any crime, the schools are excellent and the economy is doing pretty good, but I'm really glad that I decided to move to Vienna for my studies.

From July 2012 - January 2013 I was allowed to move to Turku, Finland in order to attend the local university. Had a great time there After that, I did an internship in Hong Kong for two months. Moved into an apartment near Bowrington Road, Wan Chai. Awesome neighborhood.

Good! Somehow I was under the impression that you didn't like it. Wonder where I got that idea from.

Good to hear that!

Well, it was really rainy and cold this year. Windy as well. Some 8C on the 30th and barely hit 10C yesterday. That brought down the mood a bit. Not a very good Vappu this year.
