After Dalarna

The Dalarna experience started with a Taxi ride, a trip to IKEA for lunch and visit to Kupolen – the shopping centre. There was then a lecture about the Dalarna region. Thereafter, we got to meet very friendly and welcoming Dalarna University students. In the evening we had a barbeque. On the second day, we […]

Dalarna: Sweden’s Middle Arena

To the Middle Arena It is so exciting to be going to Dalarna. I am sure my classmates are just as chuffed. The only times I have heard of Dalarna reading about the Vikings and watching the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in 2015.                 I never thought […]
