Five months in Sevilla, done. Practice at surgical ward, community nursing, pediatric- and neonatal wards, plus plenty of more. Visited the firefighters, emergency call-center and SAMU. Learned so much according to my future career, but most of all, learned so much about humanity and cultures.
Almost 2000 visits on my blog. Now the blog, my practical training report, and this period of being “spaniard” is about to be done. I also add few things here to sum up what you have to do at the end of your practical training, if you’re planning one.
- from the host University, get a signed document of the dates and context of your practical training or studies.
- return all the paperwork of your host University, and have an evaluation meeting with your professors.
- after your arrival to Finland, make sure you send your Erasmus papers to JAMK international office on time.
- check the possibilities to tutor the exchange students coming to Finland during next semester.
Few things about leaving the country: If you have too much luggage, you can buy a shipping for example by postal service; and for pretty huge box of 30kg’s max, you pay about 100€’s. It comes to your home address in Finland, more likely in 10-15 days. Great system. If you have to ship a bike, reserve a place for it in forehand and swift the handling bar sideways so the bike is completely flat. For bike, it’s about 30€’s/flight.
When I arrived to Finland, it was about 23:30 pm, and sun was about to go down. It was so green everywhere, and so peaceful. But the green, and amount of trees and forests it really was stunning. Going far makes you observe what’s close, as they say. And by the time I had gotten my luggage at Helsinki Vantaa Airport, hopped into a car and started my drive to Lahti, there sun was rising. I couldn’t believe my eyes… like, really?!? Is that the sun already? What’s the time??
I’m so happy that I had this experience. I got so many good new friends, and learned spanish, which opened plenty of new doors for my future career. Thank you JAMK and Universidad de Sevilla. Thank you Armi, and thank you Ana. Also thanks to all the teachers, students and kollegs who supported and taught me during this time. And thank you also to my fantastic roommates. I hope I’m meeting you all in the future again. Welcome to Finland for a visit! :)
