Amanda Goes to Sweden: Intro to Stockholm

February 6, 2014 - Okay, so, this is my first time blogging and I honestly have no idea where to start. I guess maybe with the basics? Hej! I’m Amanda. I’m technically a senior in mechanical engineering, but I’ll have one more year at Illinois after my semester here in Sweden. I’m studying abroad in Stockholm at The Royal Institute of Technology (also known as KTH or Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan in Swedish).
