UMEÅ 2014 in 35 Seconds

Så, the student ambassadors @ StudyInSweden.se went away for a work-trip up north – Umeå, the European Capital of Culture 2014.

The city has about 90,000 inhabitants… it’s not as small as I mentally pictured, but it is VERY cozy.

We löv’d it!!!

The Umeå Institute of Design greeted us and we are über impressed!
