Are you wondering how Finns enjoy the winter? Last Saturday we had the chance to experience a very typical way to do it! 

All the ESNers went to Sauna and ice-swimming! I know it might sound crazy, but it is definitely a great experience which I recommend to everyone! Meeting local and international students while discovering the Finnish traditions was amazing! Besides, we had a guest who gave us lot of advice to make the best of the winter in Finland, so there are no excuses to stay at home! 

The booklet which was given by the ESN contains very practical information to be active in outdoor activities during the winter. 

Ending the event by feeling relaxed and having a cup of gloggi (traditional Finnish drink) while talking to international colleagues was the best way to put the end to the event!
