When it is time to choose the destination for your internship you will experience that there are so many choices. You can choose for a specific subject or maybe you want to visit another continent. When I had to choose for a destination I already knew that I wanted to visit a Scandinavian country. During the summer I went to the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) to do my internship on structural acoustics.
Besides obtaining the experience to do a project on another university, an internship abroad is an opportunity to live in another city for a while and meet new people. Stockholm is a great place during the summer. In my spare time I spent a lot of time in beautiful Swedish lakes outside the city and walking around in the old city. Also I had to experience the Swedish Midsummer with the local people. All in all, I can look back to a great summer in the beautiful capital of Sweden!
