A short fragment of the story

Hi, my name is Yılmaz Can Toka, from Turkey/Ankara. I am 18 years old, and I am currently studying for my University exams, but I decided to take a break before completing them so that I can gain experience of living in a different country. I enjoy playing the guitar and singing and hope to form a band in the near future.

 If I met my younger self I wouldn’t believe that I would begin my new year in Denmark and Sweden

i meet some Americans and different people around the world.

I think living in Sweden as a student is so easy, there is a good public transportation system and the people are very helpful in helping you to find your way around. There are also so many places and activities for tourists in Lund. Lund is a small city in southern Sweden with fresh air, healthy water resources, and easy-to-find help for your problems. I really am enjoying this place way too much. Sweden/Lund is a good start to my travel journey.
