Swedish radio interviewed Philipp about his bike trip and why he has chosen to study in Umeå. He describes Umeå as a modern city that is not too big and not too small, but with a little too little snow.

- When I arrived in Umeå, it was less snow than I had hoped for, says Philipp Schraufstetter.

Philipp is an Erasmus student and will study Swedish and English during a semester at Umeå University.
