Travel to Tartu and have a beer
Tartu is the second biggest town in Estonia. And Estonia is one of the Baltic States and is located between Finland, Russia and Latvia.
Tartu is basically a nice student town with 100k inhabitants. I'm not one of those 100k. The students, all 20k (or something) are extra.
There's no sea nor ocean nearby, no great mountains, even the weather is like everywhere else in Estonia (shit autumn weather 12months a year). Doesn't sound like much, does it? But it does - if a town doesn't have any of those things I mentioned, but still managed to be one of the greatest towns to live in, especially for young people, then it must be special.
I don't know what makes it special - maybe the pubs Illekaard and Zavood, maybe the arch bridge where students like to walk over the arch while being drunk. Maybe it's the Pirogovi square where people are allowed to drink alcohol during the summer time (if you didn't know, in Estonia it's usually forbidden to drink on the streets), maybe it's just the people - local and foreign students and former students that are hanging around here. Maybe it's the Tartu University. Who knows. Or maybe it's the mentality that there's no hurry, ever....independent of what you are talking about.
Well, that's Tartu.
