Oh, the best part? It's an extremely nice little place. I actually was born there and lived my first .... 16 years(?) there. So I know the place very well. It's one of those "I'll never live here, wait until I get the chance, I'll move out"... stories But now that I've lived all over the planet after that?
Can't wait to build a home there. It's one of the best spots in the whole world in my opinion. Very very safe, very quiet and slow, extremely liberal in terms of... it's a small place, less than 5000 people, yet it's very accepting and welcoming. It has a long history that is proud, and in fact the accepting of everyone is its inheritance, it comes from real events that actually have taken place.
It's a place where biker gang and hippie community lives next to each other in total peace. Don't like either of them, but everyone gets to live like they want, no one is thought any less of. It's a different vibe, it's one of those places that all the crap never just got there. One of those bubble places. To this day I think this is one of the most serious crimes, or attempts of one that ever actually took place in the public space.
So ... I can't wait to go back I'm really really happy about it. It's the best thing I can do for my kids as well. one of those places where people don't lock their doors unless they'll be gone more than few hours, and even then - maybe. It's that safe, you can let your kids just go and roam.
A real story: there was once an attempt to rob a bank. The guy threatened to pull a knife in the open if the teller didn't comply. The teller told the guy (name changed) "Jack, you don't have a knife because you're not that kind of a man. Go home." And he did. And cops were never called.
The best part of the place is that ... and this is something rare. When you close your eyes in the evening and listen... you hear nothing. I mean nothing, not even a sound of a car going somewhere far away. It's very special. None of that noise. You feel very rested...... and it's not far away from the busiest city centre that is our capital, only 35 minutes
