Alex: Tartu city

Hello everyone, how are you ? I hope you're doing fine! I'm also doing fine, thank you for
asking. If you don't already know me, my name is Alex. I’m Greek and I'm volunteering as a youth
worker in Narva-Jõesuu Noortekeskus.

This is the first of the many (probably) story diaries that will give you the opportunity to take a glimpse in my life here as a volunteer in Estonia.

I'm also doing something similar in the Facebook page of Narva-Jõesuu Noortekeskus, so you can also go and check that out as well! There are three story diaries out at the moment, but there will be more...

So if I should share something with you that will probably give you an insight of how do I function as a person that would probably be the fact that I really enjoy exploring and having new experiences!!
One of the ways that I usually succed that is by travelling to new places and seeing new things, which in that case I’m doing also here in Estonia! I haven't travelled to a lot of places, but I hope that this will change in the coming months...

If I should mention one place that I really had the chance to explore and see recently that could be Tartu. Everything about that city is great. The architecture, the alternative cafes-bars and restaurants, but most of all the people that live there. That is because Tartu is the student capital of Estonia and of course that means that it has a lot of students from all over Estonia, but also from all over the world. That gives you the chance to meet and getting to know a lot of people from all kinds of different backgrounds and that for me is one of the best things about Tartu.

Except for exploring new places and having new experiences, I also love meeting and talking with new people!

Whenever I’ll have the chance and if you of course liked this story diary and you want to see more, you can text to me and ask me for any questions that you want me to answer you or to describe about new themes regarding my volunteering life here in Estonia!
