Ulen Reviews

2 reviews
It is a small town where everything is in sort of a routine and not much ever changes. One thing I do enjoy about Ulen is that people there are very friendly and a lot of people know each other which puts a friendly feeling in the town. One thing I would like to see change is just to get some new people in town or some sort of change to the routine so not everything is the same
