It's a small and very beautiful Baltic country, our IT solutions (private and government) are top 1 in the world (e-government, online voting etc.). Estonia is not only financially stable, but also stable in every other aspect. It's a shame that we are still often looked at as a remnant of soviet union and/or part of Russian fed, even though we have always had our faces towards west. Our people are very friendly and welcoming, we just need some time to get to know you better. We don't have such issues with other nationalities like Sweden, Norway, Finland or other countries have (we haven't blindly accepted refugees, and there are only a small number). I would say Tallinn, capital of Estonia, is at least 10x safer than Helsinki or Stockholm. Living cost is about 1.5x lower than Finland, but higher than Latvia, Lithuania, Poland etc.

Really been enjoying my time in your country. Shes in Valga, but has applied for a full time job in Tartu.

What a beautiful country.

Here some pics from Tallinn
A very nice old town.
We have a supplier over there and I’ve been several times in Estonia.

Well just a quick follow-up. Amid this covid-19 crap that's going on. Just 2 weeks after I left the state department ordered all grant recipients home. So she had to rush and only got half of her stuff packed. The other half she had to leave. Her boyfriend was able to retrieve some items for her.

He is still in Estonia, and their lockdown is starting to loosen up a bit. He is Finnish so he didn't have the option to come here. He has been able to work from home this whole time. In the meantime since she was unable to secure employment in Estonia due to no one hiring she has taken a job in Denver and will move there July 4th weekend.

It was a bit difficult with no closure for her or her students but we are happy she was able to get home. It's a saga of cancelled flights and closed boarders. About 72 hours with almost no sleep.
