Default Estonia?

Don’t we have somebody from Estonia here? My daughter is applying for a Fulbright Scholarship to Estonia.

The only information I can find is the standard google search stuff. Looks pretty safe etc. Also financially stable.

She has friends i. Germany, Belgium, France and Ireland.

She’s spent a lot of time in France.

The application process will take a year and if she gets it, is pretty prestigious.

She’ll be graduating able to teach English.

So what is it like? Safety wise etc.? She’ll be 22 and a single woman.

Matt

Umm, I'm from Estonia, I know there are at least two other members from Estonia too.
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.

Well the process is started. This will take a while. We are excited and we'll definitely go for a visit. I wish I could do it during an Enduro GP weekend.
