At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at Estonia and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.

Vello Vikerkaar

A Canadian who made his home in his wife’s native Estonia writes with an astringent humour about his life in Estonia. Comparisons and cultural hurdles are plentiful in his lengthy posts, no topic is off limits and from an ex-army man turned musician turned writer, what else would you expect? Now a father of a bilingual child he is faced with more decisions that are specific to his expat family life, a challenging read and definitely worth a look.

Adam’s World

Six months have passed since Adam moved on from Tallinn, but his blog still contains helpful advice for any prospective expat. A job opportunity is what took this Polish native, via Sofia, Bulgaria, to Estonia and his new experiences there brought about his blog. His observations on his expat home will definitely strike a chord for any current expats and might serve as a humorous warning to prospective ones.

The Marvelous Adventures Of Matthew & Maris Crandall

Husband and wife team, Matthew and Maris, blog about their expat family life in Tallinn. On moving to Estonia in 2009 they started writing to update their friends and family across the globe of their ‘Marvelous Adventures’ and now have a diary like blog filled with useful snippets for anyone looking at living abroad. Cross cultural confusions, language learning (part of the blog is bilingual) and exploring their expat country as a growing family is just part of their everyday life. They do indeed have some marvellous adventures, which are usually accompanied by some utterly stunning photography.

The Estonian Language Blog

Whilst this blog has gone un-updated for some time it definitely stands the test of time as an excellent resource for any learner of the Estonian language. Whilst a learner of the language actually blogs here, the content is moderated by natives, so you can be sure of what you are learning. Various resources are used from the everyday to academic materials and you will find all the angles covered, even the dreaded grammar. This successful blogger passed his B1 language certification before moving onto Finnish, and he lets you know exactly what to expect, should you take the test.

We’re always on the lookout for more sites to feature - if you run a blog about living in Estonia, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!
