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 websites that might be useful for expats there.
Estonia: Paradise Of The North
Tania is an Estonian citizen who currently lives in Munich, Germany.Although she does not live in Estonia, Paradise Of The North contains a lot of useful information about the country, and as an expat herself, Tania is able to write about the challenges people face when they move abroad. The site is an eclectic mixture of all sorts of topics that will be of interest to expats, from local events to news about the country itself. There are also lists of Estonian proverbs, as well as thoughts on the history of Estonia and recommendations for people who are visiting for the first time.
With a large repository of information about Estonia’s society, culture, economy and history, as well as a guide to local events and some tips on learning the language, this site is a one-stop shop for all your basic needs before you move. The links along the top menu will take you to sister sites that contain more in-depth information on each topic, whether you’re looking to visit Estonia for a short period, go there to study or relocate permanently.
The Marvellous Adventures Of Matthew And Maris Crandall
If you like to find out about local events and opportunities from people who are living in Estonia as expats, rather than from sites with a less personal writing style, this is the place for you. Matthew and Maris pack a lot into their days, and write prolifically about their adventures. A great way to view Estonia through the eyes of people who have already relocated.
Charm Offensive has been running since 2012 and is a well laid-out blog that complements each post with beautiful pictures. It features Estonian celebrities and popular culture, as well as restaurant reviews and updates on the author’s personal life. If you’re into fashion, culture, music or food, you will thoroughly enjoy Charm Offensive’s updates.
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!
