Ilus Eesti, beautiful Estonia. My family's homeland. Estonia's countryside and people have an endearing gentleness about them which you fall in love with slowly and imperceptibly. I have nothing but respect and admiration for Estonians' courage and determination to survive despite centuries of repression, tyranny and foreign occupation. This blog aims to promote Estonian news, history and culture and seeks to enlighten readers about everything this unique country has to offer.

Head Emakeelepäeva! Happy Mother Tongue Day!
Today we celebrate our beautiful Estonian language! Sometimes when I am travelling I come across people speaking Estonian in foreign lands and it's always a joy to hear!
The double vowels found in the Estonian language is one of its charms.
