…since I left my usual surrounding behind me, got on the plane and came here to Estonia. I arrived on the 31st of August (2017) and I have to admit, that I did not know a human could feel so much at the same time as I did on this day.
I was nervous about leaving everything that I know and comforts me behind me, but also happy, that I can finally go abroad – a dream I had for a long time already. But I also was sad to leave my friends and family, because I never left them for such a long time. Nonetheless I felt hope – because something new is starting – the possibility to experience situations, that I would not experience in Austria – the possibility of meeting people from all over the world.
I remember the day when I arrived to Tõrva. In the same moment we cross the borderline of the town all the lights went off. When Nadja –my roommate- opened the door, the house was lightened with several candles. But instead of take that as a bad omen, I thought it was a beautiful way to welcome me to Estonia.
Next day I met Nina. We were supporting some youngsters who are trying to raise a company. -How amazing is it? - Of course we didn’t do much of supporting because we know nothing about business. Instead, we talked a lot and she answered me everything that my curiosity bring out. From that moment I knew she will be a great colleague. She is always smiling and her laugh spreads everybody. As you know, we are working together and she is also writing a blog like this, so go and find out if she also has some opinion about me.
