“In April 2014, I had just accepted a marketing job with an Estonian startup called Jobbatical that connects people with startup jobs around the world, and they offered to bring me to their Tallinn HQ for the start of my job before I continued to work remotely. ⚡️
It all happened so fast—I accepted the job and two weeks later I was landing in Tallinn, a city I couldn’t have even pointed to on a map a month earlier.⚡️
A lot of things surprised me about Estonia. Since it’s such a small country, everyone seems to be three degrees of connection away from anywhere else. The Estonian prime minister tweeted at our company when we hit a milestone. ⚡️ .
The bike that I used was actually borrowed from a famous Estonian rapper (a friend of a friend), and I somehow managed to make the local news before I even arrived. I submitted a smiling picture for my Estonian work permit, and it was rejected because of the smile.⚡️ . So I sent in a non-smiling selfie instead, and that was accepted. This article was on the front page of the biggest Estonia news site.⚡️ .
I also was surprised by the amount of sunlight as spring progressed into summer. Tallinn is quite near Finland and the Arctic Circle, so in the summer the sun never sets before 10 p.m. ⚡️ .
On Midsummer Eve it’s light well past midnight! I was able to experience a traditional Midsummer Eve celebration where everyone—even little kids—stay up all night, have a bonfire, and make midsummmer flower crowns.”⚡️ — Isabel Hirama✨ .

How excited? THIS excited! 🙌🏻 Admittedly, I do excite quite easily (because - well, LIFE 💙) but I’m extra excited this morning because I’ve just found out that I’ve been nominated for “Outdoor Personality of the Year” at The Great Outdoors Awards 2018 with @tgomagazine ! 🎉
🐶 2 completely adorable Springer Spaniels are also nominated in the same category as me so I’m not hugely optimistic of winning 😂 But, I am totally chuffed to be nominated all the same 🙏🏻 .
Great to see so many friends up for some well deserved recognition, too - @ordnancesurvey, @ellisbrigham , @georgefisheruk, @katietunn, @lizzie_outside & @jasonrrawles amongst others 🙌🏻 Got a couple of minutes to spare? Please vote 🙂👉🏻
