  4. 21. Välismaal pikemalt viibides hakkad koostama sarnaseid liste, milles mainitu on ka kõik, millest välismaalasega Eestist üldse rääkida saab.

  6. I think Polina is such a pretty name. I knew Estonia was a country, and now I know lots more! Thank you!
    I love #1, the flag, and the forest in winter! What holiday is “June 23rd”? Is that your independence day?
    Thank you for following my blog.
