Hoi! Off the radar? Hard to find? Thats me right now, Ive been heading up north now for a few weeks now, heading towards Scando-land… and wanna know why?
Ive made the choice! Im going to take the job in Stockholm! Rockin!
After having months of indecision it all became clear to me a few weeks back now that what I want to do is take the job with the IT consulting company in Sweden, its a very good company, the work is ideal and Sweden isnt a bad place at all to live in, close to the water and a little out of the way, I like this. So I called the company and they still wanted me and thats it, they are organising me a Swedish work visa and Im making my way north to start in a few weeks, lets not rush these things now, Ill only get 6 weeks off a year from here on in, come on! I feel good about my decision, happy Ill have good work, a home and a stable environment, im ready to take the new challenge of NOT traveling now.
So right now Im in Tallinn! Im back in my favourite little country in Europe, Estonia just for a few days as I am going north. I really dig being back here, I remember some of the language, the people are great, the humour comes thick and very black and its always a good time. Heres old town Tallinn, back where it all started, its almost 1 year ago to the week we first took ourselves and Eurotank off the boat from Sweden, knowing absolutly nothing about this country. Its funny to sit in the same spots 12 months on and think about it all, but one thing I am sure of, im glad im still out here getting amongst it, I still love this.
But alas, Im not staying here for long, tomorrow im off to Helsinki and then…. theres another adventure in store but Ill leave that for the next blog.
Heres me beside the memorial to the Russian occuptation in Estonia, its a hot topic right now, they passed a law to rip it down but the president wont sign the bill, its pretty touchy stuff, does it have a right to stay? does this discriminate against russians in EU law? Do the russians outside of estonia even care about it? hmmm
