My name is Kristel. I suppose you could have guessed that by reading the name of my blog but this seemed like a really good way to kick off my introduction 🙂 .
I come from a small island located in West-Estonia, called Kihnu (very special place- Google it!) . As you can see, we even have our very own beautiful traditional outfit that is still being worn!
Even though Kihnu is an amazing place, with great culture and traditions, my destiny had other plans for me and at the age of 19, I bought myself a one-way ticket to London. I had been accepted into some of the best universities in Estonia but wanted to take some time out before continuing my studies and flew out to the Land of Kings and Queens to enjoy my cap year.
Ten years later, I have become a resident in the UK and I only travel back to Estonia to visit my friends and family. Don’t get me wrong, my heart is still and has always been in Estonia but I just felt that the island became too small for me and my wild ambitions.
I have never regret my decision leaving Estonia- those ten years in the UK have changed my life more than I could ever have imagined. Me, a shy girl from a tiny island, became a well travelled fitness model living in Central London! I will write more about my life and adventures in the upcoming blog posts so stay tuned!
PS! I am very likely to update this section soon. Right now, I am only just getting starting with setting up the page and warming up my fingertips :)!
