  • Description


    We are family with 2 boys. We live in a quiet village 60 km from Tallinn. We are starting to build our own house. The first building was sauna. We already have a small vegetable garden and some apple and plum trees. We have a lot of woods and untouched nature in Estonia. One of our hobbies is to walk in the woods and take nature photos.
