Yes, we heathen Estonians take great pleasure in calling our traditional Yule food “blood sausage” instead of the more politically correct “black pudding”.


After all - this delicious wurst in crackling casing IS made with fresh blood, minced meats, barley and secret herbs.

We, the oldest peoples of Europe, who have continually inhabited the same territory on the shores of the Baltic Sea for over 10 000 years (according to various archaeological excavations and carbon dating of artifacts), and proud of our Viking heritage, do enjoy this “gruesome” delicacy. 



Mary was born in New York City on September 5, 1958. The fourth of Elmar and Joan Sepp's six children, her love for words and interest in culture and travel were apparent from early childhood.


Blessed with a ferocious love of humanity, Mary was driven to learn languages, travel to distant lands, and share the things she'd learned along the way.

The Road to BERRICHI



Berit Joosep


December 3, 2020

An accountant by day, and a herbal alchemist by night, Berit Joosep was living the  normal life of a working mom of two.


She had no prior experience in the world of cosmetics.


She did not set out to create an innovative skincare line. It just happened.

On the way, she learned about chemistry, about business and about herself.


She learned to push her boundaries beyond points she had not known before.



A monument marking the boundary where Saaremaa islanders begin to pronounce the unique Estonian vowel "Õ" as "Ö" was unveiled this past week.


The challenge of having to cut through bureaucratic red tape was worth it, since the islanders now have a new attraction that is both deeply meaningful and unique.


More on the opening of the monument here.
