Besides Estonian, I can speak only English fluently. I've also learned Finnish and I'm currently learning German and Russian but I haven't had much practice so I lack in vocabulary in all three of those languages. It's still good to know the basic grammatic rules and language structures, for example, because that enables you to learn words more quickly than it would otherwise take.

How hard is it for an Estonian to learn Finnish? To me the languages seems to be pretty much alike, like Czech and Slovak.

I'm sure Hofburg has something do to with it.

It's easy to pick up a decent speaking level from television or living there alone. The Finnish vocabulary shares some basic words with Estonian. There are also many similar or logically derivable words as well as words that are considered archaic in Estonian. It's harder for Finns to learn Estonian than it is vice versa.

If one has a strong knowledge in Estonian grammar, learning Finnish in depth is also a breeze, once you get past the fundamental differences, since word formation and conjugation is similar. Unlike Estonian their everyday language differs a lot more from formal language and understanding that can be harder, though.

From what I've looked into, Czech and Slovak are considerably more similar, as well as written Norwegian and Danish and spoken Norwegian and Swedish.

It wasn't a yellow sign (it was made of wood), but it was an official sign installed by municipality, not just someone, I'm sure about that. And there weren't dozens of world destinations as usually on such signs (like New York, Tokyo, Sydney etc.), just Trebnje, Ljubljana and Paris. And it said just "Paris 1314", not "Pariz/Paris (F) 1314". If you wish, I can take a photo of it tomorrow... if I don't get lost again.

No idea. Somewhere east of Trebnje (or northwest of Novo mesto).

Just two hours ago, very close to my home: a shithead (blue arrow) caused the crash, trying to overpass while the truck was turning left (red arrow):

Wow, that guy must've driven very fast, considering you don't just tip a light truck over like that.

Probably, but his car wasn't so damaged. Luckily no one was hurt.

Over here, in Enschede, we had some freezing temperatures close to the ground a few nights ago. We didn't get snow yet, unfortunately

The same with the rest of Slovakia, but that is 2150 m above sea level and your higest hill (point) has about 300m while soom Slovak cities are in 400, 600 m.

Enschede is located between a stunning 30 and 60 meters above sea level
