The old town of Tallinn is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe. It felt good to be back and wander along the twisting streets once more.

"Since the toilets were locked during the seven hour stop, we had to bribe the provodnitsas to use the facilities. Then came the Mongols."

"Hundreds of houses were quickly build, but unfortunately all of it was burned to the ground in 1611 by Danish forces."

"I tried my best to sneak across the building, but the floor revealed me each time. I suppose I would make a lousy ninja."
Memories of Skye
"The countryside is charming and some places even have coffee."
"The area contains 54 excavated bunkers along with gun emplacements, scattered around the town’s most visible landmark."
