Welcome to Estonia!
With three tier point runners now out of the plan (trust me – this number grows over the weekend), we pondered how to get to the old town. Uber of course is our friend here because we can fare split.
Except the fare was €6, and one person offered to pay for all of it… even though there were three of us aboard. Which was very kind.
With the Uber dropping us off in Old Town Tallinn, we all went our separate ways (with some of us meeting in the morning). I decided to explore the old town whilst the light was reasonable… and try not to get too frozen in the process
I failed at one part of that. For the rest of it, its pictures with commentary
The Christmas tree in the town square
Perfect for kids
This sums up the place when you go away from the main square – quiet and snowy.
Flowers for sale.
I just love empty alleyways like this.
Back in the old town square.
Roadtrain passes by .
Much more active at night
Local performances that made Eurovision look good.
The hard art of shopping.
Well named shops number 1…
Well named shops number 2
Well named shops number 3…
And what the hell – number 4.
Sayings to live by.
And for the girl who has everything – A glass slipper.
I’ll be honest – after a few hours walking around my legs were pretty much chilled to the bone. It was time to head off to hotel… to warm up.
