Day 5 Tallinn Diary

Day out in Pirita

sunny 25 °C

Hello everyone,

Had Spa treatments this morning, see before and after photos. I think I looked just as fabulous before as I did after!

Had a lovely day out in sunny Pirita which is just up the coast from Tallinn. Katie as usual got the transport sussed pretty quick so we got a bus straight there! We walked along the river to the marina, then along the breakwater which was a bit breezy but then we are both windswept and interesting these days!

Found a beach with a nice hotel. Dead lucky cos it was happy hour. We had lovely salad and a few beers. Bill was only 13 euros. The added attraction was a plumb man in budgie smugglers! Cracked us both up. Sadly no photo as he clocked us and put his pants on! Shameful I know.

Also saw St Bridgets Convent, kinda run down!

Got bus back to the hotel for much needed pint in the pool!

Night 4 Tallinn Diary

Tallinn

storm 21 °C

Hello everyone!

Thanks for tuning in!

Our 1st night out in Tallinns Old Town was fab! Ate at the only Bistro in Estonia. Sat outside, great views! Unfortunately an electric storm hit and it started to pour down. We finished our meal inside. Tiger prawns in garlic and chilli, delicious. 4 huge prawns , 8 euros.
Walked home in the rain but it was still very warm and pleasant.

On way back 2 young men pretended to accost me in the street, which Katie found highly amusing, bloody young people!

Day 4 Tallinn Diary

Tallinn sightseeing

sunny 27 °C

Hi all,
Our hotel is beautiful, modern, hi tech and spacious. Walked into Tallin old town. Amazingly well preserved medeival buildings- very pretty. Had a couple of beers drunk from earthenware tankards and served by young people in medeival costume. Katie wants a pair of the funky winkle picking shoes!
Did some more mooching around the town and saw the magnificent Russian built Alexander Nevski cathedral with lots of icons and onion domes. Managed to take a photo of a wedding that had just taken place there - cute.
Wandered back to the hotel for a siesta.

TTFN
Kate and Chris

Day 3 Tallinn Diary

Recovery Day

sunny 27 °C

Hi all!

Day 3 + not good! Miraculously we made the flight. Some rushed packing and random objects left behind like pyjama bottoms, eyeliner and common sense.
Slept on plane severely hung over. Arrived in Tallinn on time, straight onto number 2 bus to Ferry Terminal then dragged suitcases over rough ground in the sweltering heat. Eventually recognised our hotel and checked in. Much needed shower and long sleep!

Hotel is fabulous. Whole of Day 3 a bit of a write off!
