After leaving Helsinki by ferry, we arrived in Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia just 2.5 hours later. I had made a brief visit to Tallinn last winter and liked it so much that I decided to return for another visit. My parents were also able to make the journey. It was lovely to see them since we live quite far apart, and I missed Christmas this year due to my schedule at the hospital.
Estonia is a Northern European country on the shores of the Baltic sea. It has a population of just 1.3 million people. Their language is very close to Finnish, and therefore it is essentially impossible to learn or understand anything on a short trip. It was nice to learn more about Estonian history on this visit, and it is excellent to see the country doing so well after celebrating just 25 years of independence.
Thanks for the awesome updates! Really glad things went so well! Looking forward to your next visit to Ontario 🙂 xox
It was quite a co-incidence meeting you in Tallinn airport! Hopefully our paths will cross again. Maybe at next years Gatineau Loppet, which we missed this year, since it was on the day we left for the Tartu Maraton.
Quite a co-incidence indeed! I am very keen to ski the classic Gatineau Loppet – still haven’t done the point to point course.
You’ll be welcome to visit us if you ski the Loppet!
It is fascinating how Tallinn changes due to seasons, colorful and warm in summer, subtle and cold in winter. Is there a place in Tallinn that you remembered the most?
