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.
