Tallinn – 3 April 2018

What a difference a day makes! Today it was very cold in Tallinn but the sun was shining.

This is probably my last blog post of this trip. Our plane leaves Tallinn at 6:10 tomorrow morning for the first leg of our trip home.

We spent the day exploring the old town ofTallinn and the Estonian History Museum.

For our last meal of the trip we ate at a restaurant that serves all local Estonian food. We had duck and a typical Estonian desert.

I thoroughly enjoyed the walk back to the hotel in the cold night air.

Riga, Latvia to Tallinn, Estonia

When we arrived in Tallinn today it was snowing and there was a long line for taxis so we decided to walk the half mile to our hotel.

Before we left Riga this morning we walked through the beautiful mall across from our hotel. It is in the middle of old town but from the outside you wouldn’t even know it is there.

We are now directly north of Riga at about the same latitude as Juneau, Alaska. Our bus from Riga to Tallinn left at 11:30.

On our four hour bus ride I watch the movie Sully on my entertainment console. I really enjoyed it.

As we crossed the border into Estonia there were lots of people out ice fishing.

For dinner tonight we walked a few blocks from our hotel and had a great steak dinner followed by a flaming brownie with ice cream. .
