        ... was good. It just so happens that the station is near the city market, which is one of the largest bazaars in Europe. I was able to take a walk through but did not want to buy too much.

        I walked back to my hotel to eat my free breakfast, shower and pack. Because my bus didn't leave until 12:30, I had a solid 2 hours to walk around the old town. Let's just say this breakfast was not up to par with Glockengasse. I ...

        Yesterday i spent several hours exploring old town-the historic section of Tallinn dating back the 13th century the winding cobblestone streets take you past half hidden lanes of artisans shops and coffeehouses. In the central square is the Town Hall which dates to 1404. There is also a Dominican monastery that was founded in 1246 as well as lutheran and Orthodox churches And of course there are lots of souvenir shops ...

        ... the Finns boarding with little trolleys loaded with six slabs of beer or cider, and all kinds of stuff in those backpacks and rolly bags! On the ferry we grabbed a nice big semi circular seat with table and settled in; damn the phones have run out of power! Vicki had a snooze, time laboured by. We tried to name all the states of the USA to pass the time, made 45 that was OK. Eventually we made Helsinki and headed to the tram stop to catch the 6T that would go past our hotel. After ...

        ... everyone probably knows I saw more Christmas markets this year than anyone in history, I think, so this wasn’t particularly unique to me. The night picture, however, of the Christmas market in the main square looks like a postcard. There was a kids’ choir singing at the time, and the whole scene with the music, cold weather, and picturesque town square exuded the Christmas spirit...even though the choir wasn’t exactly the ‘cream of ...

        ... nice traditional Glogi (im relying on you to correct this!) from the Christmas market.  After this we wandered around the cobbled streets of Old Town Tallinn, exploring the little nooks and cranny alleyways and desperately trying not to fall over on the snow coloured cobblestones. We then decided that as we wanted to go to Narva, the Russian border town, we should find the right bus station and buy tickets. Some questionable map ...
