It was so quiet last night. While my hostel in Tallinn was in a quiet section of Old Town, you could still hear the low buzz of the city outside. But in Kuressaare it was silent after I had turned the light out. I slept a solid 7 and a half hours, only waking up because the blinds in the room let in so much light. It felt good to not be constantly woken by creaking beds. The breakfast provided was even more Spartan than the hostel itself (i.e. there weren't any) so after ...

July 4-6, 2014 - Kuressaare, Estonia
July 4, 2014 - USA Independence Day was spent by me madly dashing about the Island of Saaremaa off the west coast of Estonia. I had read of a few "must sees" in the Lonely Planet guide book and so I wanted to get a bit outside of the town of Kuressaare where I am staying. I didn't want to rent a car (probably should have) and the local buses do not run frequently. So at the tourist center I asked about this ...
