      A basic Sokos Hotel with comfortable rooms. The breakfast buffet isn't anything to write home about, though.

      We eventually got away from hong Kong a bit late due to the typhoon. It was very wet and windy. Had an uneventful flight through the night to Helsinki from where we went to the harbour and got a ferry over to Tallin.
      A 2 1/4 hour trip on very calm seas where we were entertained by the bingo game! Couldnt understand any of it but joined in the …

      ... wooden buildings. The first thing I noticed was that there were some buildings rising over 20 stories. The first one I saw closely was a hotel where all foreigners had to stay during the soviet era. I learned later in the day that the KGB occupied the whole 23rd floor and the entire hotel was bugged.

      After making my way back down, I wandered some more until I wandered past the City Bike office. They offer self-guided bike tours of the nearby Lahemaa national park but only with ...

      ... the up side though, education and medical is free.

      After visiting the historical part of this beautiful city we visited Rakvere Medieval Castle. This Castle dates back to the 13th century.

      On display was an old torture chamber, archery, medieval sword dual, firing of ...

      ... which time I got pelted with rain - but the rest of the trip was dry and the small amount of rain I'd picked up dried soon enough. I pulled into Tallinn and saw a sign pointing left for Tallinn on road E67, and a sign pointing right for Helsinki also on road E67. For a moment I thought I'd booked a ferry for nothing because the sign made it look awfully like there was a bridge or tunnel, but I knew for certain that was not the case. Sure enough the sign to Helsinki takes ...
