Like I said in an earlier update, it only takes 2½ hours to get to Tallinn from Helsinki (well, depending on the kind of ferry you take - really, it varies between two and four hours) so by 2 pm, we were in Estonia. It was freezing cold that day so we walked straight to Viru Keskus, which is a shopping mall quite close to the harbour. We went to quite a few shops and I ended up getting myself a few warm tops and a pair of red jeans. I can easily spend hours at Viru Keskus as all the shops there are good, and cheap, too. Especially on a cold winter's day, it's nice to just stay indoors like that, even if you're not that big on shopping.

I always love going into the Old Town when I'm in Tallinn. This is the entrance, it's just too pretty! The problem with living so close to Tallinn is that I never spend enough time there. It's always these cruises that only allow you to stay for a couple of hours. The only time I actually spent a couple of nights in Tallinn was when I went to see Madonna there in 2009. Now THAT was an experience I'll never forget, and not solely because of Madonna. I might have to write some more about past trips at some point, too, so just know you have something very memorable to expect :D.

Next up, I've got London this week, then New York in June, and Copenhagen and Göteborg/Gothenburg in July. At least! Stay tuned for more updates :)!
