A Saturday in Tallin…..


It was a very sunny Saturday in Tallin.

Apart from the sun and the fabulous architecture of this Estonian City, we also remember the full of fun atmosphere (though we were told that come the evening that fun could become, lets say, rather Boisterous)

It was on the ‘bucket list’ and I guess its worth adding in on the list again.

Wherever you are ….. and whatever your plans….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Tallinn….Away from the Hussle and Bustle

Tallinn, Estonia

The iconic view over Tallinn, just about every visitor is directed or taken to this viewpoint above the town.  Perhaps its as well as most of the streets and squares are, lets say busy.  For some time now Tallinn has been making a reputation as a holiday venue, in particular a weekend destination.  Cheap air flights have been one of the key movers….  so it will be interesting to see how things workout for Tallinn and similar destinations, once the CV19 restrictions are eased.

Despite the high visitor numbers it is still possible to discover those quieter corners of this fascinating old town of narrow streets and what looks like a church on every corner…


Explore at will, but there will still be time for the everyday Tourist scene

Wherever you are…. or wherever you dream of travelling to….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Heading for the Shade………


Heading for a stroll, or maybe a Beer, in the shade on a very hot day in the Old Town  of Tallinn, Estonia.

Thankfully, those tall buildings, that surround the main square and line the streets of the Old Town, do exactly that…provide some welcome shade whilst one explores this ancient and exciting Capital of Estonia.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Saturday Excursion….. Tallinn


Tallinn, Estonia on the shores of the Gulf of Finland

Many of you will know that on Wednesday’s I feature a Favourite Place.  Places that I have visited on many an occasion and am drawn back to like a magnet.

There are though locations that I have only visited once, sometimes briefly, and upon leaving have said…” we must go back “.  Tallinn is one such location where there was just so much to see and explore… that one day was certainly not enough.  I hope we will get back to Tallinn….  in the meantime here is a brief picture tour.

Just a flavour of the busy narrow streets, architecture, mosques and churches with their towers and spires….everywhere a riot of colour.
