Day trip to Tallinn

Last week, we celebrated TH’s birthday with a day trip to Tallinn in Estonia. Since we moved to Helsinki, it’s so much easier to make a quick trip. This is also our first trip to Tallinn & on a ferry!

It was a beautiful sunny day! We took a ferry leaving Helsinki at 7.30 & reached Tallinn by 9.30. Outside the port in Tallinn, we found this guy selling coffee from a van! coffeeWe walked towards the Old Town in about 15 minutes. tallinnAfter spending a couple of hours in the winding cobblestone streets of Old Town, we crossed over to visit a shopping mall (Viru Keskus).tallinn tramTaxis like this were everywhere.
