  • A most magical day on a magical vacation was the day we spent in Tallinn, Estonia, on our 12 day Baltic Sea Cruise. Everything about Tallinn was simply lovely. The olde towne itself was like right out of a storybook. It was so old, yet so well preserved, and all of the old building were in use as shops and/or residences. But the very best of all, the most lovely part of Tallinn, were its people. What welcoming, openly friendly people they were!

    I honestly had no idea what to expect in Estonia, in Tallinn. I'd never read much about her, only knew that she was once under Soviet rule, and now was on her own. I learned that prior to the Soviets, many others had ruled over Estonia, for centuries, yet the people there had somehow maintained a national identity and pride, that was ready to emerge when the Soviet empire collapsed.

    After we had taken the double-decker bus around the town of Tallinn, we had strolled through the olde towne, then Kathy headed back to the ship. I wanted to stay in Tallinn as long as I could. I had lunch in a lovely little restaurant, at an outside table, and the server fussed over me so. Making sure that it would be a lovely experience.

    I still find myself walking through that storybook town in my dreams at night. Also, when I find myself daydreaming, my daydreams sometimes find me strolling mentally through the town. It really left a mark on me. Someday, I will go back. Back, to lovely Tallinn.
