Postcards From Tallinn

In June, Merry Iggy and Kayni visited Tallinn, Estonia. We did a lot of walking around the Old Town. We didn't have an itinerary as we wanted to just experience the culture and the town on our own pace.

Here are a few photos from our adventure:

 Merry Iggy enjoyed the narrow streets of the Old Town.

 Merry Iggy poses at the memorial for MS Estonia that sunk on 28 September 1994 in the Baltic Sea. This unfortunate event claimed 852 lives and was one of the worst maritime disasters of the 20th century. (Source)

 We also climbed the narrow and tiring stairways of St. Olav's Church.

Although the climb was exhausting, the view of the Old City is magnificent.  This is our favorite view and we spent at least half an hour just staring at this Old Town.

After the walking and sweating, we proceeded to eat lunch and shop. A perfect day in Tallinn indeed.

I love the 'not having an itinerary' part--it makes traveling more fun, and opens eyes to unexpected surprises! :D

I like how you put a piece of plastic underneath her feet there at the Estonia sign. Gotta stay dainty despite all these travels! :)

And those houses look like storybook houses. :)
