While I was studying abroad in Sweden, a group of us took a two-day cruise ship to Tallinn, Estonia on a free weekend. Estonia seemed like a hidden gem. I especially loved the medieval structures and the view of the sea on the way there. YAS. It reminded me of something out of Game of Thrones. The cruise ship (Baltic Queen – Tallink) was clean, fairly roomy, and had the most amazing mixed drinks! YUM. *The cruise ship also provides some accessible friendly rooms*
Once in Estonia, we had a tour line up, however, about 15 minutes in, the group decided to take our own tour and get lunch. The tour we originally were on was found using a simple Google search. We stopped at a pizza place, it was okay, but if I visit again, I want to go somewhere that has food more particular to the country.
One of my favorite parts of the trip was finding a bookstore that carried the Harry Potter series. I was already WAY over budget, so I decided not to buy it, but I love collecting the series in different languages. I definitely bought the Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone in Swedish! The cover is beautiful!
A friend and I separated from the group and searched for some of the hidden treasures in Old Town. We were really excited to see some of the medieval structures. I hope to visit again!
