Oh, I have been wanting to visit Tallinn, Estonia SO bad. My reason for wanting to visit - the Old Town looks pretty - and that is a good enough reason for me! It was lucky for me when J was asked to chaperone a sporting even that would be happening in Tallinn this March! Of course I decided to tag along - so I'm off to Tallinn on Thursday. Just like Prague, this will be another trip where I get to wander the streets by myself while J is hard at work. Sorry J!
1) The first thing I'm going to do in Tallinn is take the free walking tour. I took a Vilnius free walking tour from the same company and was incredibly impressed, so I think this will be the perfect way for me to get my bearings of the city.
2) Casey from We Took the Road Less Traveled wrote a really wonderful post about Tallinn that I immediately bookmarked for future reference. Looks like I now get to use her recommendations (I'm especially looking forward to the chocolate shops!).
3) Another gem I found while searching for cool things to do in Tallinn is Tallinn Traveler. The website is hilariously sarcastic and I'm dying to try every restaurant on "The Hipster's Guide to Eating in Tallinn."
4) Like A Local Guide also has a wealth of information from locals on what to do in Tallinn. I'm thinking shopping and eating in Telliskivi would be right up my alley!
Do you have any pointers for my trip to Tallinn?
