San Francisco, CA

I can’t decide whether I’m happy to be heading home or not.  I’m not despondent about leaving Helsinki (I can’t afford to stay here any longer!) but if I were moving on to somewhere cheaper that would be ok. Carolyn came over to the hotel for breakfast and to walk me to the bus.  I’m […]

Helsinki, Finland, Final Day

It’s the last day of my trip, hard to believe tomorrow I’ll be on a plane heading back to San Francisco.

Tallinn, Estonia

Saaremaa Island, Estonia, Day 2

I feel a little better this morning but I’m not 100% by any stretch.  To that end, as we were getting on the bus I saw something fall to the ground in front of Carolyn and stopped her saying “wait, something fell off your face.”  Not “your earring fell off” but “something fell off your […]
