Tallinn, Estonia

I can’t believe the trip is winding down.  Today we’re heading back to Tallinn for our final night.  And some final shopping.  It was so foggy when I woke up that for a minute I thought I was in San Francisco.  As we drove to the ferry it was still foggy and at times we […]

St. Petersburg (Са́нкт Петербу́рг) to Tallin

Traffic is notoriously bad in St. Petersburg so I had a 7:30 am pickup to ensure I would arrive at the bus station in time for my 9:00 bus.  This morning it took all of 10 minutes to get to the bus station.  Amazing what no traffic does for a commute.  Nobody at the Bus […]
