Tallinn

Tallinn, Estonia

Because we were out really late the night before, we slept in before our land excursion to Tallinn. The only problem was, the excursion started at 12:15, and we woke up at 12.

Once officially off the boat we took a walking tour through the Old Town. It was honestly, straight out of a fairy tale. Short medieval buildings made up with city, which was surrounded by the original city walls. It was truly breathtaking. The one thing that made this country truly spectacular was that , basically throughout its entire existence, it was constantly being conquered and taken over. Be it by the Russians or the Germans, the people of Estonia were never truly free until 1994, when the Soviets officially left.

After the walking tour, which was prolonged because one of the men wandered off and we had to wait for him, we made our way to the chocolate factory to learn how to make truffles. It was so fun. So for the next 2 hours we made and ate chocolate.

Back on the ship we rested, got dressed, and went to dinner at Preggo. Afterwards, we went to the onboard broadway show which was a mix of many different famous plays. It was awful. And then, of course, we went to the club, where we ran into our new Colombian friends.
