Tallinn, Estonia

Wednesday morning we arrived in Tallinn, Estonia. The weather was iffy - but ended up just being cloudy/foggy - no rain, so we were happy! In case you're wondering (and because I'm obsessed with maps) Estonia is sandwiched in between Latvia and Russia. Tallinn is the capital of Estonia and the oldest capital city in Northern Europ. Tallinn's Old Town is a UNESECO World Heritage Site. We ended up just walking through the town and doing some shopping. Really neat little city!
