Tallinn, Estonia

img_8647

Hello! I’m finally back again! Some of you might know that I moved to the United Kingdom last month. I just started studying at Newcastle university. I am studying Japanese language, culture, history, Chinese history, culture and I am also taking an international film and cultural studies modules. So thats the reason why I haven’t posted anything in a really long time. In the beginning of September I was busy with moving in, after that I had a freshers week which was really really fun! After that I just have been studying every single day. I decided to take a break this Saturday and finally start writing again. Although,  I’m supposed to be studying all those kanjis. But I guess I have the whole night for that.

I will finally start posting stories about my summer adventures in Europe! I started traveling right after my final exams (the end of June) and I only got back home in the middle of August. I even missed my graduation. Because I would never miss a chance to travel somewhere. I went to so many incredible places during the whole summer. One of them is Estonia. Actually, it was my first time visiting Estonia. But I loved it ! We spent 3 days in the capital- Tallinn. The weather wasn’t that great because it rained during all those 3 days. But we still managed to visit basically everything there. Of course, the first thing we visited was the Old town of Tallinn.  In my opinion, it’s really different from Vilnius and Riga old towns. It feels like it has more history with a huge amount of historical buildings, churches and cathedrals. Some of those tiny streets remind me of  Italy. You can find something special in every corner.  You can see some awesome art pieces on the Town wall. I enjoyed visiting places like Long street,  St. Catherine’s passage, Town hall square, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Kadriorg Park.  They also have some really cool spots where you can see the panorama of Tallinn. For example, Toompea Hill or my favourite Tallinn TV tower. The height of this tower is 314 m (1030.2 ft). They have a really fancy restaurant inside that tower. We had dinner there and the chef was really nice and he made so amazing vegan dishes and he even made me a brownie with ice cream! The best brownie I have ever had. Of course, we went to the harbour but it’s where we started traveling to other countries. So I will leave that for the next post. img_8635img_8616img_8642img_3167

As most of you know that I can’t travel without my body scrubs. I want to share my new favourite with you. It’s ‘The Scrub bar‘ from thescrubbar.com.au . I got limoncello body scrub because you know how much I love Italy and limoncello will always reminds this amazing country. So, my shower always smells like Italy now. It’s a raw organic handmade body scrub made from all pure, natural and organic ingredients. This company is against animal testing which is incredible and it’s 100% vegan. You should check them out!

  2. We went to Tallinn a few years ago. Weather was very hot. The old town was amazing, as were the places we travelled to round about. Amazed by all the handicrafts and how creative people were. Would love to return.
