CRUISE AND A DAY IN TALINN

June 22, 2015


As you could've read on my bucketlist page already, taking a cruise was one of the things I've wanted to do for a while. I didn't think I would have the opportunity so soon because cruises are usually very expensive holidays. But when I was in Sweden at the end of May (more about this later), my friend proposed a daytrip to Talinn, Estonia. Basically, you spend two nights on the cruise while it's moving and you have one full day at your destination. The best part: it's pretty damn cheap. We had a cabin for four persons and paid about 35 euros each. That included two nights and breakfast on board.



I have to say I'm really glad I could experience a small piece of life on a ship this way because I don't think living on this for more than a few days would be fun for me. Even though this ship was massive, I know it's not the same as those really luxurious cruiseships where you would spend weeks on board. We were on the Victoria I and it's pretty impressive to be honest. It had 8 floors, several restaurants, two clubs, stores, etc. I felt kind of fancy.



This also means I got to spend a day in Talinn, Estonia. Another country to add to my list as well! I didn't really know what to expect because I've never even heard of anyone visiting Talinn or even Estonia but wow, what an incredibly beautiful city. We spent almost all of our time in the old part of town, it looked quite medieval. Small cobblestone streets, towers and churches everywhere. There's even a piece of the wall left. (I had all kinds of game of thrones quotes in my head.) I'll leave you with a few more pictures, you can decide for yourself. Have you ever taken a cruise? Did you ever think of visiting Estonia?
