Tallin

My rare visits to Tallin go always the same way. Every single time I fall in love with the Old, medieval city of Tallin - the narrow cobblestone streets, the colorful buildings, the athmosphere from a world that no longer exists. And later, after hours of walking, my feet are dying slowly and I swear never to visit Tallin again (well, not for a couple of years to come, at least). x)

Our original travel plan was to visit the Kadriorg Palace. I've dreamed for so long of seeing the Palace from inside also, but of course they closed it for restoration for the whole July. So instead, we (meaning me and my boyfriend) just walked around the Old city, without heading anywhere in particular and even without a map. It was actually very nice; not having to rush anywhere, just going where your feet take you, not minding to get a little bit lost.

Here are some pictures, taken with my poor little camera, so no high quality here, but I still hope you can get a glimpse of Tallin's athmosphere from these.






P.S. My original plan was also to wear lolita to Kadriorg Palace - but not going there after all and also having to wake up at five o'clock killed my desire to dress up. :(

    1. I also love it! For us Finns going to Tallin is so cheap that I could go every year, if I wanted to. x)

    1. Thanks! But my camera is really really old and no good at all, so naturally the pics taken with it are not so good either. :P

  4. What makes an old camera bad? Is it broken? I have an 50 years old camera and it still makes wonders.
