Tallin, Estonia

We recently were told that Disneyland was inspired by ESTONIA. We can see why. It was a fairytale. Everything was so colorful and cheery just like the happiest place on earth. Even the doors were detailed exactly like the doors in Fantasyland. Estonia was my personal favorite stop on the cruise. The chocolate was out of this world, the architecture was beautiful and the company wasn't so bad either.
It was a great day!

These medieval towers welcomed us right in to the old town of Tallin.

...we walked through several fun ally ways...
...to find this tiny chocolate shop that my brother and his wife went to a year ago.
They swore we'd never find it....we did, we conquered and we
We came across lots of locals dressed up for their festival.
We enjoyed the roasted ginger and pumpkin nuts that we bought from this woman.

WE LOVED our souvenirs!!!!
WOOL WOOL and more WOOL!
...and i cannot get enough of this picture of the boys trying on all the different wool hats...
it makes me belly gut laugh out loud...
Off to St. Petersburg, Russia

I think I would rather go there than Disneyland; it's beatiful! What a fun trip!

I concur- I would go to Estonia over Disneyland ANY DAY! Disneyland is great and all, but hello- Europe and picturesque and adventures? (But I think we need you guys as our tour guides- you always happen onto the coolest places, events and people!!)

Love the hats the best too!! Estonia reminds me of Teledo in Spain but in brighter colors...their claim to fame was marzipan. They had marzipan creations in all the windows...tried a sample...chocolate is much better ;)
