I'm not going to go into depth about Helsinki. That post can wait until I return.
Instead... Now, I know that people think I'm crazy to travel to northern Europe in the middle of winter. "Why not Malaysia? Or the Philippines?" I've been asked. Heck, even I questioned my sanity.
I just walked through the town square of Tallinn's old town. Built somewhere around the 1300s, snow was falling gently and the streets were nearly empty. It looked like a fairy tale come to life. I've never experienced anything like that before.
That's why I came here.
