As some of you may know, I am a person who loves planning and creating lists. Sometimes I wish I was not like this but what can I do! On the other hand, when it is related to travelling, having a good time and enjoying life I don’t think it can be a bad thing right?
For the upcoming summer I have created a list of things to see and do, both locally and internationally, however, I have not locked any final plans or booked tickets yet. So I almost already know what to do this summer and my Continue reading

Last week I travelled to Tallinn for the weekend to see what the Christmas time in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is all about. Even though I visit Tallinn regularly at least a couple of times a year, as it only takes 2 hours by ferry from Helsinki, this was my first visit to the city during the festive season.
