My Travel Bucket List for Summer 2017

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

Year 2016 has nearly come to an end so let’s stop and look back at the highlights of the past year.

7 Places in Tallinn to Get into the Christmas Spirit

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. During the weekend I did lots of great Christmassy things and want to share my best experiences and best places to soak up Christmas spirit in Tallinn.fotor_148171491614737

1. Tallinn Christmas Market

After dropping off my bag at the hotel I headed to the annual Tallinn Christmas Market held at the Town Hall Square in the very heart of the medieval Tallinn Old Town by the majestic Town Hall. This is definitely the best place Continue reading


10 Things to See and Do in Tallinn’s Hipster District of Kalamaja

Kalamaja, a former fishermen’s district, today one of the trendiest areas in Tallinn, is most definitely the place where I want to hang out when visiting Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. Here you can find local living, abandoned factories as well as off-beat cafes, restaurants, trendy boutiques and a lot more. My favourite things to see and do in Kalamaja are as follows, if you get a chance, go and explore!Tallinn_TelliskiviLoomelinnak

1. Shop like a Soviet at Balti Jaam Market

At Balti Jaam Market you can truly shop like a Soviet in the old times. Here they sell anything and everything you can possibly imagine – from boat engines to antiques and from second-hand clothes to bullet cases. They also have the cheapest prices for fruit and vegetables in the city. Balti Jaam Market is a sight on its own, it can be depressing and Continue reading


Bohemian Kalamaja – the ‘Soho’ of Tallinn

The quiet former fishermen’s district of Kalamaja is today one of Tallinn’s last remaining areas with a hodgepodge of old wooden houses and old-fashioned industrial complexes. The neighbourhood has recently seen a trendy revival, similar to what happened in the Soho districts of New York and London, even though on a smaller scale. Kalamaja has developed a bohemian atmosphere and become a popular residential area and meeting place for hipsters, trendsetters, artists and young creative people of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia.


Today Kalamaja houses trendy boutiques, flea markets, plenty of excellent restaurants, eateries, pubs and the newest coffee shops of Tallinn, mostly frequented by locals. Continue reading
