This weekend Cicci and I went for a cruise to Tallin – Estonia. It was such a great experience! The boat departed on late Friday afternoon and we got back to Stockholm midday on Sunday, just a perfect weekend.
Friday evening was spent on the boat. We had dinner, saw a cabaret show, participated in a music quiz, sang karaoke and shaked a bit on the dance floor. We really had a great time!
Singing "Av längtan till dig"
Who could even image I got the courage to sing live on stage? ;-)
Breakfast buffet on the boat. Yam yam!
We arrived to Tallinn at 9am on Saturday evening and we spend the whole day strolling around the old town. Tallinn turned out to be a very cute and cool city, or at least the old town which was quite big. It was all middle ages inspired and people dressed like Robin Hood welcomed us into coffee places, restaurants and churches. Really cool actually.
We had lunch at a fantastic restaurant. It might not have been the cheapest one but it was worth every penny. As you can see from the pics it was like an old castle having candles as the only light. They only served the type of food as they used to ate in Estonia during the middle ages like wild boar, bear, sauerkraut, beans etc. We ordered lots of different dishes just to try as much as possible and left the restaurant feeling like being pregnant after all the food we had eaten. We also managed to do some shopping :-)
We left Tallinn in sunset, at 6pm so we had 9 hours to walk around which was just perfect. Tired like crazy we relaxed a bit before we got ready for another fun night at the boat.
On the way back we participated in the music quiz again, this time it was a Eurovision quiz where we were supposed to guess from what country the song the entertainer guy sang came from, and what year it participated in the Eurovison song contest. I guessed widely but ended up to win the competition, don’t ask me how. I think I was most chocked of all when the guy held up my paper as the winner of the competition and welcomed me onto the stage to get my price. I won a bottle of champagne, a box of chocolate and another cruise ticket to be used within the next three months. So I guess I gonna plan another cruise in the near future.
