  1. Now that I’ve looked at it at home I’m not sure it’s obvious my shoes are glowing. So in case you can’t tell I’m slap bang in the middle of that ugly lot in the second photo.

  2. BBB – thanks for pointing that out, I just assumed it was a place and didn’t even think it might be somewhere tourists would go.

    Are you from Estonia then? Looking at your blog I’m pretty confident you’re not English πŸ™‚

    Hope you don’t mind but I edited your post cos the url messed up the page a bit.

  3. lol damn how every friggin thing for foreigners seems to be funny πŸ˜› well i live in estonia, but first time i see that kind of a joke πŸ™‚ oh well i can prolly live after laughing my ass off but still πŸ™‚

  4. Syxxpacc – I must admit I was a little tipsy when I saw that sign so it was obviously a lot funnier then, but I thought Estonia was a lovely place. I didn’t see much of Estonia outside of Tallinn but what I did see was lovely, especially the old town section.

    As for silly place names, England has plenty of it’s own πŸ™‚

  5. ye i know πŸ™‚ I’ve been to London once πŸ™‚ i also noticed some weird names but hey πŸ™‚
    But ye the old city is the best part of estonia πŸ™‚ so u pretty much saw it all πŸ™‚ but then again, there are other cool places here πŸ™‚

  7. You realize that drinking isn’t good for you, either, right? Anything worth doing in life isn’t good for you, so you may as well do something fun before you kick off. Oh, and hookahs are probably a bit worse for you than cigarettes, but they’re meant to be smoked in social situations, as an occasional activity, so they probably end up doing less damage in the long run. Also, if you smoked enough you should have felt a bit of a buzz – that’s what attracts people to hookah, for the most part (apart from the fact that it smells/tastes really nice, if you have good tobacco, whereas cigarettes…don’t). πŸ™‚ Sounds like a fun trip though!

  8. Pascal – yes, I#m well aware that drinking isn’t good for you. I didn’t know that Hookahs were worse for you than cigarettes though. We only did a single Hookah before going to a restuarant for a meal so I suspect I didn’t use it enough to get the buzz.

    FWIW I have never smoked, and I rarely drink now, although it is nice to occasionally πŸ™‚

    And yes, it was a fun trip πŸ™‚

  9. Old post but I just wanted to add that hookahs are in no way more dangerous than simple cigarettes, that is just crazy talk. Hookah tobacco contains a lot less nicotine – cigarettes contain different substances that cause it to burn faster. Hookahs filter all the smoke through water and charcoals are specifically designed to not give out any dangerous chemicals.

    I’m glad you liked my home country Estonia, randomly found your blog from google.

    1. Thanks for the extra info regarding Hookahs.

      We actually now have a full office in Estonia with about 15 staff and I’ve visited once more since I made this post. I still enjoy visiting every now and then.
