Tallinn, Estonia & the Drunk Ferry to Helsinki

Tallinn, Estonia & the Drunk Ferry to Helsinki | Finland | Scoop.it

It was a short adventure in Tallinn, as we had tickets for the 9 p.m. drunk ferry to Helsinki. But, that did not stop us from exploring the Christmas markets and eating at the BEST rated restaurant in Tallinn--no joke.

The alcohol is obviously less expensive in Tallinn and so Finns make the mad dash across the pond to buy their goods. Luckily, we were upwind from the loud, obnoxious (and yes, drunk) teenagers who decided to party in our cozy location on the ferry.

Ah, it's nice to be back in Finland!

Kökar Beach, Åland Islands, Finland

Blink and you’ll miss them. Hopping on the ferry from Finland to Stockholm, the 6000 Åland Islands barely rise above the water. Hardly heard of beyond the Baltic, follow in our footsteps and camp down near the beach at Kökar – it feels like you’ve been transported back to Viking times.
