We're currently in Tallinn, Estonia, staying in our friend Olga's flat about ten minutes' walk from the old city. It's a lovely city which retains its timbered old houses and towering church spires. Having a flat to ourselves is particularly nice after all this time on the road, and a high-speed Internet connection to boot.

Olga's parents took us around the city for some sightseeing, to see the beaches and an old convent as well as spectacular views of the old city. We spent a day at home doing bugger all, which was necessary to help us recover from the last month of madness.

Today we're going to the beer festival, billed as Scandinavia's biggest. Should be loads of fun!

On Sunday we're heading off to the island of Saaremaa for a couple of days' camping before heading South into Latvia.
