Off the boat in Tallinn: a pretty brisk breeze. I walked from the port to old town, which is a pretty short walk, and once inside the old city walls, I smiled in delight: It's a charming place.
As I generally do, I spent my day in this new city simply wandering. I had heard there was a view from Toompea, so -- always a sucker for a view -- I headed up.
Along the way, I ran into several groups of school kids wearing reflective yellow vests and traveling in groups -- must have been field trip day!
There are a few different viewpoints of Tallinn once you get to the top of Toompea and they're... okay. I've seen better, honestly, but there are couple of neat churches at the top to look at, too.
I was happy to have some sunshine for my explorations -- wind and cold are made more bearable if you can bask in the sun a bit, too! It's funny, though: Here and in Stockholm, because of how far north the cities are, the sun never gets very high in the sky this time of year. Around noon or 1 p.m., the shadows are still very long, and it feels like evening is already approaching (which it kind of is, ha).
