The Alexsander Nevski Cathdral in the old part of Tallin, Estonia


We got up super early yesterday to catch the bus to Helsinki for the cruise to Estonia. It was interesting how many Finns were already drunk by noon on the trip over. The 2 1/2 hour cruise flew by for us though, and then we set out to expore old Tallin. It was freezing, so we stopped in a lot of tiny souvenir shops and took in some churches in order to get feeling back into our fingers. I also realized I really needed a hat. On the way back we got to experience some high quality Finnish karaoke and purchase a lot of tax free booze.

We decided to take the train back to Tampere instead of the bus, so that we would get into town with enough time to still go out to the bar. Our trip was broken up by discrete trips to the smoking room to take some shots so that we could get going as quickly as possible. I learned last night at the Love Hotel that Finnish boys need to get a clue. We Canadians may have been told we dance dirtier than most Europeans, but at least we get to the point. Perhaps its all a part of Finnish women being more equal to men here, but I think I like the system back home a little bit better.

Gingervere is the Middle English origin of ginger. Despite being the go-to word to describe redheads, some definitions of ginger are: spirit, liveliness, vigor, piquancy, enliven, and animation.

I'm a 21-year-old student originally from Canada, but currently on an adventure in Belgium for the semester. This blog will follow me, my musings, and whatever shenanigans I get up to while I travel around Europe and occassionally attend classes.
