The Scamp in Estonia

It is no secret that I am a wanderer. I get antsy if I stay in one place for too long. With all of the shit I have had to deal with these last few months with the racists in my grad program, my trip to Estonia could not come soon enough.

I have not spent a Thanksgiving in the United States in a few years, and saw no reason to break the tradition. So, on the 1 year anniversary of getting on a plane to head back to Scotland for my graduation, I got on a plane and headed to Estonia to visit one of my favorite people. Before I left, I planned a hot air balloon ride, a day trip to Finland, and an overnight in Latvia.

Estonia did not disappoint. The balloon ride over the city was freezing, but provided a great view of the city.

Chicken is having fun too.

Susanne and I also went to Catherine the Great’s summer palace to see how the rich people live. It was great walking around in the snow, getting to talk to Sus, and putting some much needed space between me and the United States.

I have a few more days at the end of the week to spend in Tallinn, and I cannot wait to explore the city a little bit more.
