So, my sis and I we decided on a random roadtrip in Estonia. We borrowed our family’s pride of a car – the immortal Opel Vectra (from probably early 19th century). And we didn’t even book a place to stay. We thought we could sleep in the car if needed or lose some pride and drive all the way back to Tallinn. As it’s only a few hours no matter where you are in Estonia basically. Estonia is cute like that. We did end up at a charming farm-like place at the end though.
The route the first day was; Tallinn to Sillamäe, which is the North coast of Estonia towards Russia. Our sightings for that day;
- Rakvere Linnus (Fortress)
- Saka Mõis (Manor)
- Valaste Juga (Waterfall)
And when we got to the “welcome to mother Russia” part of Estonia, we took U-turn down towards Peipsi Lake. That’s also the area where we spent the night.
The next day we drove alongside the beautiful Peipsi Lake and bought some local fish from a tiny “drive-in” kind of shop. Apparently it’s a thing over there. So good. Totally exotic for us. Then our journey went towards the West. The sightings:
- Norra Mõis (Manor) and Allikas (Springs)
- Paide Ordulinnus (Ordensburg)
