Today was a fairly casual day without any true plan. That's always a good time when I can sit back and not worry and just wander. Tallinn, Estonia was where we stopped, although it was a bit shorter then the rest of the stops with only 8 hours on land. After sleeping in from the late night before, finally got off the boat around 11am and just meandered. I had no expectations of this country, since I've never even have heard about it before, and it was surprisingly nice and gorgeous. I just meandered for a while hitting the shops. Found lots of little antique shops that if I had more money and space at home, I'd have gone crazy. Lots of Russian stuff and apparently everyone here speaks Russian.

Anyway, met up with the boys for some lunch that was,... kind of blah. No ice, gotta love Europe. They then bailed early back to the ship and I shopped a bit more hoping to find something unique. Alas, nothing intriguing and the clouds were starting to look nasty. Bright and sunny to dark clouds in 3 hours or less. Walking back to the ship, of course I got caught in a down pour and was drenched by the time I got back. Woot!

That afternoon was the disco T Dance. Just another excuse to dance and watch the boys get down. Chilled with the boys and Stephen in his crazy full out disco crazy outfit.
