the rest of my time in helsinki was spent walking around the city, taking silly photos, going to some cool bars, and hanging out with my friend eva and a couple of other people. i got kind of lazy with helsinki … didn’t really look into things to do ahead of time. didn’t travel outside of the city. just hung out … which was nice in some way. i met some new people. eva took me on a really beautiful walk around the water and through a park one day … really enjoyed that. there was this really great bar that we went to one night. it’s called bar llamas … i think that all the random decor in the bar came from mexico. it was cluttered with weird and neat stuff. and there were swings at the bar! it was small but the atmosphere was great. i like finding places like that during my travels. went to this really cute cafe yesterday before getting on the ferry to estonia. it’s this tiny blue shack sitting up on this hill that looks off onto the water. eva and i had coffees and pulla (finnish dessert bread) and enjoyed the sun for a bit. so now i’m in estonia. fabio and i went out last night and had a blast! i really like estonia already … it has this medieval feel to it. love all the old buildings and cobblestone roads. it’s raining today so not sure what i’ll do. maybe just relax, get some things at the market that i need, and do some laundry.
