Flashback: Tallinn, Estonia May 2012

Me in Tallinn, Estonia – one of the maps around the port

One of the stops during our Baltic Cruise with NCL was in Tallinn, Estonia.  My family and I went on a walking tour with SPB tours (company), from the port to the central city is about a 10 minute walk.  Our guide told us that one of the notable inventions in Estonia is SKYPE!  Skype has its IT headquarters in Tallinn.  I don’t remember much from the tour, except that Skype started out in Estonia.

Peeping old man (top left)

The story behind this statue – there was once an old man who lived in this building and peeks at his window. Across his building was a ballet studio and he checks out the ballerinas while they were changing. So, in memory of his death, his wife had this statue built. lol.
