    Kõvaküla

    August 4, 2017 in Estonia ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    So we arrived in Estonia where we were staying the night in a brewery.. :)

    We have been doing a lot of driving recently as we have been doing a bit of country hopping over the past week. I find being a passenger quite tedious so when I am not driving I have invented the game "Stalking Storks".. we first saw these long legged beauties in Slovakia. Perched on top of telegraph poles in the very centres of town, I thought they were herons to begin with. If you know me you’ll know that animals are not my ‘thing’. In Poland, it was explained to us by Mark that they were in fact storks and the government there were giving out grants to people who were able to get them to nest on their land. So started a little competition between Stuart and I.. Shows you how dull it can be driving for hours on end!!

    We broke the drive from Latvia to Estonia up with a stop at a “Hesburger”. We had seen these fast food joints on numerous occasions through the Baltics so we thought we better check it out. A bit like MacDonalds but cheaper, two happy customers.

    Unfortunately the owners of the brewery were not there so we could not have a tour but we had the whole, very large, building to ourselves and beers to try. It was Estonian craft ale and very nice indeed!

    In the afternoon we also headed to the local town for a walk around the lake and got distracted by a disc golf course.. like crazy golf but with a frisbee. We looked far and wide - at each of the supermarkets nearby - but we could not find a frisbee :( so no fun for us but left us wondering whether it was Estonia’s national sport?

    We then drove onward to a local “tourist attraction” that turned out to be a derelict old country house. But on the plus side we randomly found a huge swing in a field which we went on like big kids!

    Probably fortunately for our livers we were only there for one night!

    Viljandi

    July 25, 2019 in Estonia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    In Viljandi wollten wir die alte Burg besichtigen. Jedoch kamen wir mit dem Auto 🚘 nicht wirklich an den Ort heran. Es waren überall Straßen gesperrt. Es schien ein Volksfest zu sein. Nachdem wir uns einen Parkplatz gesucht habe, machten wir uns zu Fuß 👣 auf den Weg. Irgendwann erreichten wir einen Eingang und fragten, was für eine Veranstaltung stattfindet. Es handelte sich um ein Folkfestival. Leider gelangten wir nun nicht zur Burg 🏰😔. Der Eintritt von 35 Euro war uns zu hoch, da wir nicht über Nacht bleiben wollten. Also setzen wir unseren Weg Richtung Nordosten fort.Read more
