I see you went to Estonia.I took a look and saw that Tartu is about far from Tallin as it is from Riga.Ciao Daniela

Yes, Youre right Daniela, Tartu are in about halfway from Riga to Tallinn. Because of my late departure from Riga and really boring weather for all the way till Tartu, we (my family) changed our plans to go Tallinn as well and postponed Tallinn town and Saaremaa island visits to later, at spring time.

Cheers, Ainars
