6:30am this morning I touched down in Sydney after an easy 24 hours in transit. I got on in Tallinn at 23:00 after a rather teary goodbye. Shit I really love my crew in Tallinn and I miss them all so much already. When people ask "why are you in estonia?" the easiest answer is to just hold up a picture of them, we had some good nights out, Matic and I hit the town in Tartu and then Nils came from Denmark and it was fun all round
Ele and Kalle wanted some Estonian chocolate and some Estonian booze so I packed the chocolates in early and got a bottle of "Vana Tallinn" at the duty free so I could carry it on. I was taking a risk and unfortunately it didnt pay off, when I tried to get on the plane in Bangkok I was refused, even though the bottle was sealed. Not wanting to let some fine Estonian liquor go to waste, I set about drinking what I could. Now Vana Tallinn is like Baileys, more a drink to be mixed or sipped slowly… when the monks first brew it how many centuries ago, necking it at an airport departure lounge probably wasnt in their minds however I gave it the best go I could
I tried my best.
So before I went to get on the flight, it was me, sid james and the better part of a bottle of vana tallinn.
I met some cool Austrians in the departure lounge too, nice people and Ill hopefully see them again in a few days. I slept on and off for the last 6 hour flight, no doubt the vana tallinn helped with this too.
Now its off into a bright Sydney morning. Thongs, boardies, cafe breakfasts in the warm morning sun by the beach. Welcome to Australia.
