Do you know how, when an amazing experience is coming to an end, and you just want it to last a little bit longer, you fill your eyes and your heart with as many memories as you can get in those parting moments? This is what I did, and I also snapped photographs of anything, just to preserve those last moments.

The shadows were falling, it was time to return to Helsinki.

Goodbye Tallinn. It was an amazing experience. I hope I am lucky enough to return one day, maybe to spend a couple days.

    Yes, I know exactly what you mean. I’ve just returned from spending a few weeks in Guatemala, and I did exactly that– filled my eyes and heart and camera card with all that was Guatemalan, to hopefully tide me over until the next time. (It’s already gone. Booo.)

    I love that gatehouse, especially the shot from the inside.
