You can check facebook anywhere, just don't drink while you're at it....


Here we were, feeling thoroughly unprepared for Tallinn. After an almost sleepless last night in London we dragged ourselves onto our plane, only to be greeted by men in fluoro 80s tracksuits, mullet wigs and too much bling for that time in the morning. Clearly, the introduction of easyjet flights to Estonia's capital had also opened the doors for hordes of London blokes on their bucks weekends....

Being the birthground of skype, we probably should have guessed, but were still taken aback to find wi-fi hotspots in parks and streets throughout the city. These are apparently part of a 300 strong network throughout the country, enabling anyone to tap into the information superhighway any hour of the day and night... hello facebook!

This wasn't the only surprise in store for us today as we were to find out that there is an 8pm alcohol curfew in this town. We'll be restricted to drinking only on liscensed premises after this time, during which even supermarkets won't sell alcohol for public consumption! So this is where I sign off cos the pub is indeed calling after a day of strenuous sightseeing...
