When I changed the time on my phone last night I did something wrong so alarm didnâ€™t go off. Woke up at 10, instead of 9. No breakfast this morning. Wandered around with a map and no idea where I was; didnâ€™t know where the hotel was on the map, for a start. Around 12 I worked out where I was and decided to walk to the tourist centre and catch a tour bus at 1 pm. Reached the tour centre, booked a seat and then had a glass of wine and open shrimp sandwich and used free wifi while I waited for the bus.
The tour E25, AUD43.46 went for 1 1/2 hours and was interesting. We got out at the church carved into the rock and a monument to Sibelius. After the tour I booked a day cruise to Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, for tomorrow E132, AUD228. I went back to the restaurant and used the wifi again but couldnâ€™t upload any photos to the blog, which was a bit annoying. The Hilton charges for wifi and I refuse to pay.
Went back to the hotel, typed up my blog, watched US Open. Spent some time tidying my case, throwing out papers.
