After a brisk walk to the local supermarket, a 2km round trip I stocked up on supplies and rearranged my luggage for the fourth time! I was trying to make more space for Jackie and her luggage when she arrives on Tuesday 26th but it still seemed to much with the Tent, sleeping bag and other camping gear, so i decided on a cunning plan. I would check out the nearest International courier office as there is a major International airport in Tallinn.
Anyway back to my chilling at the cabin, it seems the caravan and campervan brigade are very cliche, other than a few polite good mornings, nobody really spoke to me. So I made some new friends.. but they were not that talkative either....
Nick my friend who lives in Germany, says he is starting to worry about the company I am keeping...lol
later on I watched a Finnish Caravaner pull in, unhook the van and then via a remote control park it! Apparently this has been around for some time. maybe I need to get out more....lol
The next morning whilst taking a shower with the usual campsite symphony of guys farting, coughing and spitting, I noticed i had two lumps on my back and on closer inspection it looks like I have been bitten or stung by something. Bloody bugs, I know that Budists don't believe in killing any livinng creature but I am not a budist, so I have now declared war! Chemicals at the ready and full cover of all skin is now required...lol
After setting the GPS for the nearest courier office at the airport I set off and within thirty minutes I was outside the FedEx office at the same time as the sales guy turned up, handy that. The deal was done, money parted and my tent and sleeping bag is on it's way to sunny England.
Whilst sorting my remaining bag out, two guys turned up in a Van, turned out to be Edelweiss Bike Travel with one of the guides and an Australian customer come to collect his bike from customs. They are starting a tour from Tallinn to Bangkok!, had a good chat and swapped "Fasteddy" stickers for a Edelweiss one.
Then it was off again to my digs for the next four days before Jackie flies in, can't wait but in the meanwhile I plan to do a bit sightseeing in "old Tallinn" tomorrow.
