Travelling Temaricious: Estonia

旅するテマリシャス:エストニア

エラリのラからエにいよいよ北上。色々なルートがあったが、時間もあったし、一番ローカルを味わえるバスにてエストニアへ国境越えをすることに。バスで国境越えは大陸文化。島国の日本では味わえないバス旅が始まる。バスでパスポートを見せチェックイン。5時間ほどの快適な旅。東京から小倉の新幹線が5時間。そんなイメージ。

The trip started from E.LA.LI. Now it is a time to go up to E, Estonia. There were several alternatives for means of transportations I went for bus. It is not only reasonable but thought it would be the best way to feel the ambience of the country taking slow journey. Traveling to different country by bus is special for us Japanese as we live in an island where going abroad by other transportation than airplane is rare. 5 hours travel, just like travelling from Tokyo to where my parents live in Kyushu by train.

エストニアはタリンに到着。北欧っぽいデザインとか色彩が目につき始める。デザイナーという仕事がちゃんと評価されてる国の一つだと思う。

Going tranquil country road, the bus finally arrived at a bus terminal. In Tallin, I started to come across Nordic designs and colours here and there. Like many people admits, there is similar aesthetic sense from Japan that is to find beauty in simplicity.

偶々通りかかったマジパンの有名な店があってそこで買った鶏と玉ねぎ。でも、ホテルに置いてきてしまった模様…. マジパンは東欧、ロシアチックだなぁ。

These are the masipan from a famous masipan shop in the historical city centre. They are so cute! but they seems to be left in the hotel room…

タリン滞在は短かったが気になったものをつらつらと。
最初は鳩?の形をした車止め。

The time in Tallin was short and here are some random things that caught my eyes

Bumpers shaped like birds…

他の店は閉まってるのに夜中まで開いている花屋。

Florists open until midnight though all other shops are closed already…

建物がどれも小綺麗で可愛い。

Buildings like in a fairly tale.


タリン滞在の後はヘルシンキへ。まだまだ旅は続く。

Following day is a journey to Helsinki.
