Travel memories 20

No travel in sight, so I am going to post photos of lovely places I have visited. I will keep it simple, lots of posts, less words is the theme in these posts.

Sometimes you do not need to go far to experience something nice. Old town in Tallinn, Estonia is a lovely place to visit.

View over the rooftops

Tallinn

I love the sea, beaches, forests, mountains, countryside and lovely cities and the people in them. Colors; blue, green, red, white, yellows and what ever you can find around you. I love beauty and these photos remind me of beauty I have seen.

Welcome to my travels, some of them you might seen before…well, that’s life! Let’s go with the flow…

Two towers

Still looking over the roof tops, these two towers near and far, with slightly different angles.

Monochrome Madness (18)- Old Tallinn Town

This is my week 18 submission to the  Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky.

 

These are taken from The Towers Square in Tallinn. All Photos can be enlarged by a click.

Built up from the 13th to 16th centuries, when Tallinn – or Reval as it was known then – was a thriving member of the Hanseatic trade league, this enclosed neighbourhood of colourful, gabled houses, half-hidden courtyards and grandiose churches is, quite rightly, the city’s biggest tourist draw. And the fact that it’s all neatly packaged within a mostly intact city wall and dotted with guard towers gives it an extra dose of fairytale charm.

Tallinn Old Town is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
