Bright in Estonia

After Helsinki, I took a short ferry ride to the first Baltic state of my trip: Estonia. I wanted to visit Estonia’s capital city Tallinn after learning about its fascinating history and medieval heritage. While I was in Tallinn I stayed at a hotel in Old Town, the medieval heart of the city. This small part of Tallinn is surrounded by castle walls and is home to the world’s best preserved medieval streets and buildings. Long story short, my experience here was truly unforgettable. Sleeping and waking up within castle walls made me feel as if I had stepped into a whole different dimension. I spent hours and hours wandering around the old streets of Tallinn, and I can still hardly believe that there’s such a place on earth where it seems as if time had never passed.

Prior to Tallinn, I imagined Medieval architecture to always be grim and grey. I was surprised to discover that Tallinn’s medieval buiildings actually comes in a wide range of colours, and I even spotted some vivid colour stories that I had never seen before. Below are just a few of the sights that caught my eye. The inspiring colours that I saw in Old Town encouraged me to dress the part, so I paired my green gingham shirt with my yellow pants for a day in medieval wonderland.

    Amazing pictures in this post Justin! Like I’ve already said repeatedly, I’m so jealous of your travels all over Europe– it’s like I’m witnessing the fashion blogger version of Globe Trekker or something haha. While I may be envious, I also don’t want your travels to stop because I enjoy looking at your posts and IG pics so much and reading your cool little captions about the different places you went to. Seriously amazing work!

    Oh and of course you look incredibly stylish everywhere you go, adore these mustard pants and those very awesome shoes! And does it ever get any cooler than Ted Baker?

    P.S. Happy Canada Day (the west coast misses you too haha)!

    Well aren’t you quite the dandy world traveler 😉
    Love this outfit, especially the pants. Besides the awesome mustard color, I like how cuffed them and essentially turned them into capris. I have a few pants that I regularly do that with.
