BLOGGING WORKSHOP ABOUT ESTONIA
Hi everyone! My name is Greta and I'm about to tell you about my experience in Estonia.
I came here with some people from my school, we were four in total from Bologna, six from Verona, four from Bielefeld and then the estonian students who were hosting us.
We stayed from the 5th to the 11th of May, they told us the weather would be awful and cold, it actually turned out pretty hot and sunny, and we had a lot of fun!
On Sunday night at 4 o´clock I left home, Mesa's parents brought me to the airport and the travel started! We did the check-in, and my luggage was obviously too heavy, so I had to give some of my clothes and food to the others. We took two planes, the firts one to Frankfurt(it took one hour), and the second one to Tallin (thre hours).

At Tallin's airport a woman picked us up and brought us to Pärnu's school, where the headmaster and the estonian families welcomed us and then brought us home. Our travel to Estonia had lasted ten hours, I didn't get any sleep either on the plane, nor on the mini-bus from Tallin to Pärnu, and I just wanted to sleep. But the estonian students had other plans...
The afternoon of our arrival
As soon as we got to Pärnu, I went with the estonian family grocery shopping.
The largest amount of salami I've ever seen!!!
Then we went to Marta's and Kristina's place, we spent there the afternoon (trying somehow to sleep, talking and laughing), and we had a barbeque.

Then we went to the centre of Pärnu, walked around and went to the spa. It has been super fun, and I got sick :(
The third day
The third day we went to school, took part at an english lesson (wery fynny) with the estonian students, and then went to tallinn. The trip there took us two hours, I was super sick and feeling awful
In Tallinn we visited the old town, the new part of the city and the tv tower.
The fourt day
On the fourth day (still sick, felling even worse then the day before), we went for a hike in the bog, and in the afternoon at the adventure parke (beautiful!!!!!)
The trip hasn't finished yet, nut it's time for me to go to lunch (I'm feling better, maybe I'll be able to eat someting after three days...).
Maybe I''ll let you know how the adventure continues, maybe not, anyways... It will continue and I'll enjoy it!
