Sorry to disappear like that (even though I know I do it quite frequently)! I had every intention of posting last Tuesday evening, as we were leaving on Wednesday morning to celebrate Midsummer’s Eve on Hiiumaa, Estonia’s second-largest island. But when we discovered that tickets to the Wednesday morning bus were sold out, we decide to finish packing in a hurry and take the Tuesday afternoon bus instead. And so it was that on Tuesday night we were already on the island, enjoying beers and bonfires, cursing the mosquitoes, mentally miles away from computers, blogs, and our busy city lives :-).
In short, everything that a proper Estonian Midsummer should be! Sometimes I forget how nice it is to get out of the city for a while, but our trip to Hiiumaa definitely reminded me.
