Baltic Cruise 2006

This blog recounts our 2006 cruise to the Baltic.

A slightly more formal account, with a selection of the best photographs is being compiled at 2006 Cruise similar to the account of our 2005 Cruise to Ireland, Greenland, Iceland and Norway.

Here my intention is to describe the journey more informally and share some of the still interesting but possibly less spectacular photos.

The nature of the blog means that it is much more open to comments and I hope visitors will share their own experiences.

I apologise to readers for the fact that so far I have only recounted just over half the journey, but I do intend to continue this as soon as I have time.

Hello Gerald,
I just had a quick look at your photos - looks like a very interesting cruise and I just loved the empty shot in the 15th century! I have a set of Matrushka dolls which I bought in Moscow in 1997. They are plain wood with the pattern burnt in the wood and with gold paint and of course blue for the doll's eyes.
Thank you for sharing your cruise.

To Ann and everyone else

I've been so busy with other things that I've not yet had time to update it. I do intend to complete adding photos of the rest of the cruise.

UUUhh, Tallinn, my home town...it's nostalgic and strange to see it through tourist eyes...
Tallinn has hundred faces...yes, even I don't know all. Soon I'm there and try to take some pictures which will be unic and shocking.

What a fascinating journey you and your wife have made! A wonderful report of this voyage. This week I bought two matrushkas at the place where I work at the desk of the Eastern European Mission. Lateron I'll show them on my blogs.
