Saaremaa is an island, part of Estonia, that you take a ferry to get to. The only real city on it is Kuressaare, the island’s capital, which is where most of the photos in today’s album are from. I also took a bus to the village of Kaali there, to see meteor craters, and a bus ride around the Sõrve peninsula. I only spent from 2am to 3.30pm on Saaremaa but I enjoyed it all immensely—especially in the eerily beautiful early morning fog.
