This past weekend Liisa and I went to her dad's cottage on Saaremaa. We left the city at 4:30pm thinking the 1 hour drive would get us to the ferry in time to beat most of the rush. If you've evere taken the ferry and not been able to book ahead you realize how naive we were. When we got there the line up was sooo long. We ended up waiting 3+ hours before getting on the ferry and it took us almost 8 hours to get to the cottage. Even worse, when we got on the ferry the line up had grown to about 6 hours long! The ferries here are so mismanaged and the government sponsors a private company that runs it, essentially it's a big, corrupt mess. Thankfully we only had to wait 2 hours to get back on Sunday.

Overall though the weekend was great, amazing weather. Liisa' cousin Taavi was there as well with a couple of his friends, nice relaxing weekend with some swimming, sauna action and a couple of cold beers.

Next weekend I'm going back to Saaremaa, but this time it's for Skype Summer Days. :-)
