A l o n g day. Up at 5:45, now in Tallinn at 1:45 (tomorrow!).

Easy to Heathrow from Premier, Bath Road; check in, security, pleasant breakfast in (new to me) T3 (with enormous stainless steel work of art in atrium), essential shopping, meander around the shops, wait at gate, go to board...... only to find our flight left an hour ago!

So, a few loops with Lufthansa and service desk at Explore and..... big sigh of relief.....a booking on evening flight via Frankfurt to Tallinn as before.... at a charge of course but not eye watering.

A few hours hanging around at T3 starting with a double G&T each, followed by lunch at Yo Sushi (including chat with Latvian and Filipino wsitresses). more browsing, shopping, reading and boarding our commuter Friday evening flight to Frankfurt. A mad dash across terminals, more security screening and immediate boarding on flight to Tallinn - which wasn't fully booked. 2 hours later we arrived. Chilly!

Met promptly at airport and whisked to hotel adjacent to D Passenger Terminal: dull looking with drunk on steps being moved by police (gently) and up to our room. Basic, functional and drain smelling (not used this season?) but ok. Now really tired and very relieved. Good night.
