The Amateur Traveler talks to travel writer Jeanine Barone about Estonia.
Estonia is a small forested country with picturesque islands, medieval fortifications, a thriving design community, a great restaurant scene, and a young and vibrant culture.
Estonia only recently regained its independence from the U.S.S.R. (1991) but is thriving and filled with innovation. This interview, like all the Amateur Traveler interviews, was recorded with Skype… which is headquartered in Estonia.
We talked about hotels, restaurants, guide books, wine bars, and chocolate.
