Random Vacation Photos From The Baltic

Do you ever look through your travel photos and find some super random ones in there?

Sometimes I spot paraphernalia in foreign countries that I’m not interested in buying… but am amused enough to snap a pic!  If you’ve been hoping to spend the night with Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, these pillows (from the outdoor market in Helsinki) might be for you:

I’ve seen llamas, snakes, and birds on the sidewalks, but St. Petersburg outdid all of that with this animal below:

Is it even safe to own a bear?!  Ohmigod.

While we’re on the topic of interesting things in St. Petersburg, Kimmy and I walked behind these twins and couldn’t stop staring.  They were mirror images of each other!  Isn’t dressing alike cute only ’til about 7 years old?

At Peter and Paul Fortress, we spotted the sign below.  It might have been easier to just tell us what we are allowed to do.

If you’ve ever wanted to be the King of the (porcelain) Throne, you might like what we spotted at a Russian restaurant:

The ultimate in randomness, however, probably goes to this duo which we spotted in Tallinn, Estonia.  I still have no idea what Shrek has to do with Estonia, but Kimmy did say Tallinn reminded her of an amusement park (case in point below):

Jurmala, a seaside resort town in Lativa, is the spa capital of the Baltic, and anyone who is anyone heads there for the weekend… and apparently aren’t shy about showing it all at any age!

And finally, when Kimmy and I travel together, we swap photos every night.  Sometimes her photos just make me laugh.  These two were taken while walking through Helsinki:

On that note, I’m speechless now.

Tammy – I have no idea why he is in his uniform! Believe it or not, this was just 1 of several pics I had of guys in the shower with all their clothes on… and they all look just as eery and creepy. LOL.

Love the idea of a post of random pics- I have many of the same that I always don’t know what to do with. Also, I feel like that guy in the shower is a dead ringer for Prince William- with slightly more hair and a goatee. What do ya reckon?

I saw that bear, too! Have never heard of Jurmala, however, and as a spa fan it’s next on my list. I’ve already planned out my wardrobe. Jeans. And a bra. Fun post.
