65 - Sanus Per Aqua - day 1, 28th of August

So, here comes the first post about our vacation in Pärnu, Viiking Spa Hotel, and it describes the first day there.
Pärnu has officially been the Summer Capital of Estonia since 1996 but unofficially for several decades and generations. The Viiking Spa Hotel is situated near the beach and the centre, both only a short walk away.

Our departure from Jõgeva was so chaotic but still it took only approximately 1.5 hours to get there (the distance was circa 160 km long). The hotel consisted of three modern buildings. All of them were interconnected by glass walkways allowing easy access on the premises. All rooms were allergy-free and suitable for non-smokers.

Anyhow, at 15:20 we had our first treatment which was as well our only same treatment. It was peach warm paraffin treatment for hands and the outcome was utterly smooth hands. Soon after that we had a nice healthy dinner and then headed for a quite long walk to the delightful park next to our hotel. For an example the photos of my outfit are taken in front of Tallinn Gate - the only surviving rampart gates of the 17th century in the Baltic countries. Until 1710 these were called Carl Gustav (King) Gates and the gates mark the starting point of the postal road to Tallinn.

In 2010 Vallikäär received a new look: now there are illuminated walking paths on the rampart, a beautiful fountain in the middle of the moat and a wonderful park to attract holidaymakers. Near the gate there is a model of the Pärnu fortress city, presenting the city of that time period, its fortifications and what's left of it.

Our lovely walk there brought back some memories about Pärnu and my trip to Kihnu Island in 2007 when I owned a Chrysler Stratus (check out the old photo!). Oh, I really loved that car then, even though it had some considerable flaws. Anyway, it was superb to be back in Pärnu and enjoy the city once again.

Later in the evening Erik invited me to the lobby-bar of our hotel and we spent some hours there, drinking beer (Erik) and Captain Morgan rum coctails (me). What a great start to our three-day vacation in the Summer Capital of Estonia.

Pärnu - in 2007
I was wearing: dress - Blue Seven; shoes - Tamaris; sunglasses - Haga Eyewear; belt - Lindex; bag - second hand; bracelet and earrings - gifts from my grandparents.

  10. The places you go to are all so beautiful. I'm jealous! The Pärnu, Viiking Spa Hotel sounds amazing and thanks for the pictures. I feel like I was there too!

    A peach warm paraffin treatment for hands sounds heavenly. I want that. I would have loved to see the illuminated walking paths. <3

  31. Mul on sarnaseid musti kleite h2sti h2sti palju. V2ga meeldib must v2rv ja siuksed suhteliselt klassikalise l6ikega kleidid on ilusad ja 'flattering' :-)

    P2rnu on ilus linn. Ma pole kyll seal juba mingi, eeem, 7a k2inud, aga kunagi sai seal pidevalt suviti chillitud :-D
    Yks lemmikuid Eesti linnu.

    Vaatasin ja m6tlesin just, et seda outfiti v6iksid Sa ju t88le ka kanda, eksole? Ilus, v2ga ilus :-)

  41. Miss A - kleidid on tõesti mõnusad. eriti olukorras, kus ei viitsi ülemist ja alumist osa eraldi valida :P ja see konkreetne kleit (leidsin Prismast üliodava hinnaga) on mu suur lemmik. kahju ainult, et Eestis suvi põhimõtteliselt läbi on.. mulle ei meeldi eriti sukkadega käia, seega on kleitide kandmine raskendatud külmadel aastaaegadel. aga suvel võiks tööl kanda küll :)
