Photo of the Day: Estonia Streets
After two months and almost 12,000 entries, our 2009 Dream Trip Contest is just hitting its stride. For inspiration for your own entry, and a chance to win a $25,000 vacation to wherever you choose, read our take on a submission that caught our eye:
The winding alleys of twee medieval neighborhoods are catnip to North Americans surrounded by buildings that are mere decades old. Dream Trip entrant NaomiMarx fell under the spell of the streets of Tallinn on an impromptu trip to Estonia, one that inspired a soon-to-be-finished book.
"I was in the midst of an extremely difficult divorce," NaomiMarx writes in the Dream Trip entry "Crossroads in Life." "A friend mentioned he was going to Estonia for work, so I joined him and explored some of the most magical medieval buildings, some of which were built in the 1200s. Not only was it magical but it also provided a sense of peace that inspired the bulk of ideas for a book I am nearing completion on."
