Monthly Memo – I’m officially unemployed

Well, this is an awkward one. I bet you thought this monthly memo would be just another life update from quarantine, but really it’s a ‘my first month as an unemployed person’ on top of that! Oh, the joys. Life is weird right now. I’m making noodles to eat while I write this because I have such a hard time wrapping my head around all the little things I need to say. Snacks make it easier. This is your 1 minute warning, if you don’t have a snack, go get one! Then, read on.

Tips For Slow Travel in Tallinn x TBCo

For a lot of people, travel has become a game of seeing how many boxes you can check… This is not for me. Slow travel, on the other hand, the conscious opposition of this busy body travel, is right up my alley. It’s about mindfully traveling in a way that lets you tap into the local culture. I didn’t know there was a word for this kind of travel until I perused the Tartan Blanket Co. blog! So, when planning the ultimate slow travel trip to Tallinn, with its medieval old town and colourful cobbled streets, I got in touch with my fav people at TBCo. Slow travel and the colsie TBCo. ethos go hand in hand. We partnered up to bring you the best tips for slow travel. Plus, their products look amazing against the pastel Tallinn cityscape! You’ll see a lot of fabulous woolly products in these photos, these were borrowed from TBCo.
