Straight off a plane and to the rehearsal studios to meet the team.

First impressions of Estonia from the back of the minibus are far from expectations. Tallinn is a modern, fast developing and picturesque city. I was expecting to see stereotypical ex Eastern Bloc but instead was greeted by something very Scandinavian.

Beautiful old buildings surrounded by new, smart developments sit either side tree lined streets. The view out to the Baltic sea on this lovely, warm summer day is stunning although Tallinn being the busy port that it is, means an unfortunate smattering of container ships.

Today is a chance for introductions as I wait for my kit to arrive.
