Quickly we tried to reach our final destination in Rudsilla, the second location where all the teams come together. Unfortunately we just arrived around 1 a.m, so the official part of the party was already over. Luckily there was some food from the Estonian buffett left.
The camping place already looked amazing during nighttime, but it was such a beautiful place. In the middle of nowhere deep in the forest the place looks like a fairy, a few gnomes and trolls are waiting just around the corner.
