hmm . Today i got thinking about country where i am coming from ... I am guessing i am getting a bit homesick sometimes . And that's why i decided to share some things about country .
Weather in Latvia: Ok i know that you think that that is always freezing , but that is not true all the time ...
Winters are very cold some places -25 degrees , but usually around -16 degrees ( -/+) . Usually first gets cold and everything gets frozen , but later on comes
snow in December Its a beautiful time in country . Everything seems calm . Capital city ( Riga ) becomes Christmas spirited
and in central square usually is ice skating rink
.. You can all kinds of things around ... Outside of Riga you can really go crazy with snow .. Can go to do some sports in Sigulda , or just enjoy views all around country side ...You can ski or snowboard in Gaizinkalns .
There is just so much to see..
You can jump in a car and go to small villages in country . Just stop by in local shops and discover lowest fares ever and very special offers on everything ..
Discover history all around you .. If you pass some kid on the way .. Don t be surprised that he is walking all by himself home in snow and middle of nowhere.. He loves it .. He don t need newest computer game , he is happy as he is .. Maybe the same kid is waving to you when you pass .. his nose all is red and warm look in his eyes..He saying hi to you .. The same as all village this village people would do .. You keep going .. You see castle .. " What? Is it some old museum ? " You think in you head .. Oh no .. Than a school .. Where the same kid who waved at you is learning ... You pull in driveway and walk up the steps ..
You can hear snow crunching under you new boots .. Ups watch out snowball fight is starting .. kids are running crazy around you .. You stand in teachers lounge ... All full with some cakes and freshly made coffee .. Its so warm and comfortable that you feel like you can stay in that sofa forever , but then you suddenly notice something .. Just in front of you , just outside of window is ... no that can not be .. yes it is .. Its a frozen lake and kids are ice skating on it ...
You decide to keep going .. You pull in guest-house which you rented for weekend .. Drive way is terrible .. all full with snow .. You decide to walk till door and get car out tomorrow .. You keep waling and there you see snow angel in snow .. If you would drive with car you would miss it ...
This is just my imagination how your trip to Latvia could go .. I am sure it would be great ! Like a winter fairy-tale ...
What to do and where to go in Latvia :
Skiing in Žagarkalns
Snow motorcycles and other interesting activities
In Riga is a lot of live music places and pubs and clubs are open all night long .. Yo can enjoy all kind of food and get some good deals in shopping ..
How to get there?
Just get flight ticket to Riga Latvia and then 30 minutes by public bus you are in city center . And soon after that you can drink some nice cup tea ...
So much to do - And so little time ..
