How to spend three days in Riga

For this 3 days in Riga itinerary, I'm assuming that you'll probably be arriving on a Friday evening and have to head home on Sunday. For that reason, day one is quite short. It allows you to settle into your hotel, unpack, freshen up, take a wonderful walk through the streets and then enjoy dinner and some great drinks. ...

14 things to do on a weekend break in Riga

Whilst attending the first-ever Women In Travel Summit in Europe, I had the absolute pleasure of spending a couple of days exploring the beautiful city that is Riga. Having never visited Latvia before, I was super excited to spend a couple of days exploring both a new city and a new country. Then again, who wouldn’t be?...

48 Hours in Riga - Where to eat, sleep & drink

Compact, very walkable and a mishmash of many striking architectural styles: the result of having been ruled across several centuries by the Germans, Swedish and Russians, Riga is one of those rare few cities that quickly gets under the skin, just by walking its streets and observing its architecture and its complex layers of history.It was one of the first cities I visited as a student back in the early 2000’s when Ryanair launched a direct route from Glasgow and remains a sentimental...

'Latvia Itineraries', my new travel guide to Latvia

I had the luxury of spending a whole month in Latvia in Autumn last year. Most of the places I visit for the blog, I’ll usually spend a few days or a week at most so a whole month was a real luxury. I tried to spend my time wisely and explore as much of this wonderful country as possible within that 1 month. One of the fruits of my micro adventures across Latvia is this new little e-book: Latvia Itineraries which you can download today for free from the blog ( click on the image on the right...

48 Hours in Liepaja, Latvia’s ‘Windy City’

The sun came out and the long towering pine trees were dead silent. The deep blue sea in the distance glowed in the late autumn sunlight. What a difference a day makes. Barely 24 hours ago we had arrived amidst swirling gusts of rain and strong winds to Liepaja, Latvia’s third largest city located on the sandy fringes of the Baltic Coast about 200 kilometers west of Riga. The rain was ok but oh boy, that almost vertical wind lashing into my face…it reminded me a lot of Edinburgh....

Beer, nature and a bit of baroque : 24 hours in Valmiera

Continuing my series of stories from Latvia…. after raving about the peaceful and offbeat charms of Jelgava last week , I have another charming-not-so-well-known-town of Latvia that I’d love to share with you. The name of the town is Valmiera. Valmeira is 62 miles northeast of Riga and lies right beside the river Gauja on the fringes of the Gauja National Park. Just like Jelgava, the town has a relaxed and down to earth vibe which is a nice contrast after the hustle and bustle of Riga....
