If you know me, you’ll know I prefer winter to summer. So the news that we were going to Riga (Latvia) to celebrate my parents 35th anniversary, pleased me no end. After years of crappy winters I’d finally get to wear all the proper winter gear. 🙂
Riga the capital of Latvia, is situated on the Baltic Sea coast on the mouth of the river Daugava. Riga is the largest city in the Baltic states. The Historic Centre of Riga has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the city is particularly notable for its extensive Jugendstil (German Art Nouveau) architecture, which UNESCO considers to be unparalleled anywhere in the world.
