Relaxed Riga

26 08 2012

We spent three nights in Riga, Latvia which was one more night more than in Vilnius or in Tallinn and that seemed just right.

While it was a group tour, we had lots of free time which was nice as I had time to just walk on my own or do nothing if I so chose.

My hotel room in Riga. Spacious enough for one.

We decided on our arrival night in Riga to stay “home” to eat and home was the 26th floor bar overlooking the city of Riga.

And I wasn’t complaining about the view (though the less picturesque side) from the bar.

I am very partial to this animal. And he was apparently for sale, too. Wouldn’t have taken him home but I must admit he’s my type. ^^

And did you know, Riga was the first city to put up a Christmas tree in 1510?? (So we are told…)

Riga felt very relaxed and public gardens I think have a lot to do with that.

Just another day at the park.
