Robbo and Anna’s Xmas trip to Latvia

9 December 2017

The beautiful architecture of Riga
Arrived in Riga to find our cute apartment in Latvia style block with super strong 24/7 heating. First night out in locals bar with Latvian beer, good music and classic drink guy who eventually fell asleep and then hugged the barman as he was thrown out! 😂 Full day of sightseeing trying to get heads round the street geography! Beautiful buildings, Dome Sq Xmas market with “mad monks” serving hot wine and pork from open fire pits. Xmas rabbit market was fun!! Proper meals for lunch and dinner were a nice novelty for a Xmas trip! 😁 Quick go on Santa’s sleigh on the way home! 😂🥂
Christmas spirit. Small but lovely markets, mulled wine/cider/rum, music and lots of Santas
Enjoyed the great food and drink on offer from beautiful restaurants to street markets
Loving Riga! Beautiful city. 😁

Arrived in Latvia after a little nap on the plane, straight to our Air bnb with a padded cell front door! Dumped our bags and headed out to 1 of the bars on our to do list Cafe Leningrad, great gin and dj. Also hilarious drunk man hitting on a girl at the bar after struggling to order a drink and the falling asleep!
