Latvia – Country #40!

Last weekend, I traveled to Riga, Latvia for a conference. Of course, I was happy to reunite with many friends who were also in attendance and meet new people, but I was also a bit ecstatic to visit my 40th country.

It was cold (-15 C or 5 F) and for most of the time, I was comfortably indoors for meetings (ok and I found an indoor gym, there was no way I was going to brave running in that weather). When I did go out, it was usually late in the evening and not an ideal time to see the sights.

The best moments can’t really be shared on this blog, so instead I simply give you a few pictures of the snowy and cold city of Riga:

Some friends and I had a great evening here one night. A fun place to dine if you find yourself in Riga!

We lasted only a few minutes in this park as we were so cold, but it was beautiful!

  1. Riga really is a beautiful city. Sad that you didn’t get to see more of Latvia. We visited Riga last year and took a day trip to Sigulda, another really beautiful place 🙂

  2. Two weeks until we are in Riga, nice tip about the day trip too!
