  2. Thank your for inspiring our wanderlust Elise. We were planning to explore streets of Riga in October, although now we are not sure if it is a good idea. If not, next year we will definitely visit this unique country. We are surprised how affordable your trip was (hope it will be the same next year). Take care, Martina.


    1. Hi Martina,

      Oh I’m so glad you like it. It’s been a crazy year hasn’t it? Such a shame that you couldn’t go, but I hope you manage to in 2021. It’s definitely affordable, which is why I wanted to share this post and encourage people to visit. It’s generally a lot less-touristy than many other European cities, which makes it a really lovely place to explore. Fingers crossed you can visit soon!
