These are just a few pictures of my time in Latvia so far. The weekend was lovely and sunny so it was jam packed with castle hopping, heading to the Beach at Jurmala, going to a birthday party at the Embassy, eating yummy sushi and watching Snow White and the Huntsman which was really good. There is an Opera Festival on at the moment in Riga and every night there is a different Opera. Tonight we're off to the Opera to see the Barber of Seville which I am super excited about!!

Hope you all have a lovely evening!!

Hello from Riga!

Hi! Sorry for not having posted in so, so long.....I've been going through a bit of a hard time recently and there hasn't been anything really interesting or exciting to blog about sadly, but I'm back now!

I'm having a bit of a girly break at the moment as I've come to Riga in Latvia to visit my lovely, lovely best friend. It's really lovely to see her and just hang out. Have learnt that Riga is a bit of a spa city, there are so, so many spas in which to treat yourself to a relaxing treatment and it's so much cheaper than in London so I think I will definitely pamper myself during my stay. A bit surprisingly, there are some really good sushi places in Riga, so I have been eating a lot of sushi and have possibly become addicted!!!

I've had quite a chilled out time exploring the city so far. There are lots of beautiful parks to wander through and I've been exploring the food and flower markets and the old town. Tonight we're off to see Snow White and the Huntsman which I'm really looking forward to.
