Riga, Latvia

In case of any question please contact me here.

In August 2019 I have been to Riga. It was my first visit to the Baltic States and I loved it so much!
The capital of Lativa has an amazing old town with colourful, picturesque and well restored buildings from the 14th century to the Art Noveau and Art Deco buildings of the early 20th century.

Riga is the capital of Latvia and the largest city in the 3 Baltic States. Located close to the Baltic Sea Riga was a member of the Hanseatic League, a confederation of merchant guilds and market towns in North-western and Central Europe in the late Middle Ages.

Although it is high up in the north it was really warm. All over the place there were open air restaurants, cafes, bars with live music, street art and it was such an awesome vibrant and happy atmosphere. At night everything was nicely illuminated.

The island of Ireland is of stunning natural beauty and rich in impressive historical buildings. We started our round trip with a rental car in Dublin, headed north first and and followed then the Wild Atlantic Way. Here are some places we liked the most.

The Wild Atlantic Way leading from Derry to Cork along the West coast of Ireland is the longest signed coastal route in the world. These pics were on the first stage in Northern Ireland. This is Dunluce Castle. We’ve been there in May when the gorse bushes were flowering and enjoyed fantastic weather and views on gorgeous landscapes.

Isn’t that an amazing view? This view to the Atlantic Ocean offers from Mussenden Temple at Downhill Demesne in Northern Ireland. Downhill House was a mansion built in the late 18th century surrounded by a spectacular park.

The Cliffs of Mother are usually pretty crowded. But following the trail to the South -away from the crowded viewpoint at the tourist centre- the Cliffs of Moher offer even more stunning views and lonely places to enjoy.
A path runs close to the edge and places along the way are breathtaking.
