This was my first visit to a Stayokay in Holland. The service was friendly, the place was clean, cheap and accommodating. I would reccommend this to anyone. Plus the fact that they have free wifi and a bar was an awesome bonus. Oh, and bike storage!!

... why she does it, etc. Being a tourist attraction, ***** doesn't sound like the best job there. Shell and I ended up at this pub where we met some Argentinians. They were nice and fun to hang out with. The bar closed and back to the hostel we went. Since Michelle doesn't like beer, she got the non drinking ticket because you could get drinks on board. Well those drinks were a choice between orange juice and ...
... for custom. And yes, I'm afraid the manhole covers too!
All these musings are happening as we find ourselves back on a plane, sadly, after a week of peaceful, pleasant, ground-based travel. On our way to Amsterdam and thence, finally, to Edinburgh.
Thank God we checked the forums last night about Riga airport. It would seem it's famous for the slowness of its queues, having been much less busy than it has recently become with the success of the budget ...
