Bus ride to Riga

A travel blog entry by teamwaldron


... up a couple of steps. There's no doors inside this place only curtains between each area.

In the main sleeping area the mattress is on the floor

Still despite it being basic, it's clean and our host is a nice person and the wifi works, and that's what matters.

After unpacking we head off to the Old City and a bit of a look around.

It's a Saturday and it seems the whole city is having some sort of festival, well at least in the streets ...

The Road to Riga

... While the storm was beating the shore, we were inside beating each other with bushes of freshly collected leaves and flowers. Laying on a bed of ferns each of us got a treatment to drive out our sweat and evil thoughts - indeed at the end of the session we were completely relaxed and fully concentrated on the nice food that was prepared for us.
