At the early November of 2018, my friend and I decided to go to Amsterdam. Last time I’d been to Amsterdam was about 15 years ago, so I was excited. We went for the canals and… well… brownies, but I can tell you that I most definitely would’ve stayed for the food and the atmosphere.… Continue reading Hey, Amsterdam. You’re lovely!
I have just returned from a week in Croatia and this was such a different trip. It was a work trip, not a week away for myself and I had been interested in this sort of traveling for some time now. Our group consisted of 10 participants and two of us - leaders of the… Continue reading The wild thing
September is my favorite time to travel. There’s an autumn feel in the air. If you travel to Northern countries – it’s a little windy, it’s not too hot and not too crowded anymore. If you travel to South, you get to prolong your summer and again – no crowds. So, you might see why… Continue reading Talk tae me in Scots
Couple of years back, my friend and I decided to go on a long weekend to Oslo. I had never been, she had never been, and the flight from Riga was short. So it seemed like a great idea. It still remains one of my favorite trips to this day... And let me tell you… Continue reading Oslo
I am the lucky one. I don’t have to sit at a desk for 8 hours every day. And, in my opinion, it doesn’t matter if you love your job or hate it (in which case you should quit it), inactivity at workplace is a curse of the 21st century. Not that long ago, people… Continue reading N.E.A.T. and why does it matter?
Last weekend I got together with my family and we had decided that we'll go for a trip. Just for couple of days, so we didn't have to go far and spend too much money. So we decided that in a long weekend (Friday - Sunday) we could go for 2 places - Kuldīga (Latvia)… Continue reading Close travels
Day 10 Basically this day didn't count... We had to get the car back to Green Motion car rental by noon, since our flight was super early in the morning, we decided to get the car to Cinisi and then just stay there. And that's basically what we did. Walked around Cinisi, headed to our… Continue reading La Bella Sicilia X
Day 9 On this morning, I woke up sad. Because I knew it's our last full day in Castellamare, before we start heading back home. But it didn't last too long, since I knew we're about to go on a long hike in Lo Zingaro Nature Reserve. You have to pay 5 EUR to enter. You… Continue reading La Bella Sicilia IX
DAY 8 This was it... We couldn't decide on anywhere else where to go. So we headed for beach. Well, beaches. Multiple. We started with a beach near Tyrrhenian Beach Village. That was a sandy beach, no rocks in the water, so a good place if you want to swim. But it didn't seem quite what… Continue reading La Bella Sicilia VIII
Why was Castellamare del Golfo the best choice for exploring Western Sicily? Because every destination we chose - it was an hour drive or less. So convenient! Besides - it was just 40 minutes to Palermo airport as well. DAY 7 The previous evening we were discussing possible places to go to on our 7th… Continue reading La Bella Sicilia VII
