Although I was only in Latvia for a few days,
I was able to squeeze in plenty of amazing experiences.
Logistically speaking, it's really easy to get around.
City center is a quick 15 minute drive from the airport.
We opted to stay at the Radisson Blu Ridzene Hotel in Riga,
and honestly, it was perfect for our needs.
Walking distance to all the major attractions,
this five star hotel is not only affordable (by american standards), but also comfortable,
and as a bonus, it offers a delectable breakfast buffet.
After checking out Riga's city center on the first day,
we decided to head out of town.
Located 25 kilometers west of Riga,
this seaside town is a popular getaway for most locals.
We wandered the beaches and checked out the romantic Art Nouveau architecture before heading back for dinner.
Speaking of dinner... every meal we had in Latvia was SO good!
From pickled herring, to lamb shanks to suckling pork knuckles,
every dish left us stuffed yet drooling for more.
In fact I'm drooling just thinking about it now.
