Here is another long day of traveling around Latvia. 13 hours on the road! But so worth it. That day we visited two castles: Birini Palace and Cesis Castle. Both places are gorgeous and surrounded by stunning nature. My man was especially pleased with Cesis Castle. With all his love of everything old and destroyed, he was having the best time holding an old candle lamp while exploring the corners of old castle ruins.
Riga changes. And although it's a little bit painful to see all the changes, I think this city changes for the best. Lots of restoration of old buildings, new restaurants opened, interesting shops with local goodies and clothing. And even though the city more and more goes away from me, I love it. I love it even more than ever. And I will accept the changes and I will enjoy anew Riga each time I visit. I will let Riga to keep surprising me because, believe me, Riga knows how to surprise anyone.
