I’ve been to Latvia 6 times now since 1993 to visit my lovely relatives, but this was the first time I spent most of the holiday in Riga. I really got to like Riga, needless to say the time passed too quickly and I need to go back again to take more photographs and eat more (saldējums) Latvian ice cream !
Am back in the UK after 10 days in Riga visiting my relatives. For the first few days the temperature was 30 – 34 deg C, a bit warmer than it’s been at home of late ! Was rather surprised and shocked about the UK voting to leave the EU.
The flight is booked to Latvia for June. It will be really good to see my relatives again and wander around Riga and the Latvian countryside. Here are couple of photographs from my first trip to Latvia in June 1993. They were taken on my Olympus OM2n, Zuiko 24mm lens, and Kodak Ektachrome 200 asa.
