3 for 6 Euro. Delicious. Fresh. Lovely setting but always crowded. Wait in line. Eat.

This ethnic style bag take you from city shopping to beachside fun this summer. Packed with memories of happy times and a scary walk with about ten sunscreen tubes between bomb control gates at an Egyptian airport, discovering the forbidden tresure after passing a few and could not empty it in any trash can in front of all the saftey guards!

… The most beautiful little art objects for those on a budget to remember a sunny walk on Strandvägen, Stockholm’s most expensive adress for hotels and private residences.

Riga, Latvia

More than ten years has gone by since I visited Riga, the art noveau capital of Baltic Latvia. Now we have booked a trip there next weekend. I feel excited. I don’t now what my boyfriend feel.
At first the plan was to go to Berlin, at least my plan was. His plan was a trip to Moscow. But as time passed by without any attempt of booking the choices narrowed.
We travel a lot so we tend to be on a budget most of the time when it comes to shopping holiday destinations and this time the holiday is only one week away. Today we sat down looking at potential flights. We ended up buying a cruise ticket (!), boarding on a thursday afternoon, spending the evening and night on one of Tallinks ships to Riga. We fly back on sunday. Yes, we cheat to get it cheap 🙂
I think this is a brilliant idea. We have one cosy (or party) night on the boat. Chilling. Shopping. Maybe even dancing or at least see a tacky show I hope. Have a sleep in and than go straight to the hotel to check in and go to the pool.

We have booked two night at the Radisson Blu Daugava Hotel (24 Kugu Street, Riga) with views over river Daugava and the old town, Unesco world heritage-listed. This hotel is a middle class hotel with great breakfast, according to ratings from 200 guest (4,1/5). We pay 1435 SEK (about 160 Euro) à room for two nights, about half price according to hotels.com.
Last time I was in Riga I travelled with friends from my university in Tartu, Estonia. We went on a two day trip to Riga to watch the national team in Latvia playing against Sweden. To my american friend Evan’s suprice 90 minutes went by without any goals. He had never seen soccer before live and “fotball” for him was made of goal. I sang for Sweden, sitting about two (!) meters from the field. He painted Latvias flag on his cheaks and cheered for them. Today he and his wife lives in Latvia and his consul Evan K McCarthy at the US embassy.
