The Summer that was
So once again days are getting colder and the sun shyly hides behind enormous grey clouds. Yes Summer is slowly coming to an end here in Latvia.
I literally enjoyed the hot summer days and there was plenty of entertainment. Apparently it was the hottest summer here in long time.
My wife Leila and I finished building our little garden cottage and I enjoyed my birthday there, Ondeya our daughter turned 6 months old in summer and a highlight was her baptism at the Baltic Sea.
Leila's younger brother Dzintars got married to his sweetheart Marjia.
It was such a beautiful day and celebration and we feel honoured to have witnessed these two beautiful souls become one..
I met some creative musicians whom I recorded tracks with.
So yes I can say it was a good summer indeed. I turned 43 this August but I still feel and look like I am in my late 20's. I managed to bring different people from different cultures together for my birthday to have a good time.
Time and moments are fleeting and don't last forever, with each day that goes by I learn to cherish every moment as nothing lasts forever.
But my true sunshine of course is spending time with our daughter Ondeya, who truly enjoys the outdoors just like me. She almost always has a smile on her face and brightens even the darkest of days.
Now its Autumn's turn
There’s no other way to say this - Latvia in autumn is a magnificent place.
Forests become a kaleidoscope of colours - from flaming orange to bright magenta, from warm terra cotta to honey yellow, and a thousand shades in between.
Wonderful autumn colour
Admiring colourful autumn displays is definitely one of the top reasons to visit Latvia in autumn.
Over 50% of Latvia is covered in forests, meaning you won’t have to search hard - even just a quick walk around Riga is enough to transport you straight into an autumn fairytale as you wander around parks and gardens.
The sweltering heat of summer has gone, and the cold winter winds haven’t yet kicked in.
But the Covid19 infections numbers also go up again, so we continue to stay safe and please do so too.
And if you haven't gotten your shot, please do so!!!
