Pancakes in Riga

I'm happy we found this little gem for lunch during our day in Riga. I could never guess pancakes could be made in so many delicious ways!

On a boat!

And here are some pics from the boat too! (Isn't it the most trashiest thing ever to get merry on these boats..?)

Crayfish party

At Jennie and Tessan's parents house in Upplands Väsby.

A real crayfish party consist of, except crayfish, snaps, singalong and crayfish hats. All were included in this party!

At our country house

Some random pictures from our country house during this summer.

I always bring a ton of stuff there that I'm planning to do because I never have time to do it otherwise. And I'm planning to run every day or work out in some other way like rowing. And sailing with our laser! But always when I arrive it's like all my energy runs out - I hardly even have the energy to go to the mailbox a kilometer away... I think it's because all musts disappear. Anyway - that's why I didn't update the blog ;) 

Maria clayfish party

A real cray fish party but in smaller version -  and with the final in handball on the TV. After dinner we took a walk to Skogskyrkogården that is such a beautiful cemetery.

Riga - part 2

When we arrived to the Old Town of Riga we realized that we were so happy to match our trip with Riga festival! In the Old Town the were a medieval fair and we soon noticed concerts and performances all over town. Wonderful!

Haha today a squirrel peeked into our living room! We can hear them run around on the roof quite often, but not it's not often we see them so close.

Last hours in Riga

Last hours in Riga before taking the boat back. Drinks at Skyline Bar and a walk in Kronvalda Park.

The Riga Central market

Riga - part 1

Me, Cem, Bahadir and Marina took a cruise to Riga, Latvia. I really love the concept of it; you spend two nights on the cruise boat and one day in Riga. Riga is not a very big city so one day was perfect for strolling around and see the main tourist attractions.

We started the trip with a fun night on the boat enjoying each others company. These cruises are famous for a kind of special clientele and this one was not an exceptions (drunk Latvians).

The morning after started with a confused docking in the harbor; "In which direction is the city center??" But by following the stream of people we quickly found our way towards a beautiful city in the late summer warmth.
