Latvian minute


I am on a short trip to ST. Pete's to accompany my husband on programming conference. Actually he is working and I am walking around the places, go on a guided tour and generally enjoy myself. And yes I envy myself too.
As I always do when I am away today I am sharing with my travel experience the post about my past vacation. It was a glorious trip to Riga, Latvia where I ran my first half marathon this year. I loved the gold label race and the whole city as well. I could feel the love people feel towards it. And I loved Riga. But it was not only Riga for me. We took a day to experience a near by touristic place. It is an old and well known hiking location with beautiful river, forests and 3 castles. A pure gem people enjoy vacationing ever since XIX century. Last May we joined the glorious company of tourists in Sigulda and Turaida,



 


 My outfit was all touristy and cozy so pardon my way too regular outfit, not really worthy a mention.
But the Livonia order castle as well as Turaida castle/manor totally is. There are also beautiful sculptures in park (collection gifted), forest, a canopy road and caves. 

























Enjoy the rest of the week!
 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  4. So cool you ran a marathon in Riga. It's great you were able to feel how much people love it. I have never ran a marathon so I don't know what it is like. Latvia is a beautiful country and I would love to visit it some day. Fingers crossed I'll get the chance. I see that you have not only enjoyed Riga but other touristy areas in vicinity. That's awesome! Your outfits are always cute. You look lovely.

Deodorant Battle

It's not that I don't have a new travel post really but I want to mix thing up a little and add beauty post. Yes I will never be a beauty blogger but I do enjoy some beauty stuff and I love posting about it on my social media. Why not do it here from time to time. My blog - my rules. So here I am posting about deodorants. It was curious for me as I was send two options of the same line: spray and roll. Which one is better? I tested!

Spray dries faster and the scent is slightly less which I love. However I am never sure if I covered everything and also still not sure if spray is such a good option ecologywise.
Roll is can take more! I mean it, I ran almost 15 km with it and my armpits were actually the only dry spots I had (oops! disgusting, I know).

Each is awesome stain wise, even my black yoga pants went through bakasana which is always an issue with products. Generally I did like both products. Will probably stick to roll though, I mostly need deodorant for sports and it makes…

Joy of Music and Clothes

I went on a date yesterday. And listened to the music. Philharmonic is our favorite and I believe we haven't visited since before the pandemic happen, it was around February when we last visited, we missed the love sounds so music so much. We had to take all the precautions and there were way less people then usual (only half of the seats were possible and some areas were locked off completely) but it is the new normal and I am all for it. Bonus points for us meeting next to the concert hall so it felt like a date of not married/living together couple. We normally go on a date from home and are together the whole time. And the date was followed by a sweet cake and tea which make the night perrfect. I missed such days so much!



I was gifted with this top by Dear-Lover and I really like it. But if you are to order it consider going size down. Mine was too roomy. I will be wearing it home for relaxed look and for workouts (it is from sport material so it's great for it) but despit…

Zaraysk 2020

August gave so much energy and so many emotions over traveling. Close and far, to new places and not. Last week we have been to Zaraysk, a small town with big story some 150 km from Moscow (still same region though, Russia is big). We have been there last year but we loved it there so much we wanted to come back. And we had o chance to skip it as we are doing Running Series this year and want to run in each possible start this year. We registered on each successfully so all we need now is to actually complete the run.
Zaraysk was first mentioned in 1146 so it's technically older than Moscow. Originally it was a bordertown. Compact but effective fortress (or Kremlin in old-fashioned Russian way)  was built to protect the Ryazan Duchy and later on Great Moscow Duchy from the Tatars. Well this particular Tatar girl thinks she could call this trip a tie or one more win for Zaraysk. Kremlin looks very lively there and my favorite spot, the 1916  water tower gives great view. Bonus poin…
