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.

CJF, spring 2020

Everybody loves kids fashion and kids fashion shows because it is so adorable. especially when the kids are tiny professionals with no issues at all (I have seen my share of frozen terrified kids on a catwalk and even couple of tears). When you go to see CJF (Child and Junior Fashion exhibition in Moscow) you can be sure it'll be just as it is with adults only with tiny humans. I definitely have a soft spot for this and I do enjoy watching it even if the majority of the show is about school uniform as below. I hope you will enjoy looking through the adorable kid fashion as much as I did below.
RU: Все любят детей и показы детской моды, ведь дети такие очаровательные. Особенно это верно, когда дети-модели  настоящие маленькие профессионалы, которые работают чётко, без проблем (а уж поверьте мне, я видела не мало застывающих, испуганных деток на подиуме, и даже несколько горьких слёз). Когда вы отпраляетесь на CJF (Child and Junior Fashion выставку в Москве), вы можете быть уверен…

Fallow Deer

Yesterday Russia celebrated International Women's Day. I take it as a day when we remember why we need to fight to equal rights but a lot of people here celebrate it as day to remind girls to be pretty and inspire men. I don't really want to discuss it and get sad. Also a lot of people (me included) take it as a day to spread love to your female relatives. I went to see my grandmother. I love her so much! My fantastic mother was there with us as well. Our favorite men: my husband, my father and grandfather (I love his mustache so much!) - came as well. But as regular family time is boring, something new and exciting isn't. Not long before we found out about Fallow Deer shelter not far from my grandparent's place. We decided to add it to our tour. And here we were! The place is awesome. I am crazy about the idea of putting people in improvised cage while actual animals run free. How do we get to see them? There is spot where they eat next to the 'visitor cage'.…

Ryazan getaway

I don't normally do that but.. last week I've been on a weekend getaway with my friends. We didn't have much time and finances so we picked something nearby. We took train to Ryazan and had a total blast. It is an old city. once very major and a capital of Ryazan duchy during the feudal times. It once was a border town during the Genghis Khan Mongol raids. Its history dates back to 1095 so there is a lot to learn. Now it's in top 20 biggest Russian cities and has a lot to offer to tourist. From historic Kremlin and Churches to ruined USSR heritage and modern funny statues on famous saying ('Even mushrooms have eyes in Ryazan' which goes back to borderline days) and soviet movies. It was a little vacation filled with so much joy I couldn't help but share with you. It was a tiny bit cold there but it was so worth it! I can't help and want to show you the trip.








And the sights:
