Reasons I Keep Coming Back to Norway (And Why Should You Visit)

1. Mountains

I come from a country where the highest hill is 312 m high, so you can understand my fascination with mountains. And Norway is full of them. There are around 600 mountains in Norway.

Malta: hot, bright and unique.

Ok, guys. We (here in Latvia) are on a lock-down because of the Coronavirus starting from the 17th of March. But you know what? All those movies you never had time to watch, and books that keept on piling up just to read them later and all the travels you had no time to plan ahead of time are now casting a shadow on you and whispering in your ear: no more excuses. You have plenty of time now.

Yes, this is a crazy time all over the world, but it does not mean that you will never be able to travel again, does it? So just consider this a time to lay low and explore the world through the magic of the internet. And you might find your dream destination for your next vacation when this is all over.

This evening I just want to share some main things I found the most interesting about Malta.

When our Argentinian friend came to visit us in Latvia for the third time, we knew that it means one thing. A road trip is in order.

When it comes to travel, most people seem to go for the default option of traveling by plane, and whilst this certainly makes sense in a lot of ways and definitely helps you get there a lot faster, it’s also not the only option to get you where you need to go, so if you’ve ever considered the idea of going on a road trip then in this post I am going to share with you some of the reasons why a road trip is a great way to travel – especially for longer distances. Even though Latvia is small, we consider a way from Riga to Liepaja a legit road trip.
