  • Outside Pavilion Concert It was a good thing we'd had a snack beforehand, because they ran out of food by the time we got into line at supper. All that was really left for the last people in our group to eat Posted by torirobinson in Baltic & Iceland | Jul 9, 2014
  • Morning Free Time Because the breakfast we were being offered wasn't that great, some of us decided to just stay in for the morning and eat a little bit of the stuff we'd gotten the night before at the market. I figured, Posted by torirobinson in Baltic & Iceland | Jul 10, 2014

  • Day 13 n 14 (30 n 31 Jan)I will give it to you up front. Even with all the efforts of an excellent tourism board, Ventspils is struggling to attract international tourism fame.

  • Day 12 (29 Jan)From Riga to Ventspils today. Short trip. Checking back on the Mac; Google maps tells me 187.7Km. Deeper into history. I probably did this road some 100 times in 2000/2001.
