I’m just about to go out and meet Justin at the station. We’re off to Latvia tomorrow morning, and I’m looking forward to it. I’ve still managed to do no research about the place and so really don’t know any of the basic information about the place or what to expect. I don’t even know how to say the all-important phrases like “hello”, “thank you” or “two beers, please”. Justin has a city guide to Riga though, so that should be something to read on the plane. If we’re allowed such lethal weapons on board these days.
But as if to remind me that this trip was only the replacement for our now postponed journey to the Faroes, this article raises the prospect of an interesting way of getting there next year.
