I must admit that Latvia was never on my must-see travel list but after visiting recently to attend my best friend’s wedding I soon realised that it should have been. From the gorgeously quaint old town and the beautiful people to the lush green countryside and distilled vodka Latvia really blew my expectations and I cannot wait to go back. Cosmopolitan city, historical town, pristine beach, snow-capped mountain, untouched forest ... whatever you are into Latvia has it. First things first, 'where the hell is Latvia' I hear you say. Well, it is part of the Baltic states of northern Europe, next to Russia and sandwiched between Estonia and Lithuania.
