It’s unbelievable.

It’s the end of September, but it feels okay in shorts and t-shirt. What?

I have experienced a lot of much colder summer days than what we have at the moment in Latvia. Take this summer for example, there were days a month ago, when I was wearing a winter hat when cycling. But now, the sun is shining, it’s very warm, just like most of the last week, and I just want to finish this article and go out for a ride or walk.

Just like we did 4 out of 7 days last week. Spending most of the day outdoors.

New Posts About Cycling in Riga (not only)

I have published 11 new articles this week.

Some are about the things we did and the places we visited last week, like the day trip from Riga to Cesis, cycling from Riga to Ogre and Ogre Blue Hills Nature park, others – about places we have visited earlier.

We went to Voleri neighborhood almost a month ago.

But looking at the photos it seems like it was the end of September then, not now. Crazy. And awesome.

On Wednesday we did a half day cycling trip from Riga to Ogre, and back. There we visited the Ogre Blue Hills Nature Park.

We went plane spotting, mushroom hunting, went to a new part of the city and visited Cena bog. In a single day. It was Friday.

Then there was the day trip to Cesis, where we checked out the beautiful Erglu Cliffs and Raiskums lake. We were tired already, but it was such a beautiful day.

And we did some chilling on Sunday. Reading books mostly.

Here are some of the photos from the last week:
