Sandy Sarnies

A picnic on the beach, some extra seasoning for the cucumber slices and a seaweed tossing competition afterwards.

Riding on the Beach

Yes it was possible! No it’s not a photshop job! The sand was so compressed even with all our luggage we could still ride without beaching!


Without snow – the reindeers or huskies just pull their brother along on our waterproof bags. Mama has since had to do a few repairs on their trousers from the reins pulling on them but the waterproof bags survived their ordeal well!

Folk Dancers

Here we are in Riga watching these Latvians do a jig or two – Moses got the hang of it, Caspar stood and absorbed it all and Turis and Herbie just enjoyed swinging and jumping up and down and spinning around and around on our arms. Later on in the same park we ended up being interviewed for Japanese TV about Latvian culture!

So why Riga?  – We only managed to get transit visas for Russia so decided to fly to Riga/Latvia and will cycle through Baltics to Poland.


Trying to make taking photos in Red or Beautiful Square (Krasnaya means either in Russian) more fun as the boys have topped out on sight-seeing for today.
