Riga holiday.


Noen bilder fra vår korte ferietur til Riga i Latvia. (Jeg har allerede lagt ut noen bilder på facebook, men her er noen fler).
Det var bare mannen min, jeg og de to yngste ungene. Eldstedatteren har jobb, så hun var hjemme og jobbet og passet katten og hunden.

Just a few photos from our recent short holiday in Riga, Latvia. (I already posted some photos on facebook, but here are some more).
It was just my husband and me with the two youngest children. The oldest daughter has a job, so she was home working and taking care of our cat and dog.




Vi var på sightseeing.

We took in the sights.



Og vandret rundt i flere av Rigas vakre parker.

And we went for walks in some of the beautiful parks of Riga,



Det var velstelt og mengder av blomster.

There were flowers in abundance.



Vi beundret de mange flotte gamle husene og bygningene,

We admired the many beautiful old buildings,



med så mange flotte dekorasjoner og ornamenter.

which had so many nice ornaments and decorations.






Litt shopping ble det også, og vi var bl.a innom denne håndtverksbutikken.
Jeg syntes inngangen til butikken var så fint pyntet, et skikkelig blikkfang :)

While going shopping we stoped by this crafts shop.
I loved how the entrance had been decorated, definately eye catching :)



Vi ruslet langs den rolige elva i parken, og så på fuglene. Det var massevis av ender, duer og småfugl som holdt til der.



We strolled along the quiet river and enjoyed seing all the birds. There were lots of ducks, pigeons and sparrows.


Og vi tok med brød for å mate dem. Fuglene var tillitsfulle, og kom så nært at de spiste ut av hendene våre.



And we brought some bread to feed them. The birds were very trusting, and came so close that they ate from our hands.



Ellers var vi på et digert marked, og jeg handlet masse ullgarn i flere farger.
Et nytt armbånd og øredobber med rav ble det også på meg. Jeg liker så godt rav.

Det var en fin og avslappende ferie vi hadde til Riga :)


We also visited a large market, and I bought quite a lot of wool yarn in a variety of colours.
I also bought an amber bracelet and a pair of amber earrings. I love amber.

We all had a very good time in Riga, and a peaceful break :)

Thanks, Tomoko :) Riga was a beautiful city to visit, and we relaxed and had a good time there. My cat and dog were safe and happy at home with my oldest daughter, all went well with them while we were away.

Takk, Jorunn, og jo det er spennende å oppleve nye steder.
Klem :)
