Travel with family
On the 22nd my family arrived very late in Valmiera. And therefore we decided not to do anything this day but do something the next day. This day we walked around Valmiera to show the highlights in Valmiera that are highlights to me. After lunch in Bastion we went to Sigulda.
In Sigulda we stayed a few days. The first day we went to see the ruins of the old castle. This had a very impressive viewpoint to see the castle of Turaida. The second day we went to Turaida, which is described in my previous visit to Sigulda. The third day they went to Césis, I didn’t join since I got sick. The fourth day they walked around and I stayed inside except for the visit to the bobsleigh track in the evening. At the bobsleigh track you can ride yourself, in a quick way you are down, a lot of fun. On the fifth day we went to the Ligatne Bunker which is a bunker in the cellar of a health/spa centre.
The next day we travelled to Daugavpils with a stop at Gaiziņkalns, which is the highest hill of Latvia, and the basilica of Aglona. The day after arriving in Daugavpils we visited the Rothko museum and the fort where the museum is based. After we travelled to Vilnius, Lithuania.
The day after arriving in Vilnius we went to the city and walked around. After we came back. My family left at 11.30 while I stayed in to watch the fireworks going into the New Year. I still felt sick/tired and therefore decided to stay in. Happy New Year.
The day of the new year we travelled to Riga while making a stop at the hill of crosses, 10 km north of Šiauliai. The hill of crosses is a sacred hill where hundreds of thousands of crosses are placed. These crosses are usually placed by pilgrims before they are going to Aglona.
The next day we spend the day in Riga. Here I showed the main highlights. We had dinner at the specific Latvian diner place.
The day after everyone went home. I went back to Valmiera while my family went back to the Netherlands.
