I have made it up to Riga Latvia and it a great change from Berlin. The city is so much smaller and more laid back.
I am also couchsurfing again so this has been a cheap trip to a new city
Like all the towns in Europe the architecture is great and the city is far more walkable than those in the US.
I have been in the city for a couple of days now and I am sure I will miss it when I head to some other large city in Europe with a faster pace.
At times it feels like my life is going from airport to airport and I am always looking up or down one of these ramps.
