Ryanair had just started flying to Riga. I'd never been to the Baltic so I head north for a few days, for a slice of real winter weather.
I got to Riga late at night, and after I'd found a place to stay I headed out to explore. The city centre is ringed by parkland, and it was quiet and thickly covered with snow. Although the temperature was about -10°C it didn't feel too cold.
