A cabin in the wood (2) – Latvia

Amazing place

Those who know me or are familiar to this blog know how much I love cabins. I already wrote about them here some time ago. Natasza and I are coming back from a short trip in Latvia. Riga, the main city has a lot to offert in terms of architecture. You can meet art deco buidings next to old traditional wooden houses.

Beeing cabin lovers we decided to visit the Ethnographic Open-Air Museum of Latvia near Riga. Basically it consists of taking a stroll in the woods and beeing amazed by old cabins from different times and different places of Latvia.

It’s not real wilderness, it’s a museum, but I really wanted to share this pictures here since these cabins are totally related to the outdoors. But I stop here my explanations.

It took us about 2 1/2 hours to bike the distance.


Once we got to Köln, we stopped by the Dom.


Then we walked through the crowds down to the Rhein.


After eating a granola bar for our snack, we headed to the train station…
