So basically, I had this idea to document a rare phenomenon of when the seashore departs and uncovers an interesting view all around the Latvian seashore. It last happened in 1986. The destination of the trip was the farthest northern point of Kurzeme – Kolka (region of Latvia) where this phenomenon is easiest to see. Kolka is a special place because it’s a meeting point of two seas that never mix – Gulf of Riga and Baltic sea.
Despite having little hope of success, I invited people on Facebook to join me on a trip and in just a few minutes we formed a group of four people – enough to fit in a car. We were ready for the next Instagram trip!
On our way to the Kolka we stopped at a few random places to expand our adventure – sea shores, nature trails and even a local shop to buy some junk food. Our route led mostly near the coast. Check out the map – from Riga to Kolka – the coast was near us almost all the time. Well, not that random after all. I took a lot of pictures and even shot a short video, which is now up on my Youtube channel – video here. The trip went great!

This is actually the place that we visited with the team of the previous Instagram trip. The last destination was at the “Dieniņas” holding. Check out the first “Instagram trip” post.
