Imagine a scenario in which you have to survive without your smartphone for a month. Would people naturally turn to a book in such a case? Well, let’s be honest, most of us wouldn’t. Books are good, no doubt about it, but allow yourself to dwell on that thought.Continue reading “Disconnected: The smartphone detox”

InstaTrip Pt.5 – Industrial heritage
This trip was more challenging than others because of the locations the organizers chose for us. How we handled the challenge, take a look at the pictures below.
I hosted a hiking event
I have joined many hiking groups before, but this was my first time hosting one.
It all started with an innocent Instagram story post where I invited people to join me on a hiking adventure. It took me by a surprise how many people applied.
Improving endangered lichen habitat
Another project on an Estonian island? Sign me up!
The Rumpo peninsula is the habitat of unique and rare lichen communities and the only habitat of the curled snow lichen (Flavocetraria cucullata) in Estonia.
InstaTrip Pt.4 – Kurzeme 2
The InstaTrip Pt. 4, which is the one the article is going to be about, was organised by the Latvian travel agency again (meaning – the first one, to which I went and covered in my blog, was also organised by them).

InstaTrip Pt. 3 – Daugava region
Another Instagram trip? Yes, that’s right. It took me much longer than it should have. This time it will be just a little recap and summary because the trip took place around 2 months ago. Call me lazy but I’m back to talk about stuff that happened and will happen anytime soon. I’m excited to bring you my adventures and photos.
First time kayaking
Hiking in Brasla nature trail? – check!
Kayaking the Brasla river? – check!
Hiking alongside the Brasla river
Had an awesome time with yet another hiking group!
Beautiful river, cliffs and nomadic vibes.
Around 18km in total.
Hiking alongside the Amata river
The Amata river is considered to be the fastest flowing and the wildest river for boating in Latvia. It’s not recommended for amateurs to boat there with no professional in charge. So, every adrenaline seeker and adventurer who reads this article, keep that in mind when visiting Latvia! But this time the article won’t be about boating but instead about hiking along the Amata river. Slippery trail, challenging but nevertheless – awesome!
Had a really great time with these awesome folks!

The legend of Sushi
You might wonder why I would like to share this kind of story with you, right? Actually, the answer is quite simple – sushi is my passion. How it came in my life and how it turned out to be so important to me, is worth a blog post.
Trust me, it’s worth a read! (or just see all the pictures)
P.S. A great way to kick off the first post in 2017!
