So, Why Latvia?
Well, why not Latvia? Warning, I’m about to use a word that is way over-used but here it goes: Latvia is quaint, charming and authentic (the word was quaint by the way). The people and the landscape just felt genuine and homey without being over-touristy, which is always a plus. But specifically, why Latvia? Well Latvia was the first stop on a whirlwind 11 day journey that would take my brother and I to Riga, the countryside of Latvia, Amsterdam and Nigeria to film episodes of our video blog, The Globe on Call. Our time in Latvia was spent examining their was alternative approaches to medicine including a rapid detox center for alcohol and heroin in Riga, a traditional Latvian sauna in the country side and the Pokaini forest, which is said to have healing energy. Oh yeah, I have to mention the two headed dog that we saw, there was that as well. So why Latvia? Why not Latvia?
