Last day of Riga before leaving by ferry

Riga, Latvia

Another early start to the day as it was ‘moving day’ We checked out but then hung around the hostel having brekki, jumping on the net, watching some telly and booking a taxi before heading out for a bit of a last minute look about. We walked the streets we have come to know and took any last minute photos we thought we could use and like. The hostel had booked us a taxi to take us to the port today, assuring us that it would NOT rip us off like the company in Prague. We gingerly took their advice and took the taxi the small way to the ferry terminal and are happy to announce that we were not ripped off!

We have a suit to ourselves upon the MS Romantika, it’s small but has all we need so we’re happy. More than that it’s nice to finally have a room to ourselves where we can relax and leave our stuff about. We watched from the top deck as we pulled away from the dock, watching Riga disappear as we entered the Baltic Ocean. It really is beautiful out here on the water. We spoiled ourselves with a nice dinner where we were able to watch the open water and then, when heading to bed passed a supermarket (yes, a supermarket on the ship) and found a bottle of N.Z Oyster Bay Sav Blanc. Heaven! We brought a bottle and enjoyed this immensely from our cabin as we watched a TV movie. Total relaxation at last!
