Tallinn Old Town

''No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart.''  /Great Gatsby/

Winter wasn't gonna surrender any time soon as thin layer of snow was still clinging to the icebound ground in most places and temperatures below zero were forecasted overnight. As we made our way trough neighbouring country, landscape of infinite patterns and textures stretched towards distant horizon. Dreary woodlands, filled with silence, were casting long and eerie silhouettes. For a moment I let my eyes rest on tree trunks and their empty branches before sweeping grounds for wildlife.

Wonders of Riga   

''Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn''

Today is my favorite day ever and not only because it's Friday. This morning we woke up to the most joyous news ever, our friend in Australia gave birth to a baby girl and today we are going home to Latvia, and I can't wait to fly again. It's nearly April, yet the Mother Nature can't decide what season should it be as only yesterday snow fell in most parts of Latvia. This time around we are skipping home towns and staying in Riga, where so many 'firsts' are about to unfold.

''Imagination is more important than knowledge.'' /Albert Einstein/

I was wide awake well before alarm had a chance to let me know it's 6am yet the gleaming morning light was already peaking trough one side of the curtains, spreading flickering shadows on the wall. House was soundless, everyone was still asleep and off in the distance, I could hear an airplane rumbling in the sky. My heart was on fire as I focused on today's drive ahead. There is certain magic when it comes to Ireland's West coast, something our little family desired to guzzle after a few month of slow hibernation.

Fuerteventura island

''Edit your life endlessly and ruthlessly. It's your masterpiece after all.''

There's nothing like having your bags packed, boarding passes printed and passports ready for the journey ahead! It makes everything come into perspective and it reminded me of how hungry my inquisitive mind, body and soul was for new encounters. The second largest of Spain’s Canary Islands are impressive and diverse enough to  bless venturous voyageurs with countless enchanting perceptions. Let me shine a light on handful of unreal and energetic places we had a chance to visit while on the road.

Things we miss about Latvia

“‎Though nobody can go back and make a new beginning... anyone can start over and make a new ending.” /Chico Xavier/

Everything was exactly how we left it, yet somehow different. Going to Latvia is always exciting and overwhelming at the same time, what can be better than reconnecting with childhood while demolishing small mountain of freshly baked waffles filled with toffee. Last summer we took Ericeira to mainland Europe and as much as we have adapted to life on the island, beyond the obvious things, such as family and friends, there are lots of things we sometimes long for.

In search of winter sun

''Richness is not how much you have but how little you need''

Out of all the things I love photographing ocean the most. Calm and dreamy in the evening, groaning and gasping trough the storms with whispering waves timelessly crashing against the shore, setting and rising sun disappearing over the horizon, changing seasons, lights and most of all; oceans energy. And that's why I have long yearned to come to Fuerteventura. Imagine an island where empty ribbons of road with long patches of barren landscape on both sides stretches from one white sand beach to another one.

Day trip to Tartu

''Love is not what you say. Love is what you do!'' /John Hagee/

Ground was still moist from last nights downpour and every blade of grass was tilted under hefty blanket of dew. Jet black clouds blocked out the sunbeams but I could feel this was going to be a good day. I was looking forward to this long awaited family rod trip to Estonia but I didn't wanna hurry. Because forests cover over one half of the country I wanted to slowly savor changing landscape and look out for wild animals such as lynxes, wolfs and who knows, maybe even brown bears.
