WPC – Serenity in Jurmala, Latvia

beach sopot

For me, nothing is more serene than escaping the city and visiting a quiet beach.  While I was in Riga I got tired of wandering around the bustling port and hopped on a train to Jurmala, Latvia, a nearby spa town.  Even though it was the middle of summer the beach was relatively empty and only one or two people were actually venturing into the waters of the Gulf of Riga (on the Baltic Sea).  Dipping my toes in the water and walking past sea birds aplenty was the perfect way to relax and recharge after six weeks of serious European packpacking (of course, visiting the spa didn’t hurt either…)!

    Jurmala is one of my most favorite places on the planet. Every time i visit Riga, i have to stop by Jurmala. It has a really calming effect on me for some reason.
