I am a girl who loves mountains, changing seasons, running, true backpacking, strong coffee, and knitting with high quality yarn.
When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.
The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

Riga, Latvia, brings smiles to all
The Old city of Riga – the beauty of Latvia.
Alex in Latvia has awakened to life.
and had a first date
They went tube-sliding in a park.
Bonding with Dad – don’t they look like brothers?
Meeting cousins for the first time – and they adored Alex!
Grandpa (my dad) came from Moscow – his now-oldest grandson is his hope.
Everybody had a plan for entertainment of Oleg and Alex, showing not only city and parks, but love and family ties.
Oleg’s uncle Yura and his grandson Yura showing their passion – planes. Little Yura is a Junior champion in Latvia for flying those planes, while Uncle is a President of Charter Airline in Latvia (did I mention my Dad served 40 years in air force? It runs in family).
Watching those planes, from generation to generation.
Women cook traditional shashliki (shish kebab) …
…and serve table
while men spend time in banya (Russian sauna)
Nobody wanted it to end.
