Sunny! By the central station
Didn't have the best start to this day actually.. It had been snowing heavily in Trondheim the past 48 hours and it had startet to rain.. I had to walk to the airport express bus, and as you can imagine, by the time i got there i was soaking wet!! except from that, the travel went smoothly and we arrived in Riga as scheduled :) When we arrived at Riga airport we were picked up by a bus taking us to our hostel, which was called Hostel Profitcamp (HAHAHA)! But it was an ok place, right in the middle of the old city. Outside our hostel was a nightclub called "Madmoiselle", but at the hostel they strongly underlined the fact that the nightclub and teh hostel had NOTHING in common, hahaha.
We were a group of 30 and were placed in three rooms of 10.

I stayed in a room with 2 other girls and 7 dudes, so we all got to know each other pretty well during those days!

The rest of the afternoon included eating and some mini sightseeing before we hit the supermarket to get some beverages! Before we went out clubbing on our first day, we had reservations on a well known medieaval restaurant called "Rosenkranz". It was really authentic and they didn't even have electricity! And neither were we servd potatoes, because that didn't come to Europe until after the time they had based their restaurant on. It was an ok place, but a bit too special for me. I liked the entertainment and the candlelight-mood though!

After the restaurant we went back to the hostel to get some more drinks before we hit the popular club "Skyling Bar". Skyline is the most exclusive bare in Riga, located on the 26th floor of "Hotel Reval". It was a really nice place with a fantastic view and a really awesome mojito!
We tayed there for most of the night before we went back to the area around our hostel and found a bar where we sat until it was time to go home and sleep after a loooong long day :)
