Not really up for anything substantial to eat, I opted for a plate of beetroot soup at a local pub/restaurant, where we sat for a while and watched some football. My stomach wasn't feeling to great after lunch but a little ice cream helped sooth the uneasiness. As usual, we left the gift shopping until the very last minute and so spent some of the afternoon clearing up this chore.
After some more wandering we remember one last thing that we had to do before we left Riga, and that was to partake of some Black Balsam.
Soon after it was time to collect our bags and head to the airport, sad to leave the Balkans and return to Scotland. I think we might have needed a further week holiday to recover! So we had cleared up a little unfinished business in terms of getting through all of Europe, with a week being ample time to get around Riga and Tallinn. We would have probably thrown Lithuania into the mix if we had an extra 2 or 3 days. So, all in all, Riga and Tallinn is more than recommended.
