About the Travel Blog
We're on a budget ... sometimes. We stay in fancy hotels ... sometimes. We're not so wealthy that we can live the life of the "rich and famous" (although we did once share a restaurant dining room with Robin Leach!), but if we're careful about how we spend our money, we can have some pretty amazing experiences. Even better, we're fortunate enough to be able to take our virtual businesses with us, so we earn while we learn!
This blog will provide you with itineraries, travel guides and tips -- and we hope to see you on the road!
What is more fun than a kid in a chocolate factory? Well, maybe a kid in a chocolate museum!
The manufacturing and sales of chocolate became of the the leading industries in Riga in the early 1900s. It was so successful, that even when the USSR occupied Latvia, they took over and ran the chocolate factories (combined from 3 different companies into one). After Latvia became independent in 1991, Laima remained and today is own by a Norwegian corporation.
