I’m officially onto the last leg of my trip.
After a short stop in Sweden and an overnight cruise, I arrived, exhausted, but excited, in Riga, Latvia.
One good nights sleep later, I was off exploring the city with my family, on my way to a bakery where I was planning to pick up breakfast.
Maize (meaning bread in Latvian), was the name.
Entering the store, I was met by the wonderful smell of baking bread and the sight of many delicious pastries.
All of us together bought two small apple pies (they were actually more like apple tarts), one rhubarb crumble bar, a roll, and a couple drinks.

All the baked goods from the bakery were delicious. The pie had a flaky crust and a somewhat jelly-like filling with just the right amount of sweetness, the crumble was gooey and bursting with flavor, and the roll, well it was just plain good.

Soon, only crumbs remained on the plates and cups were empty.
We then headed off again, to wander the streets and stop at one of the many local markets than can be found in Riga.
Oh, how I love exploring new places.
