About Me


Enjoy every moment of life and discover the world and people around us


I have always been fascinated by getting to know people from other cultures. Previously I traveled only for business trips. Some years ago I discovered how great is to travel just for fun and vacation, and see new people and new places! As well, I like to host visitors, arrange things and organise events, e.g. make guests feel good in my country.


I believe things happening to us each moment are the best possible, we just have to see it. Unfortunately, we often realize it only afterwards. Try to stay positive and enjoy every moment. A small drop of water contains the whole universe as also the human soul. Love changes everything... And good humour always helps:)


Traveling and moving always!!! Fond of any seasonal sports - country/downhill skiing, ice/roller skating, bicycling, walking, swimming, badminton, dancing and reading. I am singing in a choir for many years. And I love so much alternative traveling and discovering world by reading books in English, Latvia, Russian - whatever works for the moment:) In 2013 surprisingly managed 20 books...

Seeing every spring the life coming out from ice and cold, amazing.. Growing something in the garden... Hearing birds singing in the countryside in the middle of summer...
