Latvia?! And Monday’s Motivation.

Groeten uit Amsterdam! <– Greetings from Amsterdam!

I’m currently typing away at the Amsterdam airport while waiting for my connecting flight to Riga, Latvia.  In case you’re wondering it’s 3:24 am Boston time or 9:24 am European time so my blog post might not make much sense (nothing new).  Somehow a 14 mile run + 3 glasses of wine still equats to 0 hours of sleep on the overnight flight?  Hmmm so not right.   CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TEACH ME HOW TO SLEEP ON AIRPLANES? :)

Enough rambling,  you guys ready to learn something?  Wanna know where the hell Latvia is located?  It’s conveniently located next to the Baltic Sea and/or to the left of Russia, which is right here:

How cool would it be to see the Baltic Sea on my trip?  Fingers crossed it’s near my hotel.
