Take note – story published 2 years and 7 months ago

Another weekend has arrived with tough restrictions still in place. The weather appears rather gloomy, so it might be tempting to stay indoors. Here are some ideas, outdoors and indoors, to spend your lockdown weekend responsibly.

Lockdown adventure

The Latvijas ekspedīcija (Expedition of Latvia) local tourism organization is offering 'lockdown adventure' routes with tasks until November 15. You can choose a route in the center of Rīga, the old town, or a cinema-related route through the center, Old town and the 'quiet center' (around Miera Street). You will be able to choose a starting point and time yourself, and the organizers will provide tasks at that time. It is recommended to have someone who speaks Latvian on your team, as the game is in Latvian.
