Do you remember the last travel photo challenge where if nominated you had to post one photo from your travels for ten days? I very much enjoyed it and was delighted to find a new challenge and surprise nomination from my fellow travel blogger Christie who runs 1000 PLACES AND MEMORIES.

Thanks so much for choosing me as a candidate for the new Weekly Photo Challenge, Christie.

If you participate in this photo challenge, this is what you need to do:

  • All you need to do is post one of your favourite photos each week for the month of August, but don’t worry if you go into September
  • The photo can be from any time and anywhere, so start sifting through your travel albums
  • Post the photo without any explanation and you can even ask your readers to guess where it was taken for a little guessing fun
  • Nominate someone each Sunday.

For this challenge, last week I nominated Rebecca from the fabulous travel blog Rebecca Goes Rendezvous, but this week, I am gonna follow Allans lead from Picture This and won’t nominate anyone particular. Either way,  any of my followers who would like to participate for this challenge. – you can post wherever you wish although please link to me, so I know you accepted the #photochallenge. If you are not interested, then that is also cool.

So, can you guess where the photo was taken?

    1. Thank you, Allan. Yes, it is Riga, and you would have a great time exploring it. Riga is so stunning and has so much to offer the seeker of urban beauty. The old town, which is registered on the UNESCO World Heritage list, has all the winding streets and cobblestones that you could possibly want. πŸ™‚ Aiva


  1. Even if I’m rarely able to guess the locations, I like those challenges. This here reminds me of a favourite of mine, the “Tuesday Teaser” on the “Two Spoiled Cats” blog, e.g. here: https://wp.me/p4uPk8-1wI
    Btw, I have no clue where your photo was taken. πŸ˜‰


    1. Thank you kindly πŸ™‚ Whether you like fascinating architecture (Hanseatic, traditional wooden houses, classical, Art Deco), culture (opera, theatre, museums of every type) or just hanging in out any of the innumerable cool cafes, Riga is welcoming and accessible. Wishing you a lovely day πŸ™‚ Aiva xx

  2. Thanks again for the shout-out, Aiva! I admit, I’m a terrible guesser, and it’s a shame that I couldn’t guess that this was Riga from the photo, despite visiting there two years ago. Such a lovely place!

    1. Hi, Rebecca. I am a terrible guesser, too! And look at me catching up with the comments ten days later, it’s been quite hectic with school runs and full-time jobs! I am glad to hear you had a chance to visit Riga, not many people know where it is! πŸ™‚ Aiva xx

    1. Thank you kindly. Riga Old Town is beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Especially at Christmas time with the enormous tree, the Christmas lights and the markets. It is a fairly-tale place, highly recommended for a good walk.
