Visit Riga on a budget
Traveling overseas and not knowing what food, hotels or activities may cost can make it a little difficult to budget how much money you’ll need. This was certainly the case when I decided to visit Riga, the capital of Latvia. I had heard from multiple sources that the daily cost of living in Riga is generally higher compared to other cities in Eastern Europe. This can of course make is harder to estimate your budget for a trip.
Food is a great way to tell
I often find supermarkets a great way to figure out how expensive I might find a European city and use the prices to compare to my own country. For this reason I urge you to come along as I take you through a Riga supermarket shop and show you what things cost abroad.
