    What else ...

    Free time can be dedicated for a walk in the forests, reading all books you were willing to read but never had time, reconnecting with nature and finally giving yourself time to think and listen to your inner voice. Should you be willing to visit closest cities Cesis, Sigulda or Riga it can be arranged. It is 20-30 minutes car ride to the closest public transportation.
