Throw Back Thursday – Travel to Latvia - Erasmus + / Youth in Action



As a part of my job as a managing director of a volunteer center I’m sometimes able to travel on training courses.  In the winter of 2013 I hade the opportunity to go to Latvia through the EU program Youth in Action, witch has now become a part of the Erasmus + program. It was a super informative program that helped me immensely in preparing me in the transition to the new program. A little short note about what Erasmus + / Youth in action is. It’s a EU program that gives youth ranging from 18 to 30 the opportunity to learn and develop skills in a informal setting. Most of the time it’s done in collaboration with NGOs. So if you would like to know about Erasmus + check it out it’s an amazing program. If you live in a country that borders to a EU country you may also be able to partake.

Her is the link to the website for more information: http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/index_en.htm


So here are some pictures from the trip, hope that you’ll enjoy.
The earliest train going from Skien to the Oslo airport was
like 4:15 or something in the morning. It was brutal getting up that early.
Luckily the train goes straight to the airport and I didn't have to change trains.
It takes about 3 1/2 hours by train. 

Finally, arrived at Oslo airport. 

Looking for my flight. 

Flying on the cheap wit norwegian airlines. 

View from the bus from Riga airport in to the centre of Riga City. 

Trying to find my connecting train to the location of the training site.
People in Riga seamed to be shy and not so happy about
answering questions in English. So finding the right train was some what of a conundrum.
So I was either on a train to Moscow or on the right one. 

My super nice and quiet hotel room.
Unfortunately the thick walls made the internet was super slow.

We don't have a bathtub at home so I was so exited see one in my room.
Well, the schedule  was so hectic that I didn't get the time to use it.

Alcohol free welcome cocktails.

DIY name tags.
