Jānis, Jānis! Wherefore art thou Jānis?

Today I did something that Mammy O’Grady would definitely not approve of. (Among other things) I joined a Latvian dating website. And no, before you jump on the mammy bandwagon, I haven’t completely lost my mind. You see, I’ve come … Continue reading

Jelgava – home of the Jānis

I fear I may have been overworking a little lately. This week, I fell asleep while writing up some invoices. I fell asleep on the bus and nearly missed my stop. I couldn’t understand why my boot didn’t fit anymore … Continue reading

Search me…

Last weekend, this blog (about a country most people have never heard of) reached 50,000 views. I promised myself that when this happened, I would dedicate a post to the WWIA who helped me get to this point. Yes, it’s … Continue reading

An O’Goddess in the kitchen

The Latvian men in my life see me as many different things – unintentionally hilarious Irish person, friend, drinking buddy, teacher, last-minute proofreader, shoulder to cry on when their mad Latvian girlfriend does something mad, Plan B girlfriend… However, the one … Continue reading

Squashed

As a result of my last two posts, I’ve been getting these sorts of messages from my friends: “Mother of god, what have you started on your blog? You’ll need bodyguards soon – although none of the men will protect … Continue reading

I fell for a Latvian

As my last post about Latvian men provoked a rather heated response, I thought I’d stir the pot a little more and write a sister poem about Latvian women. (Sometimes, I just don’t know when to quit…) Disclaimer: This poem is … Continue reading

I’m married to a Latvian

That got your attention, right? Of course I’m not really married to a Latvian but I get an awful lot of search terms on my blog about ‘Latvian men’, and more specifically ‘naked Latvian men’, so I thought I’d write … Continue reading

A Blouting in Riga

Oh Jānis, my Jānis!

Digging Kuldīga (part two)

Finally, it was time to visit Ventas Rumba (Kuldīga Waterfall) and Vecais Tilts (Old Bridge), which if I’m honest, I’d been putting off a little for fear of being disappointed. At a tinchy 2 -3 metres high, it’s not going … Continue reading
