What do you need to remember traveling with parents?

It’s great if your parents are fit, cheerful and sharing your interests like a go riding on ostriches or go to an immersive staging about coronavirus. But it happens that different generations have different interests.

Therefore, we know what you need to be prepared for if you decide to take mom and dad to the resort.

Insurance for seniors will be more expensive

For elders, as well as for children, the probability of an accident is statistically higher. Hence there is a natural increase in prices.
Thank progress, you can buy insurance online.

The relief matters

Even if your parents for the past 20 years was climbing, make allowances for their age. Try to avoid the stairs. No doubt, that parents are young at heart, but you all travel to chill, not to get tired.

Need to take medicine seriously

If your parent takes life-saving drug on a regular basis you need to follow some rules:
1) Recipes for them should be translated into national language of the country you go
2) Have a separate first-aid kit case for the parent to quickly find the right medicine
3) Take on board required amount of meds for parent needs if the flight will be delayed. And only in original packing!

Take care of comfortable arrival.

A long flight is difficult for the elderly: pressure drops, time zones change, etc. Book a transfer by i’way, then you don’t need to look for a taxi at a reasonable price all over the airport.

Order a transfer to anywhere in the world

You shouldn’t become a nanny

Although the roles change and with age children care about their parents more than vice versa, you need control yourself. Even in caring. Remember how you felt when you were overly patronized! Caring is not tantamount to custody.

... as well as your parents

If you travel with all three generations of your family, don’t “push” offsprings to grandparents. They have the right to relax, just like you.

“Let’s decide in progress” is a bad strategy

If your main goal is sightseeing, settle an issue amicably what places you want to visit together, and where you can take a walk alone. So you can avoid unnecessary resentment.

We also recommend taking a lot of photos: parents will look at them with joy and pride, recalling the time you spent together.

We found the best viewing point for you. The place from where you can see the whole city, part of the bay and the sea. Getting to this viewing platform without a bike or a car will be difficult, so we recommend you rent a vehicle.

Important: don’t forget to stock up on bananas and nuts, near the observation point is a place for feeding monkeys.

Floating Bungalows in Khao Sok National Park

You need to try to make here a bad shot: bamboo thickets, waterfalls, wild animals and a beautiful turquoise lake.

P.S. Better take a raincoat and a large towel with you, cuz the weather can be unpredictable.

“360°” Bar

How to spend a weekend in the capital of Latvia? Looking for interesting places in Riga

More and more tourists fly to Europe with a transfer in Riga. However, don’t try to get to the final destination as soon as possible: if you have a chance, we recommend you take a day or two before starting a long trip.

We’ll tell you how to make days in Riga really memorable.

Day 1.

Check into a hotel and look around in the old town

The old town in Riga it’s a very cozy mix of cobbled streets, hotels, shops, and small toylike cafes. These bright houses will amuse any Instagrammer for at least a couple of hours. Photos can be taken absolutely free.

Buy a Gift for Mom at Dzintars

“Intrigue”, “Secret of the Riga Woman”, “Riga’s lilac” were the salvation of soviet fashionistas, who didn’t always can get french perfumes. It still can be found on Dzintars stores shelves, among other iconic (and new) fragrances.

Price
About 6 euro per bottle

Take a walk in the trendy district and buy souvenirs at the flea market in the quarter Red Barns

Red Barns is a hipster quarter, where you can walk from the center of the old city. You will find here music festivals, parties and night movie screenings under the cold northern stars.

Price
Admission is free and then everything depends on your bargaining ability

Try the local cuisine

After a long walk, you will have a good appetite and you can return to the city for dinner. Riga offers many options here:

Lido

A place where you can eat and not go broke: basically it’s a canteen, which is full of delicious homemade food. They offer traditional Latvian dishes – for example, buberte – a semolina dessert with cranberry sauce, as well you can eat here familiar fried potatoes.

Average check
15 euros for two

Ezītis miglā

The name of the cafe is translated as “Hedgehog in the Fog”. It’s a small cozy bar with an extensive selection of alcohol, a fast-food snack and a bunch of stuff with hedgehogs.

Cocktails – 4-6 euros, a burger – 5-10 euros, a slice of apple pie – 2.50 euros

Rozengrāls

Not just a restaurant, but a real costume show — Rozengrāls is a time-travel restaurant. The building itself has existed since 1293 when it was a wine cellar, and it still has several elements of the interior of that time. All the waiters are dressed in medieval outfits, the dishes are served according to old recipes, and musicians play folk melodies.

Price
Soup 5-7 euros, hot – 10-20 euros, beer – 5 euros

Day 2

Take a bike ride to Jurmala

What to do in Latvia in the summer? If the weather on the second day of your Riga vacation would be clear and warm, we recommend you spend the day in the fresh air. Moreover, for followers of a healthy life eating Riga prepared a surprise — bikeway to Jurmala. It’s a 13 kilometers of very picturesque places: the road, that past the Riga airport (you can make beautiful stories with airplanes), the botanical garden, a pine forest, and the seashore. And at the end of the journey, the prize is a resort Jurmala.

How to get there?
Bike rental points are near St. Peter’s Church in the old town. The bikeway itself begins in the Imanta area, across the river from the old city.

Price

And if you suddenly realized, that you have overestimated yourself and no longer able to ride a bicycle to Riga, you can use our transfer service: just order a transfer from Jurmala to the center of Riga or directly to the airport.
