Picture pirouette: Latvian port has pretty and not-so-pretty spots

It's not always the beautiful sights that catch my eye when I'm travelling. Sometimes it's beautiful words in ugly places. This ship was docked in the harbour at Ventspils, a key Latvian port. "Pretty Flourish"? I don't think so.

You'll probably be glad to hear that the rest of Ventspils was a lot prettier than this ship. It's the place I met two smiling gentlemen and got to sleep in a room overlooking the main town square, all of which helped list Latvia amongst my favourite destinations.

  1. Love the contrast between the name and the rusy, run-down ship. :)
