Me, myself & I go way back, more than 30 years back already (and that’s all I’m gonna say about my years on this planet). I have originated from a small country in Europe called Latvia (if you don’t know where it is, Google it), and it is the place I always come back to. I have also lived in UK and Germany, and most of the time I feel like a citizen of Europe (but there are those times when I’m very much Latvian…). I was lucky to find my passion early enough and it’s all things urban. I’ve been so crazed up about it that I joined the ranks of young researchers just to be able to work on something I’m really interested in. And I have never regretted it… even when doing a PhD seemed like the stupidest thing on Earth!
I love travelling and discovering new places (preferably cities), I enjoy reading books and watching good movies (preferably European), I am fascinated by music and live performances (especially if you throw in a good drummer), and I occassionally challenge myself in the kitchen with some cake adventures. I have no way of predicting which of these topics are going to end up in this blog, but it is quite possible that all of them. I hope you enjoy reading it because I sure do enjoy writing it!
