When I googled Geomatics, Riga Technical University was the first on the list. I had not heard of Latvia before, but I was quite keen to get out of my comfort zone and experience a new country. Now I call Riga home and Riga Technical University has been a great experience. I like the fact that the administration and teachers know who I am and readily help when needed. It's really nice being in a place like Riga. There is a really large tradition of dance and music in Latvia that I have enjoyed thoroughly.
