We are travel addicts – traveling is like breathing to us, though the farther we travel the closer we feel to our home, Lithuania. Now we are more than excited to show you around, the way we would like our homeland to be shown.
We are writing our club’s story since our very first adventure. We were captured by the world itself, we discovered all kinds of wonderful corners of our planet. We were taught to take pictures and also to put our cameras away, because sometimes it’s not what you look at, it’s what you see that counts.
Inspired by everything we saw we opened a hostel in Vilnius, later on another one in Nida, and finally we opened a campsite in the heart of Vilnius. Seeing all these travelers passing through we realized that we could make their stay even more interesting!
And here we are – the first members of Travel Addicts Club. We are trying hard to gather our kind of addicts around. Even while you are reading this, small groups of travelers are strolling through the cobbled streets of Vilnius hearing stories which will never get old.
Vilnius is just the beginning, we have Trakai, Pervalka and other beautiful sights of Lithuania on our mind too. Travel Addicts Club is open for everyone who wants to join us in this mission. As one of our good friends once said: there are two types of addictions – the ones you try to lose and the ones you try to get! Travel addicts will help you with the latter. Welcome to the club!

Alina apparently spent a third of her life travelling. She managed not only to travel, but also to live everywhere from Colorado to Reykjavik, from London to Nida. And when she returned from her travels, she decided to share her joy of discovery with others. Always smiling and full of ideas, she boldly took the mission – to show the most beautiful and unique places of Vilnius and Lithuania for other travelers and explorers. Alina believes that the best travel souvenirs are cake recipes, local music instruments or special knitting patterns, but the most important ones are the genuine stories of local people. So don’t be surprised if your tour with Alina turns into a cultural journey through past and present, spiced up by real life stories.
