Finally visited Lithuania to complete my tour of the Baltic countries, in spite of threats from the Kremlin.

Even the day before I left Manchester Airport, Russia was threatening Lithuania. Many people may have cancelled travel plans, but for reasons of travel addiction, I chose to visit.
This country needs to be left alone to enjoy their freedom and way of life.
Steeped in history and eccentricity, Vilnius deserves a visit, especially the area of the "Old Town."
Outdoor cafes and restaurants are in abundance and there are many great sights to see.
Vilnius Cathedral, Hill of Crosses, Hill of Three Crosses, Gediminas Castle, St. Anne's Church, Museum of Illusions, KGB Museum, and plenty more.
Walk everywhere, providing it is not the depth of winter. Listen to this podcast for a few ideas.
The city is clean, very safe, welcoming, with an atmosphere of sophistication.
I walked several miles a day, and occasionally stopping for a coffee or a beer if late in the afternoon.
Fly up to the Baltics whether by SAS or Air Baltic. It is a short journey.
Check out my Instagram post for a video clip showing a few highlights,
