I was recently in Lithuania, the southernmost of the three Baltic counties (the other two are Latvia and Estonia). It’s a quirky country, full of surprises, and it’s well worth a visit.

While you check out the Lithuania Instagram photos, take a listen to our Lithuania podcast: hit play below or find episode 301 in iTunes, Stitcher or Soundcloud:
