I am Gigi and I created this blog to inspire people to travel more and leave the typical working life of 9-17.

I would like to share with you the most beautiful beaches and stunning holiday destinations which I visited during our travels. I will also share with you useful tips, travel hacks, and my itineraries for the countries I have been to.

During the 2 years of traveling around the world, my partner Nico was helping me with the blog and content creation. However, after 9 wonderful years together we decided to go different ways. I want to thank him for every help and support from the bottom of my heart. 


I love to explore our beautiful world and my mission is to show other people that it is possible to break through the stereotypical routines and follow your dreams. Life is too short and I want to experience life, not just dream about the destination by looking at the computer screen with lovely wallpapers displaying paradise beaches. I have always wanted to visit these type of places. I feel like we can do better things than being stuck in one place and in one job from 9 till 5.

Beach Addicted is a place where we shared the best holiday destinations we have visited during our travels. I focus on beach destinations as I love the sea, water, and the vision of the tropics. I search for the remote perfect postcard beaches and islands and share them with our lovely audience.

I am Gretka, but friends call me Gigi. Originally from Slovakia, I have lived in 6 foreign countries so far (Italy, UK, Russia, Netherlands, Poland and Germany). 

When I was 18, I left my home country as I always wanted to see the world. Travel to new places, get to know new cultures, see how other people live. Why? It excites me to live in different countries and that’s why I have been moving around since I’m 18. I did my Bachelor’s degree in London in translation and interpreting. After my studies, I decided to go into business and management. However, 3 years working in the retail industry made me realize that I need more in my life. Of course, I learned a lot and I enjoyed working as a Store Manager but with each year my passion for traveling became bigger and bigger.

Why do I love the tropical life?

Ocean and salty water were always something that attracted me and inspired me already in my childhood. As a child, I was often sick, and my parents took me for the first time to Italy to get better. I fell in love with the sea immediately. Since then, I developed a special relationship with the sea. 

“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”



Beach addicted is not only about sipping coconut drinks on stunning beaches, reading a book in a palm’s shadow but also about discovering underwater life, surfing, trying new water sports, hanging out in cool beach bars, dancing under the stars, and listening closely to what the ocean whispers.

Now, who likes to spend some time on the beach?
