About

Location

The travel club has been running an open house for travellers for a few months every summer for the last years. The concept is similar to a nomadbase except explicitly asks for donations from the community to fund it, but still is free to stay at.

There opened a static Travel School in Liepāja, Latvia, see second Travel School.

"The Travel House is a project we carried each summer by the serbian Travel Club, starting with 2012. Using the money they gather from donations, they rent a flat somewhere in the world, where they establish a temporary base for getting acquainted with the region. Staying in the house is free for everyone. The goal of the Travel House project is to provide a global meeting point for travelers, and thus be a small step towards building a global travel culture."


History

In summer 2012, Serbia Travel Club established a temporary base in Istanbul, called the Travel House. It was a rented apartment in the center of Istanbul, in Besiktas, whose doors were open to all travelers, from July 1 to September 1. Staying in the Travel House was free for everyone. The goal of the Travel House project is to provide a global meeting point for travelers, and thus be a small step towards building a global travel culture. Istanbul Travel House is now closed.

The Travel House 2013 was located in the town of Granada, in Andalucia, Spain. It was open from August 1 till October 1. The house was situated in Albayzin, the oldest part of Granada, just ten minutes on foot from Alhambra. The Granada Travel House is now closed.

After Istanbul and Granada, our Travel House is moving to Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. All travelers can stay there for free, between July 1 and September 1 2014. The Travel House is a place for travelers to sleep, eat, get to know each other, connect, share stories, experiences and skills. It’s a small step towards building a global culture of independent, exploratory and creative travels, but above all a step towards building a culture of solidarity and understanding of our planet. Travel House in Tbilisi, more visited than ever before, has successfully ended in 2014.

The fourth annual Travel House project was carried out in Athens, the capital of Greece. All travelers could stay there for free between July 1 and September 1, 2015. The Travel House is a place for travelers to sleep, eat, get to know each other, connect, share stories, experiences and skills. It's a small step towards building a global culture of independent, exploratory and creative travels, but above all a step towards building a culture of solidarity and understanding of our planet. The Athens Travel House 2015 has ended.

After four years of the Travel House, the time has come to change the concept. Join us in the Travel School in Aveiro, on the Atlantic coast in Portugal, an hour from Porto. The Travel School in Aveiro is closed
