The Georgian capital

Georgia is a beautiful country steeped in history and I have thoroughly enjoyed my short stay here. The capital, Tbilisi, is a charming city and a great place to explore on foot at a leisurely pace. It’s a great place to base yourself, and to enjoy good food, wines, and to take in a show or two.

I can definitely see myself coming back here, perhaps to do a multi-day trek, or simply spend more time in the mountains, and maybe even see another church or two!

Today marks the end of this leg of my trip. Rita and I travelled together for six weeks, covering Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Georgia and it’s been good fun not to mention educational. She is a great travel companion and I am very thankful for her company and all the translation she has done! Without Russian, things definitely would have been a lot more challenging. So, thank you, Rita!

Rita returns to Riga today while I will be heading to Spain, predominantly to spend time with Liza, my dear friend from college days in her new adopted hometown of Solsona near Barcelona. I look forward to many good yarns, red wines, suckling pigs and interesting stories.
