It’ll soon be September!
But is it that time of year already?
A few weeks ago, I told you that I was going to the Balkans in the Autumn.
And so it begins!
The British Berliner is going to Georgia!
What in the hell?
Prepare to read on!
No seriously. Why not?
And the prices?
I’ve not yet been to Georgia.
In fact, I’ve never been to the Caucasus!
Isn’t it about time?
It’s surrounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the south-east by Azerbaijan, and covers a territory of 69,700 square kilometres or 26,911 sq. miles, and has a population of about roughly 3.7 million people.
The largest city, which also happens to be the capital city, is Tbilisi.
Most people have never heard of it!
In fact, when I first heard mention of Georgia, I thought it was Georgia – the American state – in the USA.
But it isn’t.
A country in the Caucasus.
A country from the former USSR.
I’m going to Tbilisi!
I’ll be there as a guest of the city of Tbilisi.
Ha! Ha! Ha!
I’ll be there for five (5) days in September and getting to grips with the fact that I’ll be in the historical city with links to the history of the Silk Road, trade, and a diverse mix of fascinating architecture coupled, with beautiful weather (I hope) and fabulous food!
My plans are:
I’ll also be:
I have no idea what awaits me, but it’s going to be awesome!
I’ll be taking the train instead!
Not only that, but I’ll be staying at the historical and yet lovely boutique Museum Hotel Orbelani!
This article is not sponsored, and the anticipation of visiting Georgia, is my very own!
It’s late Summer!
If you’re not in Berlin, you’ve lost your marbles!

Note! I never travel without insurance as you never know what might happen.
I learnt my lesson in Spain. And obviously, in countries like Qatar, where technically the risk is higher, I can’t imagine going that far beyond WITHOUT INSURANCE. No siree! You can get yours here, at World Nomads!
So what are you waiting for?
Thanks a million!
See you in Berlin.
