Wordless Wednesday #13 "Georgia"

I have always been skeptical about short trips. I used to think that when you are short of days and in a rush, that will cause more anxiety and stress than joy and pleasure. 
But when the opportunity occurred to take a short vacation to my homeland and our neighbour country, Georgia, I had no second thoughts.

And I must say that this trip was really worth it.

The 10 days were so full of events and new people and new experiences that it felt like a whole month. We were back fully recharged and energized. I especially liked that nature was in full bloom, the weather was excellent to wander around the city instead of going sightseeing under the killing sun of summer.

So, this Wednesday, I will feature the new country that I visited for the first time: Georgia and its capital city, Tbilisi.



Tbilisi, Georgia
 Georgia (Sakartvelo in the Georgian language) is a country that has developed rapidly in the past decades. It's an ideal place for any tourist. Old, narrow streets in the Old Tbilisi keep the traces of the old Georgian culture and its history. You may find yourself stopping by any house to just admire its authenticity and uniqueness.

On the other hand, you will find amazing and jaw-dropping modern structures and buildings in the city center. Fully charge your phone and camera as you will want to take a photo at every corner in Rustaveli Avenue.

Even though not every Georgian speaks English, you will never feel lost in Georgia. Money exchange shops, phone recharge centers, public transport, and tourist information spots are available at every corner. If you need help, try to turn to the younger generation as they are most likely to speak English.

    1. You should, especially when you can't afford the expensive European countries, plus most citizens don't need a visa to enter Georgia.
