Georgia – the country, not the state – is still relatively undiscovered as a tourist destination (but we certainly weren’t bored!). We stayed in the capital of Tbilisi for almost two weeks – and were awed and charmed by the city.
The architecture ranges from barely standing to brand spanking new and the letters of the alphabet are more beautiful than decipherable. During our time in the Tbilisi, we were content to wander the maze of street, hike up to the centuries old fortress, peer into new and ancient Orthodox churches, soak in the naturally heated water in the bathhouses and gorge on local dishes of spiced meat.
