In 2014 I unexpectedly found myself with a week of holiday, and tickets to Georgia turned out to be cheap! I had no expectations and was surprised by the beauty of the country.
From the capital Tblisi I went on daytrips to the old capital Mtskheta and the city Gori and also to the Kazbegi region, close to the Russian border.

The hike from Kazbegi to the Gergeti Trinity Church isn’t the easiest (especially in winter) but absolutely worth the effort.
