    Abanotubani-quarter

    September 20, 2017 in Georgia

    Today we walked around in the Abanotubani neighbourhood - real nice! Took the cable car, enjoyed a nice view over whole Tsibili, the mother of Georgia and the castle, checked out the botanical garden and had a nice body rub incl. hammamlike massage in the sulfur bath no. 5 - feeling very clean now 😉

    Tiflis, Tag 3

    September 20, 2017 in Georgia

    Wir haben wirklich viele schöne Städte auf dieser Reise gesehen, aber Tiflis mischt die Top 5 auf! Super tolle Altstadt, tolle Bars und Restaurants.
    Heute gab's das Schloss, ein paar Kirchen, den botanischen Garten und zum Schluss das Schwefel Bad, inklusive Massage. Ein Traum.

    Tbilisi

    July 20 in Georgia

    Ab heute allein in Tbilisi-ausser ich bekomme bald noch Besuch, was ich ja sehr hoffe;)
    Einige schöne neue Ecken und viele Kaffeestopps haben zu einem entspannten, ruhigen Tag beigetragen. Ich war total happy, bei einer alten Frau eingelegte Auberginen und Käse kaufen zu können und den beim Wasserspiel vor der Oper auf einer Bank im Schatten essen zu können, ohne dabei gestört zu werden. So ist reisen extrem angenehm!Read more

    Tbilisi

    July 20 in Georgia

    Cafe-Hopping...ich liebe das! Vom schicken Frühstückscafe in die hippe Bar, immer eine Parallelstrasse zur Hauptstrasse. Es hat sich gelohnt! Der kleine süsse Laden, der bis ins Detail durchgestylt ist, macht Kaffee und frische Säfte. Super cool!

    Metekhi Church, Tbilisi

    April 29 in Georgia

    After just a few hours of sleep (and a huge breakfast) we are full of energy to face our first day in Georgia. We have a pretty dense programme and we therefore decide to sacrifice some sleep to leave earlier than planned.

    After driving alongside the Mtkvari (or Kura) river, the bus drops us off in Europe Square, at the feet of a rocky outcrop on the top of which an impressive church overlooks the old city and the Mtkvari river. We walk up to a panoramic terrace from which we enjoy a spectacular view of Tbilisi: the capital city of Georgia lies at the feet of the so-called Holy Mountain and is crossed by a river. On the top of the mountain we can clearly see the Narikala Fortress and, a bit farther up towards the top, an impressive statue of a woman.

    After covering our head and legs (apparently trousers are not allowed inside religious buildings) we briefly visit the Metekhi Church, but we have to keep our visit short as a mass is being celebrated.
    Before walking back down to Europe Square to continue the tour of the centre of Tbilisi, we have some time to take a few more pictures and I have the chance to make the acquaintance of a crazy slightly senior Canadian and, most importantly, of a super sweet fluffy dog that seems to like selfies. I know.... differenti continent, same old habits. 😊😊😊

    Old Town, Tbilisi

    April 29 in Georgia

    We leave the Metekhi Church to go back to the old town and continue our tour. On the way down we stop at a kiosk selling some local delicacies: some very tempting sausages hanging from the ceiling of the shop convince us to try some. Well, they prove to be quite delicious indeed... despite the fact that the "sausages" turn out to be some kind of honey-and-unidentified-nuts rolls 😂. We will later find out that it's a local specialty called Churchkhela and its considered "candle-shaped candy. Seeing sausages everywhere is a clear sign that I have been living in Germany for way too long... 😣

    After this first encounter with the Georgian cuisine, we proceed towards Europe square, where a piece of the Berlin Wall is still standing. It's weird to see a piece of old dear Germany in this remote region in the Caucasus.
    Before getting on our bus we stop by a "lovers bench", where we obviously take some extremely serious pictures...
    Time is running: we have to go!

    Bridge of Peace, Tbilisi

    April 29 in Georgia

    After leaving the wonders of the Sulphur Baths, we realise that we are (not so surprisingly) behind schedule. Our guide urges us to walk back towards the Metekhi Church to explore the area at the feet of the rocky outcrop. The problem is that having 30 people walk together and move fast is not an easy one. I have the feeling our poor guide will need a while to recover from this trip (or maybe I should say... "recover from us"? 🤔).

    We pass again in front of the "Berlin Wall" and then we proceed towards a weird-looking tube-shaped glass building that we promptly baptise "Cannelloni". Some minutes later we discover that, despite the disrespectful nickname we have just picked for it, it's a world-renowned concert hall... Shame on us!

    After crossing an intresting tree-like metal statue, we proceed towards a glass bridge crossing the Kura River: the so-called Bridge of Peace. While walking through it we get amazing glimpses of Tbilisi. I am already falling in love with this city!
    When we finally get to the opposite river bank, we find the bus already waiting for us. But, as we are about to leave, we realise that three people are missing! And it's only day one...😓😓😓
