    Heading West in Georgia

    October 15, 2019 in Georgia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Georgia has so much to offer that we decide to leave the Kazbegi region after a few days, even though we loved it.
    You can't go West through the mountains as South Ossetia has been claimed by the Russians, hence we drive on the Georgian Military Highway almost all the way down South first, before we can finally turn West.
    We spend a couple of days looking at cultural highlights, like the cave city in Uplistsikhe, the Ateni Sioni church (which currently is under restoration), the Mzvoreti monastery (that we hike up to) and then join the Kudlik family again to make our ways up to the mountains once more. This time Svaneti. But before we tackle the pass to go up, we spend one more day around Kutaisi, exploring the Prometheus Cave and the Okatse Canyon and testing some more natural wine.
    Oh, life is beautiful!
