Waiting time: 4 hours
Pretty decent waiting time, combined with the lunch in local supermarket. We had some doubts about this place – the suspicious locals, who were walking back and forth, were constantly gazing at our bags. Sun was a few hours from setting and we were getting worried that we […]

Waiting time: 10 minutes
Hitchhiking in the middle of the city is usually waste of time so we took a cheap marshrutka to the big road that takes cars out of the city and tried our luck there. We were lucky as the next car that stopped offered to take us relatively close to the border.

Waiting time: 20 min
Getting to Kutaisi from Batumi is easy – just follow the main road until the traffic is only exiting the city, write a sign in English and Georgian letters (might take 5 mins to prepare) and wave it off.
Most probably you will have to shoo off some marshrutka drivers and s […]

How often can you stay that you are stepping on the balcony of Europe and taking a look over the vast Asia? We have reached Georgia and here it is possible! This place is just something unique yet something so familiar, that to actually understand it, you have to see it yourself. Their alphabet look […]
