It's great to be here survey cited to hear your stories especially since you travel so much throughout the year and i can't wait to hear the crazy driving experiences that you've had during those travels. So what would you say. Is the most craziest or most interesting driving experience. You've had well. I have had a quite a few about two years ago. Almost exactly and i was in tbilisi georgia. I adjust arrive my first trip there and my local tour operator. Pick me up at the airport. And it'd traffic didn't seem like much to me. But i could tell she was a little bit hesitant driving. I'm the passenger and so she was just kind of taking her time and going slowly being very cautious which was fine and then she says. Don't worry about my driving tomorrow. My father's gonna us. And i'll be able to talk to you and answer your questions to concentrate on the road to be honest in the back of my mind. I'm like oh great i was. I was kind of happy about that.

So the next day her father and her pick me up at my hotel. He's an older gentleman. And that's you know that's fine. But i'm thinking okay. Great experienced driver. We're gonna be fine so little.

I think two days with them driving about eight hours a day because they were showing me all around the area which is great and my tour. Operators do this all the time in. Can't be more thankful so.

Travel to Tbilisi and Eastern Georgia

"The traveler. I'm your host Chris. Christensen let's talk about Georgia. I like to welcome back to the show. Tomo and Mexi from food FUN TRAVEL DOT COM who've come to talk to us about the Republic of Georgia's we're gonNA start with intimacy and head east. Tomo it makes me welcome back to the show. Hey thanks as always glad to be on the shore tomorrow makes me Williams. I didn't say your last name. Yes that's not married since we love to see you thank you. I didn't mention that I think because I not used to referring you'd as the same last name and someone makes me. We're on the show once previously in Philippines wherever the Yucatan Mexico you could join. That's right that's right. The more recent episode we have on the Yucatan merita excellent will. Why are we talking about the Republic of Georgia well? We actually moved to Tbilisi about a year ago. It's our third time living here the second time where here. We got married here a few months after that we decided we actually wanted to live here permanently and now we do so. We used to live in Merida Mexico for a while. That's why we talked to you about that a couple of years ago and now we live Tbilisi so when you say permanently. This is permanently from the context of a travel blogger which means more than a couple of months. I think this is more permanent than decisions. Cassia already almost a year and we've got no intention of leaving at this point. And why should someone else come to the Republic of Georgia? I would say the main draw here is firstly. It's quite undiscovered. It's a little bit out of the way for most travelers but it's beginning a huge amount of press internationally recently especially because of the food and the wine. It is the birthplace of wine according to the most recent archaeological evidence. And but yeah and that's eight thousand years old eight thousand years ago. They found pottery stained with wine from eight thousand years ago so at a definitive evidence that it was actually going on. People were making wine and drinking wine interesting. And what kind of itenerary are you going to recommend for US? So obviously there will be some wine to try but there's also a lot of history here because we're right in the e east-meets-west sort of area. We are nestled between the Caspian Sea and Black Sea with Russia to the north and Turkey to the South West and on Mesnier and Azerbaijan to the south and the east. So there's been a huge influence of all these different coaches for the itinerary. We're GONNA start off in the capital Tiblisi and it is quite a big city with a lot of history so this was founded in the fifth century. Ad. So it has been around for a long time. There's lots of different things to see when you fly in on the first day the flights that come in from the US and via Turkey or quite early. Morning arrivals cold yes. So we'd say the first day that you'RE GONNA be here. It's probably going to be a solid half day of recovering and sleeping and then you have like a half day in the afternoon to go out and see some things and then enjoy the evening and then have a secondary Tiblisi. It's quite a fun city and there's a lot to do here day. Three we'd be heading east towards Kakheti. Which is the primary Wine Region? But of course it's also a very historic region that changed hands between different cultures the Persians Arabs. And of course the Jordan's at the moment firstly we'd be heading to the hill town. Well it's a mountain town of Cigna guy the city of La City of love actually a town. But it's very beautiful nestled on a little hilltop with views down the valley and towards the Caucasus Mountains in the distance the next day staying in the wine region and moving too quickly which is right down in the valley. It's like a very central part of the wine region down there where the river valley runs through where the river runs through the Amazon Valley is the name of the valley and then day five heading north through the valley towards to Lavi which is the capital of Kakheti region. Kakheti actually used to be an independent state for a while as well with separate from Georgia. Now it's integrated with Georgia Day six. We'll be heading back towards Tiblisi through Tiblisi. And then there's a number of important historic sites just north of Tiblisi which include the ancient capital before Tiblisi. Which is called mosquito and also hopeless. Which is an ancient cave town slightly to the west of mosquito and also towards. Gori which was the birthplace of Stalin. And this will wind in that area for people who are real wine lovers. You can have some different wine region. They different groups in different regions. Definitely thinks to explore and then heading back on the seventh day towards Tbilisi so that people can catch they're flying out or if people flying out of Kutaisi. Which is the other main airport then heading from gory towards Kutaisi. Which is about a three hour drive so this couple of flexible options bad us the refinery excellent and we'll go back through that in more detail so before we get into that we should say that although it may be undiscovered it's not undiscovered on amateur travellers to other episodes of the first one at least ten years ago and the second one more recently and so we'll put links to those in the show notes and Tillman makes me have listened to the most recent one of those two so some of the things that are mentioned in there they may skip over. We'll see how that works for time but you started us in Tiblisi. Yeah so let's talk about. Maybe doing a walking tour covers some of the attractions. A few of these mentioned in the previous episode. But it's definitely worth mentioning a few of them again just briefly so that people get a general feel for it. Yes I mean generally in Tiblisi. It's this really vibrant city to visit. You can go out almost any time of day or night. And they'll be people out and about doing stuff in a good wholesome way. There's like restaurants that are our opinion as Baas. The repin sort of dining really is a little bit anytime. A food and wine is exceptionally important. Culturally he'll and as I mentioned earlier. It is surrounded by all of these really strong cultures. But when you actually come to Georgia and come to Tbilisi you'll realize just how unique the culture is here as well so there are definitely influences from those other places but it is very very strongly George into the core. They have their own alphabet one of the unique alphabets of the world. Always done that. Okay so some people say that has some similarity to Amin but when you look at it really doesn't lie. The symbols of very very different says a completely unique alphabet and lots of unique words and the way people pronounce stuff tight is one of the hardest languages to learn. For sure will. In one of the things I've always had trouble with with Georgia in on the amateur travellers site is I take every country and I- lump it into a continent and Georgia. I have placed in Europe. But you look at a map and it looks like I don't know what I'm talking about. Yeah exactly I think Georgia in particular would consider themselves Europe and I think visiting. Here's a country. I also would just architecturally and culturally. I would consider it Europe as well definitely like Eastern Europe. But as you said if you look on a map would probably consider it to be Asia. I sometimes have a hard time putting my time zones in I can never find Tiblisi in a time when I'm changing from different countries. It's because it's always like nestled in Asia. But I think I would definitely say Europe and if we head straight south would get to Armenia Iran and Iraq and so Armenia. I would also be one of those that I would put in Europe culturally but Iran Iraq. I was certainly not Oshawa. John is just to the east and Turkeys just to the West. But it's the usual part of Turkey's eight is one of those as you say regions where cultures meet. Yes and I think at least from that perspective. It's because of the Orthodox religion right the Docs Christianity. I founded in Armenia in the fourth century or late third century century earlier than that. Armenia was the first Christian nation the first nation where Christianity became the main religion so it predates Rome becoming Christian in the three hundreds in Georgia was the second country they took on not too long after that. The estimate is somewhere between three nine three twenty six. Ad Different people have different opinions. And that was when Georgia took on the Orthodox religion poorly Al mentioned a little bit about that when we talk about some of the important attractions that relate to that a bit later on.

So there's wanted to laws wanted the right to access those is different in the cities than it's here. Don't bother about sometimes. Two young Saudi Arabian women who fled their families to Georgia early. This week have now been invited to play missile him in the country.

They registered a Twitter account. And this is how they became known really to the outside world and here in Georgia's. Well, they made this desperate plea for help. They posted a short video clip on the Twitter account, which they named Georgian sisters, and they said that their life was endanger, they also claim that they may relatives they were present in Georgia.

What is likely to happen? Now is it going to be easy for them to get asylum in Georgia? Well, it's interesting. I think it's quite an interesting question. Because now that this case has become such a high profile case because of the publicity all I can say is that the procedure might take up to six months they've been taken to a temporary shelter while they case is being decided, but it's up to the Georgian government now to decide on on the status and now has some of stories for news desk.
