I didn’t know about Georgia country much than the Georgia state of United States of America. The capital Tblisi will take you to another world that is rich in culture and unique experience that is hard to forget.
Believe me, you will lose your heart after visiting this land. This heavenly place on earth will leave you memories that are hard to forget LOL. My friend Begnu from Tblisi gave me a lot of information about this country and I started to research about it. This country is the top choice by travelers across the world for budget travel. Although I am based in the middle east as an expat, there is no reason that I cannot visit this magnificent land.
Since I am holding a Philippine passport, I realized that it is possible for me to get there. Travelers can get an e-visa online by paying the visa fee depending on your nationality of country of origin. Since I am based in Saudi Arabia with residence permit I only need to pay the fee online, buy cheap flight and go!
So before going to this country, here are some important facts about Georgia that you should now:
Vineyard and the Wine
The fantastic wine production of the country particularly in Kakheti is the main wine producing in the country’s east. Wine grapes have been cultivated in these lands of 8,000 years. The word wine came from a Georgian word Vino. Clay barrels is still being used nowadays and festival of wine is the most spectacular event of Georgian calendar!
Meet Its Flora and Fauna
No doubt that Georgia is the most ecologically and culturally diverse in the world with dramatic landscapes and awesome climate zones. I grew up in a country where I enjoyed much tropical weather. Now, living and spending my time in Saudi Arabia for two years where I somewhat enjoys its vast deserts and the coolest place that I can visit, Georgia made me ran out of words every time I describes it to my friends. Is it because it has an unspoiled wilderness!
Since I don’t travel fast and be a tourist for life, I want to learn the culture of Georgia as much as I can. I came to know that Georgian has a strong identity and that has helped to preserve the Georgian distinctiveness despite of foreign occupation not only once. As a Filipino, I also came to a point that I am confused with my identity. Am I really a Filipino? Why we do have a strong Spanish culture more than a native one? Why do I speak Spanish fluently at home? But in Georgia, I was surprised that they were able to preserve of what is really a Georgian culture.
Summer Camp in Tblisi
Camping is one of the activities that you can expect in Georgia. Thank to Begnu of Adventour Georgia for giving me insights about this activity.
