Wow, this trip to Georgia country has been such an amazing experience! To get a quick overview: watch the vlog above this post. And if you more of a reader: keep on reading! Last October (2018) we went to this beautiful country lying in Eurasia. Though some people state that this country only lies in Europe (the country definitely has some European characteristics), the truth is that – geografically speaking – the country lies in both the Asian as the European continent. Now that we got that all sorted out, we just have to share the incredible time we had over here. To start: the people. Really, we did not meet any Georgian that wasn’t kind, welcoming and happy. A treat, if you’d ask us.

WHAT TO EAT IN GEORGIA, COUNTRY

There are a lot of great restaurants around the country. We travelled to a lot of different places and tries all kinds of food. Our most important advise regarding Georgian cuisine: just try and order the dishes that seem most attractive to you. Since most of the served food throughout the whole country is beyond fresh, it’s hard to go wrong when ordering. Most enjoyable are the traditional treats and dishes: churchkhela, khinkali, ajapsandali, Borjomi sparkling water and fresh matsoni by chef Giorgi of Arge hotel. Arge hotel & wine cellar is also the favourite place we stayed at during our visit to Georgia. Giorgi and staff taught us a lot about the Georgian cuisine and Anna and Rezo made us feel at home in another country.
