Blogger mg5642 has shared the best pictures of a trip to beautiful Svaneti, the mountainous paradise of Georgia. The main places he visited were Adishi and Ushguli villages full of interesting architecture. You can imagine how nice it is to be there, on a green valley neighbouring huge glaciers, how clean that air is, what a wonderful silence embraces you…
