Life in the north-east of Georgia has not been changing for centuries. The region still has dangerous roads and unfavorable nature, the population of sheep is higher than the population of people.

  1. Georgia today is a very nice country to visit for a holiday in the mountains or at the seaside. I have been there three times – several weeks – nice country, nice people and very nice food and wine. Oh, and did I mention very low cost?
