Late Latte: Breakfast culture in Tbilisi

Late Latte: Breakfast culture in Tbilisi

Dear friends, it’s been a while since I shared my Tbilisi tips for the last time! Apologies, apologies. Had some tours to conduct, tasks to complete and holidays to celebrate 🙂 Now a question. Do you know what unites people from Eastern and Western cultures, as they arrive to Tbilisi as tourists? You will never guess. It is a breakfast issue. For many travelers it is just weird that coffeeshops and cafes may start working at 10 or 11 and serve breakfast this late. “Where can I have my coffee and pastry at 8-9 AM?” – that’s what I hear from people who

Tbilissi City Break avec tous les détails

Maintenant, encore une fois, je pense qu’il est temps de vous donner un bref aperçu de mes endroits préférés, ceux que je peux vraiment recommander. Alors vous avez acheté votre billet et cherchez l’endroit où séjourner? À Tbilissi, il y a plusieurs nouvelles auberges et hôtels, qui sont bien, confortables et bien situés.

5 Thrilling Places to Enjoy Wine in Tbilisi

5 Thrilling Places to Enjoy Wine in Tbilisi

Once my mum asked me what I was doing, and I sent her a snapshot of me sitting in the newly opened wine bar in Kutaisi with a glass of Krakhuna (crispy local white wine) in front of me. “Does your hand ever rest from holding a glass?”, mum joked, but the joke had a taste of homemade Tsolikouri: it was straight, honest and not very clear at the same time. But what can I do? That was her and my dad who took me to my first tastings in Ukraine, and now, as I live in Georgia, level of

Les Oasis des pigistes de Tbilissi

Les Oasis des pigistes de Tbilissi

Depuis que je suis arrivé ici en 2013, j’ai remarqué de plus en plus des gens qui viennent à Tbilissi non seulement pour expérimenter la version géorgienne de “hakuna matata”, mais aussi pour travailler et créer. Bien sûr, une chambre d’hôtel ou un appartement airbnb n’est pas toujours l’endroit le plus inspirant, donc les questions sur les endroits pratiques pour les pigistes ont commencé à apparaître plus souvent. Comme vous pouvez le deviner, je travaille également durant mes week-ends, passant mon temps avec des ordinateurs portables et des bloc-notes dans divers endroits autour de Tbilissi, buvant des dizaines de tasses

Arrivé à Kutaisi, Géorgie: E apres?

Arrivé à Kutaisi, Géorgie: E apres?

En septembre 2016, WizzAir a lancé de nouvelles connexions entre la Géorgie et l’Italie, l’Allemagne, Chypre  et la Grèce. Je comprends que les nouveaux arrivants peuvent être confondus avec ce que la Géorgie est réellement, je vais vous donner quelques conseils, où aller et quoi voir, si vous voyagez avec WizzAir à l’aéroport de Kutaisi. Dans la mythologie grecque, vous avez peut-être trouvé le nom Colchis, n’est-ce pas? C’était le royaume géorgien occidental! Jason et les Argonautes étaient à la recherche de la Toison d’Or ici. Au Moyen Âge, ce royaume était en train de fleurir … Dans son âge

10 Entertaining Things To Do In Georgia

10 Entertaining Things To Do In Georgia

As a person who already knows something about the Georgian tourism, I can tell you for sure that most people usually travel here for our great food, for affordable natural wine accompanied by Borjomi water afterwards, for this weird mixture of old and new, and for the Black Sea. Then, maybe, there are mountains and couple of important churches in the list. To me, it is SO SAD! Without a doubt: milky cheeses, variety of fruits and herbs, flavorous spices and fresh hot khachapuri can make you hungry even as you read about them. Seaside is also good, especially in Gonio

Things You Have To Consider Before Going To Israel

Things You Have To Consider Before Going To Israel

So after one week in the Holy Land I am back. Pleasantly tired and feeling a bit more confident, I’m getting used to +10 and wind instead of +25 and sun, and to the domination of one religious branch instead of many. In Israel I stayed in the families of my good friends that gave me an incredible experience of real life, and also managed to take some independent steps around the country. This all will result in a short list of tips. The rest – amazing food, incredible nature and overwhelming cultural life – is the subject to a

Gastronomic secrets of Tbilisi: a delicious route through the capital

Gastronomic secrets of Tbilisi: a delicious route through the capital

In 2016 I had the opportunity to cooperate with the Israeli channel TV2 – they asked me to help them with special dishes that are certainly worth a try, once you travel to Tbilisi. My list was quite long, and not all of my favourite dishes and restaurants were included in the program in the end, so I decided to share my tips here. Forgive me, my meat loving friends, but the food I am talking about is totally non-meaty. However, I’m sure you won’t regret following some of my tips. Let’s go explore the culinary scene of Tbilisi!

Neither magnets, nor wine: What to bring from Georgia as a present?

Neither magnets, nor wine: What to bring from Georgia as a present?

In the last couple of years the words “local” and “authentic” became really viral among any kind of travelers. Avoiding tourist traps, finding own paths and making friends with the natives is getting as normal as booking all-inclusive tours 7-10 years ago. In my opinion buying magnets or t-shirts with “I love “blahblah place” are rather a poor taste than real attention. And if you travel to Georgia, what can you bring to your loved ones?
