What We've Learned in Georgia


For us, the most valuable outcome of travels is the things we learn while travelling around the country. Herewith, we would like to share with you what we have learned during our great time in Georgia!

What We Have Learned in Georgia
  • Tbilisi is a developed young city with a great nightlife
  • The nature in Georgia is their gem
  • People are reserved but friendly
  • They walk very slowly, seem not to be stressed :)
  • The Georgian food is incredibly delicious
  • Georgians are crazy drivers
  • The tunnels don't have lights
  • There are almost no speed signs
  • Watch out for cows, pigs or dogs on the roads
  • The Police own the best buildings in tows/cities
  • We felt quite safe walking around Tbilisi and in other parts of the country
  • It is a relatively cheap destination for travelling
  • Don't believe all the booking.com ratings
  • Many mountain villages have cash machines
  • The service in restaurants and cafes has still some space to improve :)
  • Georgia is maybe still an offbeat destination for West Europeans but not for Eastern Europeans and Central-Asian people
  • It is a bit touristy at the most famous spots in Georgia
  • Many best-known places in the lower Georgian mountains are accessible by a 4WD car
  • Almost 80% of population are Christians
  • The public transport is maybe not the best in quality but the frequency of rides is good
  • Waiting in lines is not their strength
  • Many people smoke, mostly men
