Browsing through my photos of Tbilisi, Georgia, was a slightly surreal experience. Was I really in Tbilisi last summer? Did I actually spend four days in the Republic of Georgia, a tiny country located on the other side of the world?
I wasn’t in Tbilisi long, but immediately, I was smitten. Georgia’s capital city is quirky, colorful, and full of street art — a place where you are as likely to stumble upon a trendy wine bar as you are to find a flea market full of dusty Soviet relics.
Also, if you aren’t already acquainted, please meet Khachapuri, the boat-shaped, cheese-filled dough ball you’ll see below. It’s a delicious dish native to Georgia that I fell in love with. And it’s probably the reason I gained five pounds on my trip to Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Russia.
Here are some of my favorite photos of Tbilisi, and ones I hope will inspire you to visit someday:
