If you follow our Instagram account (or my personal Instagram account), Facebook page or my personal Snapchat account, then you would know by now that I have spent most of my whole Eid al Fitr Holiday in a country called GEORGIA.
Of course I will not bore you with such a long post but instead I will share a glimpse of the tour we took plus I am in the process of editing my vlog for this trip so make sure you stay tuned for that since pictures are just not enough to showcase the beauty of the places we visited & the experience as well. 🙂
I traveled to Georgia with my mom & sister and opted to take a tour package from Milano Travel here in Qatar (shout out to Mariann) but once we got to Georgia, G7 Euro Travel & Tours organized our accommodations & arranged our itinerary for the 6 days we stayed there (big thanks to Ghenies & Geraldine for taking care of us!). G7 Euro Travel & Tours also assisted with the 3 days that we spent at Armenia but that will be in a separate post.
If you plan on going to Georgia, I highly recommend that you get in touch with G7 Euro Travel & Tours because they ensure that you have a smooth tour & you take your own time while exploring the simply magnificent tour stops in Georgia, taking pictures and / or savoring the scenery. You will not be pressured to rush and their tour guides are quite polite & helpful in taking all your photo shots which is the most important thing if you are traveling solo…hahaha. 😛
Let’s move on to the pictures then!
Day 1 – June 23, 2017
We were informed by our guide that most of the Georgian Orthodox churches don’t have any chairs for people who attend mass. People simply stand for the whole duration of the mass and the reason behind this is so that they can focus more on what the mass is about.
Taking of photos inside this cathedral was not allowed but I was simply in awe of the interior that I sneakily captured a few shots.
The park is situated at the top of Mount Mtatsminda overlooking the city. It is almost like an amusement park as well since it has a few rides for kids plus a big Ferris Wheel at the edge of the mountain which we sadly missed to ride.
We then proceeded to walk around the city after visiting the park & found ourselves at the Freedom Square & our last stop, David Agmashenebeli Avenue.
That’s it for now but there will be a lot more of photo diaries to come!
