Sightseeing marathon around Kutaisi with Racki’s mother and her husband (September 2023)

Racki’s mother and her husband visited us and rented a small apartment in Kutaisi.

This was the start of the craziest sightseeing marathon I ever did. We visited multiple sites a day! And they were for twelve days in Georgia!

So we mostly visited all the attractions in and around Kutaisi.

One day I took a break and repaired my laptop because it was super expensive to have it fixed in Georgia.

The elderly couple was not getting tired of visiting all these places. When we tried to visit a cave, the husband fell down and just when we had stopped him from rolling down a slope, Cindy’s mother fell down as well. They got some abrasions and big bruises, but their spirit of discovery was unbroken!

Although I would never do a marathon like this on my own, we had a lot of fun and we saw a lot of interesting and beautiful places.

This climbing area is falling apart (September 2023)

Racki and I went to the area around Borjomi and went for some more rock climbing.

But the rock was so loose… To me it felt pretty ridiculous to climb there.

Occasionally a whole piece of rock just collapsed under our hands. Wearing a helmet was absolutely necessary and never got hit by so many small rocks.

And it was a pretty crazy experience to climb there and somehow trust the rock to hold my feet and weight although I knew that this would sometimes just not work out. Sometimes I noticed that instead of “will this hold?” I was thinking “will this hold as long as I need it to hold”.

Although I would not recommend anybody to climb there, I’ve to say it was an interesting experience.
