Shaggy, dance battles and city life in Batumi (August 2023)

We went back to Batumi and met again with our friend Zdenko the tricycle traveler we have met a couple of times in different countries already.

Together we went climbing, living at the beach, and to a dark, rough hard rock bar and let the jukebox play Shaggy. It was hilarious and we had a lot of fun dancing and trying different Chacha shots.

Racki and I went to a small festival at the promenade and had a dance battle with some Georgian teenagers to old Eminem songs! This was at least as hilarious as Shaggy in the hard rock bar.

And we had the best ice cream. A lot of it. At Luca Polare. Give it a try.

All of this 😁

What a lost place: a night in Tskaltubo (July 2023)

The next day we went to Tskaltubo. What a place!

It’s an old, lost rehabilitation area from the Soviet times and it’s absolutely fantastic to visit it.

The whole area is as big as a small town and it’s full of abandoned buildings. Some of them are as big as hotels and some of them are not completely abandoned.

When we walked through one of these empty buildings out of the sudden one door opened and an elderly woman stepped out on the floor in front of us. Pretty exciting experience.

We parked Rosinante in the yard in front of one of the buildings and slept for one night in a kind of a big balcony.

When we were exploring this huge lost place, a real gang of stray dogs accompanied us. At times we had thirteen of these fellows with us. And everyone of them had thousands of parasite friends with him.

Before we left that place, Cindy cut the fur of one of them because he was towing a big bunch of it behind him and collected all sorts of stuff while doing so.

See it on Google Maps.
