I was going through photos and I realised – I have a lot of photos from Georgia. Well, I was there for three months in 2011. I was surprised to find I had so many I needed to split it into two posts.
I was teaching English there. We started in the capital Tbilisi, went across to Batumi on the Black Sea, which is Georgia’s second city. And then back to Tbilisi for the rest of orientation. I was sent out to a tiny town called Jikhanjuri where I taught in the local school for three months. There were holidays and trips to Batumi and back to Tbilisi. So, here is the first half of my selection of photos. Enjoy!
