Although the majority of my travel inspiration these days comes from reading blogs and browsing ...
We didn’t actually plan to spend a whole day in Odda. We’d planned to arrive one evening, complete the Trolltunga hike the next day, and then be on a bus back to Bergen the day after. But such is the way with the weather around these parts: you cannot rely on having good conditions along […]
Most years, I don’t start my Christmas shopping until December comes around so I was feeling rather smug this year when I bought my first Christmas present in October. But then I got a bit complacent and now it’s nearly December again! With Black Friday deals now being promoted all over the internet, I figured […]
In August I visited Bergen as part of a fleeting six-day trip around Norway with a friend of mine. Considering the high cost of living in the country (and I’m from the UK, which isn’t a particularly cheap place to live), short breaks here are all I can afford unless I get a better paid […]

When I hopped on a marshrutka from Kutaisi and headed into the mountains of northwestern Georgia, running down a mountain harnessed to a crazy Russian fellow with a parachute strapped to his back was the last thing I anticipated doing with my time there. But, within hours of arriving in Mestia, there I was hundreds […]
All budget flights from the UK land in Kutaisi, and the city is also an interchange point for all public transport between Tbilisi and pretty much anywhere in western Georgia. So, regardless of whether you plan to, you will undoubtedly end up spending some of your time in Georgia, in Kutaisi. We stayed in the […]
