Caucasus Photo Journal – Week 10: Kutaisi and Batumi

Every Friday during our three-month trip through the Caucasus I plan to publish a short series of photos that sums up the week that was.

This week we officially arrived in Western Georgia and were greeted with an altogether different landscape and climate. The dry semi-desert of Kakheti has been replaced with lush forests and constant drizzle (we don’t even mind the rain). Our first stop was the sweet city of Kutaisi, where we split our time between working in vintage-themed cafes, and exploring canyons and waterfalls. We then made our way to Batumi, where we’ve rented an apartment for the next week so I can catch up on some projects. We haven’t been down to the Black Sea coast during the day yet, but Batumi’s Old City is absolutely stunning.

No day tour in Georgia is complete without a monastery visit. The frescoes here are particularly beautiful.
