Caucasus Photo Journal – Week 4: Tbilisi

Our final week in Tbilisi has been a relatively quiet one. There’s been a lot of cafe hopping and time spent behind my laptop catching up on work, starting new projects, and giving my blog a bit of a revamp. We’ve also been making plans for the rest of our time in the region. This week I shared a rough itinerary for the eight-week trip we’re about to embark on through Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia. I’m a little nervous about moving around so much when I still have work to do, but I’m very excited to hit the road again!

The highlight of my week was sharing a home-cooked meal with our incredibly generous and hospitable Airbnb hosts. I also wrote a story this week about Fabrika, my favourite creative hub in Tbilisi.

Yes, there’s some strange stuff for sale at the Dry Bridge Market. Stalin memorabilia, looted chandeliers, and even bearskins.

We happened upon Ethno Design, the Georgian Heritage Craft Association’s shop, by accident. It stocks beautiful handmade products from across the country. I will be posting a story about buying handmade gifts in Tbilisi soon.

A typical lunch for me nowadays – Georgian salad with walnut dressing, a slice of sulguni cheese and a piece of fresh-baked bread. This photo was taken at Keto and Kote. Next week I will also be posting about my favourite restaurants and meals to try in Tbilisi.

Afternoon stroll down Rustaveli Avenue. These book vendors tend to open up in the early afternoon.
