This little guy is one that needs to burn off energy- so on his days at home we head out for a walk in our @joolzaus and usually end up at the park. Even though Max has an abundance of energy he will stop and run to tend to his sister as soon as she starts crying- regardless of what he was doing. It really does bring a tear to my eye at how much he loves ‘his bubba’ ❤️ This little boy was born to be a big brother and I have no doubt he will protect his little sister until the end of time.
I’ve kept these since first quarter of 2014 until I opened my HD. I am prodded that by far, this trip is one of my top favorites. Underrated at that time, it was liberating.
It has caused me more to be curious of journeys, of people, of culture, of religion, of the world.
I can clearly recall.
A total breather. It took me for a sweet surprise from my lackluster feel whimpering myself to reverie. One minute then I see myself transported to far-flung areas & encounter Georgian hosts and experience the family kitchen :) And for the longest time that I have abstained myself from drinking alcohol, I was not able to resist their famous ChaCha, which, for me, tastes so much alike with vodka ;P I think I had a max of 5 full shots & would have been able to finish a pitcher if it weren't on a lunchtime. Haha!
I liked the mountainous scenery. At one side are the greeneries, and on the other side, are mountains covered with ice. Churches were ubiquitous (makes sense to have timed it on a Holy Week), allowing to see the difference of Catholics from Christian Orthodox. I found their churches very calm, solemn and serene, filled in with people actively and sincerely participating on the mass being held.I would also wake up early in the morning to wander the nearby streets, going further to more churches and would maximize the rest of the day experiencing a ride on their public train, cable car, people-watching, crossing the Peace Bridge, etc.
At that time was the hype of Ukraine vs. Russia dispute. Georgians whom I've spoken to were apparently quite mummed on their notions. However, as I quote from this post-from Denmark who was there for a Masters Thesis on politics, the nation feels a strong kinship with Ukrainians who has long had a rocky relationship with Moscow. Outcome of the conflict could define Georgia's sovereignty whether Russia succeeds in imposing its exclusive sphere of influence. :)
