Restaurant Roundup: Wine Bars of Tbilisi

Well, it’s that time again. This month I’m bringing you a special edition of Restaurant Roundup, focused on my favorite wine bars and shops. This has been a long time coming, and is inspired by this very consistent conversation: Me/Sean/Both of Us: Oh! We found this wine at WineMe. Them: What’s WineMe…? Me/Sean/Both of Us: […]

Borjomi

It seems we are trying to pack in as much traveling as possible this month, even if that means we are only gone for about 24 hours at a time. Makes sense, seeing as 1) this country is amazingly beautiful and fun, and 2) we are missing out on a month of travel opportunity since […]

Kazbegi

Kazbegi has been on our must-see list since we arrived. Everyone talks about it. Everyone posts photos from here. Everyone loves this little slice of Georgian paradise. We finally managed to sneak away for a weekend in Stepantsminda for some hiking, relaxing, and much-needed quality time. Plus, Stepantsminda is the perfect spot for beautiful photos […]

My First Trip to Mtskheta

Mtskheta is located so close to our neighborhood in Tbilisi that it’s astounding to me that my first trip to this intriuging little town only occurred last weekend. I haven’t even been to Mtskheta on accident – which is very possible; if you miss the last U-turn on the highway going north, you have no […]

Denver

I feel like this post is pretty unnecessary. It’s basically going to be me telling you how awesome Denver is, not that you needed another millennial doing so. But I love Denver and want to talk about it, so here we are. The last time I was in Denver was 2009, and when I told […]

National Botanical Garden of Georgia

Something I took for granted as a kid was living within walking distance to a large, expansive park. I fondly remember going to the playground, the nature center, and the botanical gardens as a kid. Sean and I even got married in those very gardens. It’s my happy place. When we moved to Annapolis the […]

Baku

Baku is only a short and smooth 55-minute plane ride from Tbilisi. I did only the tiniest bit of research before this trip since we were going to be at the track for most of our time, and I figured since Azerbaijan is Georgia’s neighbor, they would be at least relatively similar. I was so […]

Azerbaijan Grand Prix

This was a trip that’s been in the works for about seven years. Ever since we saw the Monaco┬ápractice back in 2012, I knew it was only a matter of time before we finally made it to a full race weekend. It just so happens that 1) we live in a country next door to […]

Restaurant Roundup: May 2019

Um. Excuse me. How has it already been two months since I posted the last Roundup? Where is the time going? Also, how have we been here almost a full year already? That’s crazy. Anyway. Here’s my top five (give or take) for this month. Top Five Restaurants: Azarpheshia: This is one of the famous […]

Throwback Thursday: Venice

Well, here we are. The final installment of the Europe 2012 trip. After our tumultuous time in Tuscany, we were quite ready to ditch any form of vehicular transportation for a relaxing last few days in Venice. I was excited, albeit a bit terrified, about staying in a floating city, but I was looking forward […]
