Four-Day Western Georgia Road Trip

As Georgia is slowly reopening, I wanted to finally write about the trip Sean and I took with my parents in early March. They managed to sneak in and out of Georiga before the craziness with COVID-19 really kicked off for the entire world. While they were here, we embarked on a four-day driving trip […]

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 […]

Great Uzbek Adventure Part 3: Bukhara

We drove into Bukhara in a dust storm. It was incredibly windy that day and since Bukhara is right on the edge of the desert sand had whipped up around us and it felt like a totally different planet. I’ve read The Martian. I know what can happen in dust storms. It was a bit […]

Great Uzbek Adventure Part 2: Samarkand

I’ll just go ahead and be up front with you guys. I have almost no patience for museums, historical sites, and touring around churches and cathedrals. I much prefer a quick browse, a few photos, and then to be on my way. And by on my way I usually mean back to eating. Sean lives […]
