Hi sis,
ito yung original IT namin. hindi namin napuntahan lahat. hehe. it all depends on your budget at resistensiya... hahaha. kakapagod din kasi. medyo tight ang schedule kasi kapag gabi ay nagna-night out pa kami eh. :D

Day 1: Kakheti / signagi / bodbe monastery / david gareja

Day 2: Gremi / Telavi / Ujurma Fortress/ Nekresi/ Alaverdi / Tsindali / Shuamta

Day 3: Gori / Uplistsikhe/ mtskheta

Day 4: Tbilisi

We explored Tbilisi on the last day kasi ang flight namin ay early evening pa. so, nung umaga kami nag explore ng city. A day before kami bumili ng mga souvenirs. Dun din naman sa city makakabili eh. Good thing na yung accomodation namin ay malapit sa ilang mga sites sa city so we did night exploration na lang to save time plus punta sa mga bar, to listen to georgian music. ;)

Canon 60D sis. 17-85mm lens. perfect walk-around lens for me. :)

Sis, anong flights kinuha ninyo? Do you need a transit visa for any stopovers?

Qatar Airways... visa upon arrival kami to Georgia. $35.
As for stop-overs.. Qatar and Baku, hindi naman kami lumabas ng airport so, hindi na kami kumuha ng visa. Otherwise, if you plan to explore the 2 other countries, i think you do need to get respective visas.

sis can you give us feedback on the trip expenses? saan at how much ang hotel cost nyo? TIA ;D

Sis, galing kasi kami ng UAE eh. kaya yung airfare ay medyo mura.. around 11K pesos..return na. UAE-Georgia-UAE
hotel + food + pasalubong + etc = ginastos ko ay USD 350 (1 person)
hostel lang kasi kami. but we got a very recommendable one. 85 GEL (georgian lari) ang room namin per night, which we split into 2. good for 4 actually yung room. may 2 doubledeck beds inside. since we want privacy, kahit 2 lang kami, kinuha na namin yun. makakatipid kung mas marami.

Envoy Hostel sis. within sa town center lang siya. maraming pasyalan na walking distance. as for commuting, ok lang sa train pero yung mga mini bus kasi hindi umaalis hangga't hindi puno so mahirap for baby.  :-\   pero you can always take the cab. :) yun lang, karamihan sa mga cabs ay walang metro. so you have to deal the fare price first BEFORE you get inside.

I am so delighted that I've come across this thread! Non-schengen Visa Destination, Yey!!!  ;D

Georgeous pics, sis cind3r3lla! :) Thanks for sharing!  ;)

The USD 350 budget per person for accomodation/food/transpo is good for the entire 4-day trip na?

^hi sis southpaw...

yep, per person yung USD 350 budget. kung medyo magastos ka, siguro max na ang USD500.. yan ay kung every meal ay sa classy na hotel kayo kakain. hehe. pero i assure you, ang sarap ng food nila kahit sa not-so-pricey na resto lang. hehe.

Wow! The USD 350 budget for a four day stay is not bad at all!  ;)

Sis, 2 lang kayo? Did you arrange for a private car with driver para dun sa malalayong places? Or you took the public transportation? I've not decided whom I tag along kasi if matuloy ang trip ko - either the mom or the bf. How's the hike going to the Narikala Fortress, steep ba masyado? Baka kasi mahirapan naman mom ko if sya kasama ko.

If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.

^hi sis, yes 2 lang kami. we usually hired a private car kasi yung mga public transportation, hindi dumadaan dun sa mga yun o kaya masyadong maraming time masasayang kakahintay ng passengers. hindi kasi umaalis yung mga buses hanggat hindi puno eh.

narikala Fortress, medyo steep nga pero kaya naman siguro ni mother pero patigil-tigil kayo. halfway dun may coffeeshop naman. btw, yung hostel na tinuluyan namin ay malapit na malapit sa NF. so, kahit gabi pwede namin syang puntahan.
