Podcast #087: Georgia – Country of Cheese and Garlic

Welcome to Episode 087 of my “Travel Tales From Beyond The Brochure” podcast.

This is part two of an overview of my recent trip to the Caucasus region of Eurasia, and covers the five days I spent in the country of Georgia, mainly the capital city Tbilisi. I also talk about far too much cheese and garlic, the worst beer I’ve ever had in my life, and quite a few strange statues.

Topics discussed in this episode are:

  • Audio quality of recent episodes
  • Problems when your debit card gets cancelled
  • Arrival in Tbilisi
  • First experience with Georgian food
  • Transport in Tbilisi
  • The Georgian National Museum
  • Beer and bars in Tbilisi
  • Uplistsikhe – the city built into a sandstone hill
  • Food in Tbilisi
  • The overnight train to Yerevan
  • Tbilisi street sculptures
  • The cable car and the Mother Georgia statue
  • Being enby in Georgia

You can listen via the feed above, or via Spotify, or on your podcast app of choice. Let me know if it isn’t, by the way, and I’ll see what I can do. In addition, a PDF transcript of this episode is available.

As always, if you have anything to say about the topic, or indeed about my podcasting in general, leave a comment or let me know. I now have a newsletter you can subscribe to, containing extra content, and it’s where I’ll be mentioning future podcast episodes if you want to make your own contribution.

I also now have a Patreon! If you like what you hear, and want to access exclusive content (or just to show your appreciation), then head on over to my page and donate to me!
