  • Georgia is a very interesting country. To say the least. The Mother of Georgia statue and overlook provides a unique and expansive view of the entire city of Tbilisi. It's significantly larger than I expected it to be. They also have a funicular that allows you to go even higher that the MoG statue. This is something that I highly recommend. One of my favorite activities is getting to the highest point in a city to get as accurate of a scope as possible. The story behind the statue is unique, but there are quite a few countries in eastern Europe that have similar origins.
  • Great place for a view over Tbilisi, go up the fort ruins
