GEORGIA TRAVEL GUIDE
I've traveled to almost 70 countries all around the world, and Georgia remains my favorite of them all.
First, culture. Georgia is a tapestry woven from thousands of threads from East, West, and Middle East.
Second, food and wine. Simply having a meal in Georgia is a journey. Oh, and wine was invented here.
Third, the stunning Caucasus mountains. Pure bliss for nature lovers.
I could go on, but instead let's get planning your trip to Georgia?
NEED TO KNOW
Language: Georgian. Russian widely spoken among older generation. English prevalence is growing quickly, especially in Tbilisi and with the younger crowd.

Credit Cards & ATMs: Major establishments take debit/credit cards, but smaller-scale accommodations, tourist sites and restaurants may only take cash. ATMs widely available.
Plugs: Type C or F, 220V / 50Hz. Bring this universal adapter.
Safety: Georgia is generally a very safe place to visit, despite the very brief conflict in 2008 between Russia and Georgia. But it is still a good idea to purchase travel insurance for Georgia, and check the latest US State Department travel advisories for Georgia.
