Over the years our team grew so tight-knit that we can’t separate even on vacations. Last autumn 12 sibersers went on a 9 day and almost 2000 miles epic trip around Kyrgyzstan. It turned out to be such a blast, that half a year later, in the end of April 2016 team of 10 sibersers decided to spend a week exploring Georgia together.
On April 29th the team flew to Yerevan, capital of Armenia, and then drove across the border to Georgia and its capital Tbilisi – starting point of the trip.
The team couldn't miss Kakheti — wine region of the country, where they had opportunity to try young Saperavi straight from the huge barrels and chacha, which is often called grape or Georgian vodka.
Then sibersers went to explore cave monastery Vardzia, built in the twelfth century. Almost 600 rooms are carved in the mountain: chapels, storerooms, treasuries, libraries. The complex go up to 50 meters deep into the mountain and rise to a height of eight floors. Vardzia was quite a challenge for new-found claustrophobics in the team, but with supporting cheering of the rest of the sibersers everyone successfully got to the end of the trek.
After tasting famous mineral water springs in Borjomi, team drove to Batumi to enjoy views of the Black Sea and then to Upper Svaneti with its impregnable mountains and Ushguli village — the highest continuously inhabited settlement in Europe.
Georgia charmed sibersers with its beautiful landscapes, welcoming people and incredibly tasty cuisine and united the team even more. And sibersers are definitely planning to return to this stunning country and its nature that makes you drunker than young Saperavi.
