Georgia in Summer


Georgia, the balcony of Europe as they say, kept me speechless in awe most of our 10-day stay. The stunning countryside is everything I reckoned of a magical nature and I get the reason why they call it the balcony of Europe, like literally.
 
Half of the almost-no-hunkering-trip included visits to the region of Mestia where we had a trek to the beautiful mountain of Ushba in Upper Svaneti and the village of Ushguli down to Kutaisi.
 


 
 
The other half was spent in Tbilisi and Kazbegi. Driving to the town of Kazbegi in the Caucasus Mountains was incredibly breathtaking that we never had second thoughts of hiking to the foot of Mt. Kazbek as we pulled into the town that brought us ultimate adventure the following day.
For proof, see the photos below:





 
For the record, btw, I had the happiest of birthdays in Tbilisi when AC pulled off a really nice birthday surprise for me. From a blow-your-candle came another sweet surprise when he took out a beautiful, never did I know, engagement ring from inside a flower disguised as a birthday cake topper. It was very funny I was insanely busy taking photos and videos wanting to capture the beautiful romance out of my birthday surprise that only when I have taken everything did I ask AC what the ring was all about. He then smiled and answered "That's an engagement ring" and my answers were like "Oh...How nice...Thank you, Thank you!".
 
I wasn't just completely taken off-guard but I was also totally ignorant that I honestly didn't even recognize it was one. Everyone else in the hotel restaurant were smiling at us and AC was like tongue-tied that he'd not actually popped out the question but only added to say "Ayaw mo ata eh...mahal pa naman yan. Re-imburse mo nlng yan!". I swear I was feeling ecstatic and could have shouted the big time YES but I was only grinning like "Hindi ah. Gusto ko!".
I thought, at the back of my mind, "YAY...Finally!".
 
We fight a lot but how couldn't the fights be concealed when he gave me that moment I have, undeniably, been waiting for all my life? Isn't he the sweetest?
 
Now, we have Georgia captured to remember all our lives!
