This might become an annual trip, last year we visited Bakuriani (A Trip to Bakuriani ) and this year too.
Bakuriani is one of three Georgian ski resorts (the others are Gudauri and Mestia). We left Tbilisi on Friday morning with some of Khato’s colleagues and 3 children, in a Mitsubishi Delica dependably driven by Dato. I don’t ski, but I can still enjoy the snowy landscape of Bakuriani.
We took Ana, our granddaughter; Bakuriani has a park with numerous activities, Ana liked being flung into the air on an aero-bungy maxi trampoline thingy…
Bakuriani has three ski lifts, last year we went up to the first level, this year we went to the top for the inevitable photo opportunity.
Back in Bakuriani, Ana had a lot of fun descending a small slope on a snow sled.
We had fun walking in the snow, breathing the fresh mountain air and taking lots of wintry photos.
On the return to Tbilisi on Sunday, we made a detour to visit Zedazeni Monastery, located on the Zedazeni mountain in the hills of Saguramo overlooking Tbilisi. The monastery dates back to the 6th century.
It was a pleasant break, a chance to see some snowy vistas and have some rest, away from the daily hustle and bustle.
