News from nowhere

It’s been quite some time since I’ve provided an update, so here’s what’s been going on: Life is fantastic. The sun is out almost every day here, something that, a month ago, was a rare occurrence even once in a week. During the week I’ve been spending a lot of time after school playing sports…

Words cannot describe

So, my apologies that I have not posted for some time. It’s been an incredible few weeks, and I will attempt to explain what has been going on. This pastweek was my Georgian version of Spring Break, and I did some traveling to pass the time. This was the right choice. We started in Batumi…

Moving locations/More weekend festivities/Snow

Due to some unfortunate circumstances (I will not post these here), I left my previous home in Adjaristskali, and am now in a mountain village an hour or so east, up a brutally unkempt mountain road. My host family is wonderful. I now have a host mother and father, and two younger brothers. I promise…

Getting lost and getting home

This has to be a brief post, as I need to go back to school for a meeting, but hopefully it will largely appeal to the Colorado crowd out there, and my father. First: I think I might have found the Adjaran/Georgian Mt. Sanitas! Imagine my excitement when after I tell my host mother I’m…

By the sea

First of all, I cannot add any pictures. My apologies to any of you that wanted to see where I am; I will try to get this problem fixed very quickly. I’ve been here by the sea for almost a week now. The trip here was beautiful. Georgia is full of snow and mountains. I’m…

A New Home in Georgia

You might be wondering why there’s a picture of water in the beginning. Turns out water in Georgian is წყალი, which in English would be pronounced tzqkhali. So…yeah, not much else to say about that. The hotel we have been staying in allows for a sequestered experience here in Tbilisi, and I believe all of…

Departure/Chicago/Warsaw

Hello everybody! This is my first post of the year, and actually my first blog post ever. So, I will try to make it count. Yesterday (or what feels like a few days or weeks ago) I left for Chicago from DIA en route to Warsaw, Poland, and eventually to Tbilisi, Georgia. I’m writing this…
