We had a truly wonderful time in Georgia and we all learnt so much from Sophia about its history, archaeology and the monasteries, and from Manana about your wonderful flora.
We learned much more than we get from reading the guide books. Sophia really made each site come to life and that was great. The weather was kind, too.
The flora of Georgia is unique with so many refuges, where plants survived the ice-ages, and then, in later times, the great influx of the floras from all around, when the weather warmed, coming into the area to produce so many plants in Georgia and the Caucasus which grow nowhere else. So exciting for us.
