Sneaky shot of Em in Georgian customs house waiting for our luggage to be checked.
Welcome to Georgia!
We bump into Marco & Paolo, 2 Italian bikers doing a similar route to ours but in reverse - a great chance to swap advice and info.
2 worlds collide! The brand new motorway outside Tbilisi doesn't really cater for the locals!
Em, looking glam as she shelters from the extreme heat at the side of the road!
Knackered and ready-ish for the last 40km to Tbilisi.
Trying (and failing) to smile for the camera. All I wanted was a large cold beer (left) but first got given a half litre of white wine! (right)
The Kura river that flows through the pretty city of Tbilisi.
Tbilisi, really quite nice!
Beaten up old houses around the city have a really 1920's American feel to them.
The main drag in downtown Tbilisi - flash shops, hotels and the wide road serves as a perfect racetrack for the local mafia types to thunder up and down in supercars whilst the police look on!
Scruffy run down person in scruffy run down street!
Much needed refreshment after sightseeing in the heat on a dodgy foot!
Another very cool cafe, they really do them much better in this part of the world.
We chance upon a proper 'locals' restaurant.
and get to witness the very long and poetic traditional Georgian toasts, which go on all night! Brilliant!
Having sworn I wouldn't shave until we reached Tbilisi, Em is relieved to see the lot go!
Tbilisi at dusk gets very tastefully lit up.
Another day, another beer!
Local cat that took a shine to us - clearly hadn't much in the way of TLC so couldn't get enough!!!
Our street! Scruffy on the outside but some of the houses were amazing inside!
