  2. I would be over the moon if I were able to visit Georgia!! I have always wanted to – I just love traveling and exploring new places to expand my horizons! I really miss travel too because I haven’t really traveled in more than a year due to being pregnant and now having a 6month old.

  4. I’ve been there several times. It is a beautiful city, filled with lovely and welcoming people. And the food is unparallel.
