It feels like I only just blogged about New York, and yet here I found myself once again. This time around my friends were on holiday so I decided to take it easy on this layover and just do whatever I felt up to after the 14 hour flight!
Last time I walked over 15km around the city, so I gave my feet a bit more of a break! Our crew hotel is just around the corner from Times Square, so after a good freshen up one of the other girls from first class and I headed out to get a bit of sun, a drink and a bite to eat.
Having visited Rome plenty of times in the past, I decided not to go sightseeing this time, instead making my day all about the delicious Italian food! Unsurprisingly though I couldn’t help but see a few of the beautiful buildings and monuments Rome has to offer whilst on my walk through the city.
First up however was breakfast in the hotel to fuel up for a day of strolling through the cobbled streets in 36 degree heat. You can be sure I ate some of those pastries – the best one is the croissant filled with “crema”, a delicious creamy custard.
After our first day exploring Tbilisi, Emma and I were ready to see a bit more of Georgia! We booked onto a tour which would take us to see the Kazbegi mountains, the Ananuri Fortress, Zhinvali Dam and Reservoir, and Gudauri to see the Russia-Georgia friendship monument high up in the mountains.
After fuelling up with an incredible breakfast at our hotel, we walked into the old town to our meeting point.
Although we booked onto a group tour, it was only the two of us and a Ukrainian couple, along with our guide Misha.
Last month I decided to do something a bit spontaneous – after realising my friend Emma and I had 3 days off at the same time, we booked a trip to Tbilisi, Georgia!
I landed from a flight in the evening and Emma came over so we could plan the trip somewhat – we booked standby flights with FlyDubai for the next morning, a hotel in Tiblisi, and left the rest to be decided when we got there!
