Week in review: 9 - 15 July

  • Spent two days in Sofia, eating and cafe working. Met cool people around the hostel.
  • Took a night bus to Istanbul. Drama around a guy being seated next to a woman and the driver had to come rearrange the whole bus.
  • Took a day-and-night bus from Istanbul to Batumi. Drama was that it abandoned us at the border and I had to take a matrushka the rest of the way.
  • Spent two days in super weird Batumi. Discovered Georgian food \o/ Also a nice hostel.
  • Bussed from Batumi to Tbilisi. Drama was the luggage flying out on a mountain road lolol

🏷 bus week in review travel Georgia (the country) Sofia, Bulgaria

I made it to Tbilisi a little late (it should be a 6.5 hour bus from Batumi), because the bus stopped for a few silly reasons.

Little things like cows in the road.. roof is leaking rain.. side of the bus opened and suitcases flew out and had to be rescued from mountainside..

Then I accidentally didn't get out in the city center - because I didn't think the bus was stopping in the city center. And ended up at a bus station in the south I was entirely unprepared for. I found myself surrounded by taxi drivers, one of whom told me there is no metro connection here. He may have been biased, but it sure looked like a wasteland. My general desire not to get into a taxi had the effect of reducing taxi prices by 5 GEL every minute until I gave in and took a taxi to the old town. This was still not the right place, and I walked through the rain to the vegan cafe, to plan the rest of my night.

(Current status: pizza coma.)

🏷 vegan Georgia (the country) travel bus

The thing I don't like about hostels is, somebody else's alarm just went off for a full ten minutes and it was like an industrial siren sound. GOOD MORNING.

🏷 travel

The thing I like about hostels is that it's equally socially acceptable to talk to any person about anything as it is to completely ignore everyone who crosses your path.

🏷 travel life
