Skiing in Gudauri and Mestia was great. The snow is great, and the vast landscape is unique. We will be back.

We had a great group. I still have contact with all six. We have already agreed that we will come back next year. Then it will be a wine tour through Kakheti.

I will never forget our trip through the mountains of Tusheti. The landscape was unique, though the absolute highlights were the warm encounters with the locals.
