Where is Georgia ?

Georgia is not far from central Europe, it's a "middle range" destination.

By plane it takes 4/5 hours, if you prefer the "overland solution" a bit mor complicated.
From London to Batumi is about 5.100 chilometers.

How to get there ?
You can get there, either travel overland by bus or car from Turkey, entering via Sarp on the Black Sea coast but the main way is flying directly to Tbilisi.
