No visas needed for Georgia for UK passport holders, apparently. They’re 4 hours ahead of the UK.

Stansted, change in Turkey, might be a flight option with Pegasus or Turkish. Lufthansa also has plenty of options via Frankfurt and/or Munich. Seems like arrive in the early hours of the morning. Return journey is leave early in the morning and back early afternoon.

Not a trip for the faint hearted. Likely to be very enjoyable once there. No idea on the hotels. One hotel advert had very cheap overnight rate.

Very much hope for a club trip with added room for fans.

Tbilisi is supposedly a lovely place. I've not been there but my wife lived there for a few years and wants us to move there. You must try the khachapuri.

Do you need a knife, fork, spoon or glass for that?

All of the above! It’s a bread with cheese, and an egg on top. Comes over piping hot and you stir the egg, butter, and cheese all together until it forms a cheese mixture, then rip the bread apart and dip in cheese. Fantastic stuff.

Sounds good fun.

Beer or wine with that?

As you’re a seasoned globetrotter, what’s your travel advice if we have to play in Tbilisi?

Pick Castres or Clermont instead
We're still still here, but I wish we were in an Anglo-Welsh

Many of us have been there and would do that again. The quest for new frontiers is not just a Star Trek thing

Either is good, think I did a Georgian wine last time. There was an excellent Georgian restaurant in NYC before COVID hit.

Yes. Georgian Airways used to fly to London, not sure if they still do post pandemic.

It’s a days travel either end but fascinating just the same.

Black Lion are basically a feeder club to the French D1/2 and the Georgian national team.
