- Friendly Georgia. Part 2 – Svanetian CaucasusГрузия – горная страна. Побывал в пяти городах и из каждого из них были видны горы, то на северном горизонте, то прямо за городскими окраинами.

- Friendly Georgia. Part 1 – City life, capital & provinceСвежая порция фото-впечатлений из нескольких городов Грузии.
Кутаиси – столица края Имеретия. Сюда Wizzair отправляет регулярные рейсы из Европы, так что довольно много туристов начинают свой грузинский маршрут именно с этого города.

- Cultural ShockI’ll admit I’m kind of arrogant about this whole travelling business. But it’s hard not to get that smug feeling about yourself and your travels when you’re away for a significant period of time, travel over land and go off Posted by askgudmundsen in Asia Less Travelled | Jul 18, 2013
- (S)wine CountryThe piggies met a nice American girl, Billie Jean (ha), who is living and working in Tbilisi to study women's and gender studies. Here's a link to her fundraising page if you want to read more (not trying to pressure Posted by gabell in ThreeLittlePiggies | Jul 23, 2013

- Blast from the Past: Piggie style in UshguliThe Piggies met a nice American father-daughter duo from PA and they decided to split a van with them and James to Ushguli.

- Some impressions of TbilisiPigs haven't been very good at taking photos. Maybe they just feel weird taking selflies in the street while Georgian beggars are staring at them. Or having locals wonder why they are posing in front of buildings. Here are some Posted by gabell in ThreeLittlePiggies | Jul 8, 2013
- The National Sport is Cow DodgingMy impressions of Georgia may cause quite a stir. There is a State in the USA called Georgia.
