Absolutely, yeah.

Might go to Armenia or Azerbaijan this time.

Might even go to Turkey if that new Kars - Tbilisi - Baku rail line is open.

Yeah I did both Armenia and Baku after the last away game.

Got a taxi between 2 of us from Tbilisi to Yerevan for €40 total - had to bargain like crazy as he started at 150 but we were told by locals we could get it this cheap and just said that was all we had and if not we would take the next "marhrutka" bus.

Watched Armenia get thrashed by Denmark and spent a couple more nights there then got another €40 taxi to Tbilisi airport to fly to Baku (Armenia and Azerbaijan hate each other and the border is closed).

Baku was very cheap - the currency has depreciated by over 100% in the past decade and we got beers for 50c in some places. €40 for a 2 bedroom central apartment IIRC. Tbilisi > Yerevan > Baku was what we both thought FWIW.

I took the overnight train last time. It took 18 hours in total with a nice 3 hour power cut mid journey. The aircon also stopped at this stage. I'd recommend first class berth as its just two people, but was relatively comfortable (TV didn't work though :( ). The border crossing is an experience in itself as the guards board and root through the carriage, belongings etc.!
