All my earlier advice was bollocks - turned out, the handiest thing to do was pile into taxis. It cost us 20 lari each to get up there, and then we got a minibus back for a tenner each.

The train was sold out!

That bloody train station and the town itself were absolute kips - enjoyable excursion though

Almost. There was one spot free.
Bizarre that health and safety comes into play for not overcrowding trains yet when it comes to footpaths/roads anything goes!

And a 3 foot wide bottomless pit of a man hole in the middle of the platform

It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.

great trip. we left betsys with the group but got lost when we stopped for an espresso. heading to the market to get a matrushka and can only describe the place as total chaos  LOL

We managed to get a matrushka after about 20 minutes for 5 Lari. Gori itself was ok, the museum was very interesting (pinch of salt needed) and then we got a matrushka back for 3 Lari. All in all a return trip for €3.50  Cool

Saturday. Too many only arriving Friday night. 11am meetup in Betsy's reception (although there are suggestions of a later departure).

 
Could we make it midday as I know of a few of the lads who are interested in going may want to venture out for a quiet shandy on the Friday night.


I've seen it all now. The fella that wont turn up either way because of his quiet shandies making all the calls

 
Wanna have a little wager on this?


Whats the local currency? I'll stake you a 10er worth of it

 
A few Lari it is so - although this proposed 11am start may be the ruination of me LOL


I thought about it in detail. If you dont make,<span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 1.4;"> I will win me money. If you make it, you wont be in any state for the rest of the trip to remember I owe you moneyLOL </span>
<span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 1.4;">
</span>
<span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 1.4;">Its a win win</span>


You can pay me in Germany

The 11am start was nearly the ruination of *me* - I think I was the last one who showed up, at about half past. Whoops.
