It’s here. This is the moment when you get less excited about your pumpkin ginger soup and the mushroom risotto. The chestnuts that you found are getting covered with dust and the neighbour’s dog took the charm away from the colourful pile of leaves.

Soon you’ll be scraping frost off your car, coming home from work without seeing the sun for the whole day… Braise yourselves. Autumn has come.

How do you cope with it? I know one way: the mountains! If not actively, than at least aurally 🙂

Let’s dive into the deep sack with my Georgian travel souvenirs.

It’s gonna be lyrically, mountainously, alternatively, autumnally.

If you had to fit all Caucasus into one song, it would have to sound like this:

By the way, am I the only one who thinks Piotrek looks Georgian? You just pack and go there girls, such guys are round every corner!

Niaz Diasamidze and his band 33a have had a hold on the Georgian music scene since the 90s and they sound brilliant accompanied by raindrops knocking on a window.

More of Georgian testosterone: Irakli Charkviani, eccentric bard, poet, composer.

The last blue song is by Georgia’s beloved jazz singer, Nino Katamadze.

And Georgian biggest pride (bigger than wine!) are their regional dances and folk music. Listen 🙂

What souvenirs do you bring back home and do they help you deal with your post-travel melancholia?
