Welcome to another hiking / trekking post in Tbilisi. 

This time in a company of three we made a route from Turtle Lake - Round Garden (Eristavi street). 

As warm weather is more approaching, I'm more into outdoor activities. So - last week we took our bikes and headed to Lisi lake.

Speaking of hiking near Turtle lake - this was already third time this year (first two were made on January) - so it actually doesn't matter what are the weather conditions, right?

This time I did record this route using MapMyRide app and made plenty of photos (Lately I'm really into macros)

After this hike we caught a taxi and went straight to Restaurant Shengen in Old Town. Why Restaurant Shengen? That day Georgian Rugby team was playing against Russia, and there at Shengen restaurant they have a Huge TV.
