Hotel Dalis Mta

06/14/2021 - 02:58 14 views
Hotel Dalis Mta is located some 35 kilometers from the Dedoplitskaro town, right next to the Dalis Mta water reservoir in the Chachuna managed area.

We had a chance to stay here overnight at the start of June 2020, as the trip was organized by a German friend, he was the one who found and booked this place. The hotel charged GEL 50 per person, plus an additional GEL 30 dinner and an additional GEL 30 breakfast. If you are into grilling I guess it shouldn't be a problem to prepare a grill (as long as you have firewood and meat with you)

We booked this place in the frames of a weekend trip to Chachuna managed area, visiting mud volcanoes, eagle canyon and Big Shirtaki airfield

Vashlovani Trip

06/11/2021 - 02:03 11 views
Epic Georgia! Epic Vashlovani!

Another awesome weekend recorded. Crossing desert sand, meeting more than 30 turtles, reaching man-built Chachuna reservoir, stepping in volcano mud puddles.

With an overnight stay in a camp base powered by solar power. Reaching Eagle canyon near Dedoplitskaro and having fun at abandoned Russian airfields in the middle of nowhere.

Many thanks to Ralph Schmidt for making this trip happen.

30 day challenge to publish 30 YouTube videos and double subscriber count

06/10/2021 - 03:40 21 views
At the end of April 2021 (April 27) I started another interesting challenge in which was looking to publish at least one YouTube video a day for 30 days and double up my YouTube subscriber count!

In this article, I'm going to share details of how it all went.

Despite I have a semi-active YouTube page since 2014, and I've published there more than 20 videos over the years, the total subscriber count at the start of this experiment was very humble - 14. I've never been active or trying to market my YouTube channel, but now I decided to see - could I grow my channel by posting brief videos about stock investing, options trading, and so on.

In the past, several blog readers and friends have asked/suggested I start my YouTube channel about stock and crypto investing. 

Latest stock buy 6 shares of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) at $133.33 per share

06/10/2021 - 02:47 12 views
On April 30, 2021, I bought additional 6 shares of Apple stock (NASDAQ: AAPL) paying $133.33 per share. 

With its quarterly dividend of 0.22 cents per share, this latest buy has a dividend yield of 0.66% and will pay us an additional $1.32 every quarter (before tax).  Not the biggest income, but when buying Apple stock I'm are not looking at a dividend alone. instead, I'm looking at a potential value growth and options income from selling covered calls.

At the start of January, I got an inheritance of EUR 6,061 - I decided to put this money at work in the stock market - here is a quick recap for April.

Turn $200/mo into $150,000 in Just 10 years

06/09/2021 - 03:49 27 views
Last weekend we had a very nice and remote trip to the Vashlovani protected areas here in Georgia, we had a chance to sleep in a very remote place that was powered by solar energy and there was no internet connection.

The last time I was in a place without an internet connection was some 7 years ago, and I already started to believe there are not any more such places. There are.

Latest stock buy 14 shares of Realty Income Corp (NYSE:O) at $59.80 per share

06/09/2021 - 02:17 12 views
On January 29, 2021, we bought additional 14 shares of Realty Income Corp. (NYSE:O ) paying $59.80 per share. 

With its monthly dividend of 0.23 cents per share, this latest buy has a dividend yield of 4.61% and will pay us an additional $3.22 every month (before tax).  Now, that's awesome!

To finance this purchase we spent one-fourth of our options income in the month of January, see January 2021 Options Income Report - $3,284.00

We now hold in total 64 shares of O, In total, they contribute about $152.32 (after tax) yearly to our dividend income portfolio.

Using dollar-cost averaging our average cost per one O share is $60.61

Also, O is one of the largest holdings now in our portfolio, taking 10.81% of it

Hilton Batumi Hotel Review

06/08/2021 - 03:22 21 views
Located in the centre of Batumi, just 200 m from the Black Sea coast, Hilton Batumi is a pet-friendly 5-star hotel offering a modern interior design and high-quality facilities. Dolphinarium is 300 m from the hotel and Europe Square is 900 m away.

We booked this 5-star Hilton Batumi hotel for a 3-night stay at the end of May 2021 and paid about GEL 2400 / USD 772.

Price included a junior suite executive room with excellent views from the 19th floor, access to the executive lounge for some light snacks, a salty swimming pool, gym, and some more perks (breakfast), as we arrived in Batumi by plane, we didn't have to concern about parking.

Latest Stock Buy 12 shares of LI (NASDAQ:LI) $30.16 per share

06/08/2021 - 02:00 12 views
On February 2, 2021, I bought additional 12 shares of LI (NASDAQ:LI) for our daughter's stock portfolio, paying $30.16 per share. Funds for this purchase were taken from my dad's inheritance fund.

Li Auto Inc., also known as Li Xiang, is a Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer headquartered in Beijing, with manufacturing facilities in Changzhou

Unlike most of my other buys - LI is not a dividend stock. When buying this stock I'm looking at potential value growth.

We are now holding 20 shares with LI

Our average buy price: $31.94

I plan to increase the total share count to 100 in a reasonable time frame (say the end of 2021) and once we have 100 shares start selling covered calls on it to generate extra income.

Just for the illustration:

Batumi and Green Cape

06/04/2021 - 04:08 18 views
Another awesome weekend has been in our tapes - this time we booked a Tbilisi - Batumi flight by Vanilla Sky (it's super cheap and takes only 50 minutes to get there), a 5-star Hilton Hotel with executive views + gym and saltwater pool access.

Visited Green Cape + Botanical garden. Pink ice cream is still our favorite. Made a ton of hyper lapses and experimented with keyframing (fast forward in Adobe Premiere).

Enjoy and thumbs up!
