Updated: 17 January, 2022 seen 115

This is a round-up post from quite an easy, about a week-long, trip to the region of Kakheti in Georgia. We did this trip at the start of June 2020, traveling by car.

We booked a stay at the famous Lopota lake resort and spa, departed in the afternoon from Tbilisi, picking up our baby girl from the preschool - first stop Telavi. The next stop is Lopota lake for the next couple of days, enjoying a heated outdoor swimming pool and a very spacious family room. Chill and tranquil time here. On the third day made some driving to the town of Kvareli with a short stop at a small monastery to pick up some linden.
