Photo of the Day Saturday 2 June
One of the joys of the internet is finding cheap last minute air tickets to somewhere unusual. It is exciting to not know where you will be off to until a short time before departure. Nowadays, with the internet, then it is no problem. I have even been onboard an aircraft reading a guidebook after booking an ultra last minute ticket. And now with more airlines offering wifi inflight, then downloading a travelguide as you fly is getting easier. It does not take long to pack a bag, and if you travel often, like I do, then packing is very easy. And it was always good to get away from the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell. And I also felt happy to get away from the managers at the same hotel.
Today’s photo is to one of these unusual, unplanned destinations. Bit off the usual tourist route, but good to visit somewhere less visited, and also to travel there out of season. The photo comes from the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, recently in the news because of flooding. Taken in December last year, winter sunshine lights up part of the old town above the river.
