Kazbegi is so beautiful!
I was there in May and took the long bus ride from Tbilisi to Kazbegi and back the same day. Once we reached Stephantsminda (restaurant and town) we boarded another vehicle to see another church built by monks. It was the rockiest, scariest ride ever. Honestly, I'm still amazed by the bus ride up there - having to slow down and almost stop at the roughest sections of "highway" I've ever been on before. I do miss the Georgian lemonade though. I wish I could get that here in the US.

Caucasus
Hi Amanda, we were obviously in the region around the same time - surprising we didn't run into each other! I've enjoyed reading your blogs. You are doing it quite different that me, travelling independently by public transport whereas I was on a comfortable tour, but there again, I'm probably old enough to be your father. My style of writing blogs is a bit different from yours, but if you are interested to read them, I'm under 'Nomad-Old-Farts'. If not, I'm sure you'll recognise and enjoy some of my pics. Cheers, Neil

Crazy how good the view must have been up there Amanda. Would loved to have seen more pics of the church with the mountain smiling at it from way up there.

The real thing
Sounds great. Of course we saw the real thing with a lot less effort at Disneys Animal Kingdom!! Including gorillas, tigers, elephants, hippos, dinosaurs and even a yeti...all in one day! Only some of them seemed to be made in china.x

CCF
Myself and husband spent 2 glorious days at the wonderful Cheetah Conservation Fund. Dr.Marker who founded it is a geneticist, and she and her staff ( and volunteers) do an excellent job of caring for the orphaned and unreleasable cheetahs. We helped feed 50 cheetahs and were introduced to 3 nine month old Ambassadors who proceeded to lick us! The CCF are saving cheetahs in the wild through their research, guard dog breeding, training farmers, teaching students....and so much more. Namibia too is beautiful and so varied....I hope to return one day.

Thanks for posting this nice comment about your visit with us at the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia. We hope you will stay in touch with us via our web site or subscribing to our newsletters. cheetah.org

Wildlife sounds superb! Lot of large beasts here in Florida too. Most of them to be seen eating pizza and large cheeseburgers. Quite a sight in the swimming pool!

Hi Great to learn from you the blog is easy access. and good to read your notes. We are in a very warm place in Florida called Port St Lucie and everything about it is great for us. Just what we needed to be away from the UK. We will see Nick and Co. on Friday so I imagine the next two weeks will be hectic. I look forward to more note as you continue your journey. Keep safe Love Dad
