Visit to Georgia (2): the journey out

The journey from London to Tblisi took all day, partly because there are almost no direct flights between the two capitals and partly because there is a three hour time difference between them. So we left home at 7.30 am London time and arrived at our hotel in Tbilisi at 1 am local time.

The journey involved a cab to the underground, a tube to the railway station, a train to Gatwick airport, a first flight from London to Istanbul, a second flight from Istanbul to Tblisi, and another car to the hotel. The first flight was almost an hour and three quarters late because of winds and the second flight was – thank goodness – an hour and a half late because of the late arrival of the first flight. But we made it.
