Dream it. Wish it. Do it.

Making life happen instead of waiting for life to happen is a choice.  Time does not stop for anyone, for any reason.  It is up to you and is solely your responsibility to live your life towards the fullest desire you wish to.  For us, we wanted to live the dream  of adventure, culture, tradition, and the opportunity to give our children something greater than we were currently offering them.  It has not been easy, but WOW has it been worth it!

Making wine is simple – it happens all on its on.  To our surprise, it’s almost dummy proof as long as you have the basic venues to store and let it do its thing – make wine.  We thought, “With our patio covered in Saperavi grapes, why not give winemaking a shot?”   The worse that could happen is…vinegar, right?  Have you ever thought about making your own wine?

How to rent an apartment in Tbilisi for under 1000$

Now that you’ve decided to move to Tbilisi, Georgia, let the house hunt begin.   This is what we thought.  Ha ha…  After our first searches we thought, how are we going to afford the rent in this “developing” country.  Don’t let the high prices put you off; it’s all just a crazy price posted on their house rental ad.  Everything is negotiable, and you should negotiate towards the correct price, 30-50% less.

Other countries, other customs 2/3

In Part 1, after several hours of waiting and a few exchanged SMS messages (yes, a bit vintage here in the Republic of Georgia), Papa Fish arrived home empty handed and the barrier of what I considered “crazy” news.  (insert drum roll here) The news was: On Monday (two days later) we, as in, you and I will need to empty our 20ft container and have all our personal belongings evaluated by a custom’s “expertise”.  I simply just had to laugh and thought he is joking right.  No, he wasn’t.
