Last chance workout on the trails around Turtle Lake before Tbilisi Marathon


After our successful start at the Tbilisi Adventure run back in April I gathered everyone from the Caucasus Translations office for the Tbilisi Marathon Run in October (2023). This time we applied for a 10K distance. To test my limits I started to train for the 10K run at the gym on a treadmill. Surprisingly my results were quite good, and maybe that's why Olga (Latvian explat), after seeing some of my Facebook posts invited me to join her for a trail run. I was intrigued enough and agreed.…

Turtle Lake from a Drone flight


Turtle lake is a direct English translation of Kus Tba (Georgian: კუს ტბა), a small lake at the outskirts of Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, so named due to the perceived abundance of turtles living in these places. Turtle lake is a very popular recreational area both for locals and foreigners, so it's just that time I'm submitting it as another tourist attraction in Tbilisi. We have been heading to the Turtle Lake in all seasons, I have made here both HDR's and panoramic photos, but a drone…

Remote and Abandoned Hipster Party Place with Great views of Tbilisi (Hiking near Turtle Lake)

Restaurant Kus Tba (Turtle Lake) in Tbilisi


Restaurant Kus Tba is located next to the popular recreational area Turtle lake in Tbilisi, here serves a traditional Georgian cuisine in a touristic sauce.  I have been to this place several times, I cannot tell neither good, neither bad - I'm more neutral regarding this place, it definitely is not the cheapest, but also not the most expensive, from what I have met in Tbilisi. See Tbilisi restaurant reviews. I have my favorite Turtle lake restaurant, maybe that's way I cannot be objective…
