David Martin

My name is David Martin.  I lived and worked in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia from December, 1997 through July, 1999.

I had a wonderful time exploring the Georgia Republic and some nearby countries.   It is a beautiful country with a thousand year history.   And the Georgians are wonderful hosts.

These pages share some of my adventures.   They are much more of a diary than a travel guide, but I would be happy to answer any questions from anyone traveling to Georgia.
