While I'm not in Tbilisi myself, my wife and children are at present in Georgia, having been in Tbilisi during the flood and the following week, although they now went to the summer house in the mountains. I have been speaking with them almost daily - so this is almost a first person account. Severe flooding did occur a couple of weeks ago in Tbilisi, ...

The Garmen GPS maps do not show detail in the regions such as Mtskheta where Kazbegi is located. I used and still use the free app maps.me in Mtskheta, Kakheti, Shida Kartli, Samtskhe-Javakheti, Imereti, Guria, and Adjara. To get this, you have to first download the app to your iPhone, then the Georgia specific map. It works offline, shows your location, ...
