From February to April 2022 alone by train and coach from Hamburg to საქართველოს
In the beginning, there was the pretty Georgian script that I began learning in October 2021. I renewed my profile on workaway.com without any concrete travel plans yet. In this network I got to know Teona, a young Georgian who was working in Italy. We met on Zoom for language exchange, and after a couple of weeks she invited me to the home of her parents and her six siblings in Tbilisi. Since her family was always quite happy to have guests, she said I could stay in her room for as long as I wanted. That sounded great!
Would I dare to go?
3000 kilometers over land as I don't fly? Alone?
Across the whole of Turkey?
With Servas and my heart pounding: yes.
Conni, the National Secretary of Servas Germany, gave me more encouragement.
On February 2, 2022 I set off, and according to the motto, “the journey is part of the trip”, I decided to enjoy the 3000 kilometer journey as much as possible.
