In mid summer. On a rainy day. Alex and I took an early Georgian Train from Tbilisi to Batumi in western Georgia where the city laying along the Black Sea . It was my first time taking the foreign train. I was, as usual, excited and wonder how it will be. It was raining almost all the way. Rural views on the way wasn’t that brilliant but interesting enough to keep me awake until the destination.
After 5-6 hour ride, we arrived at Batumi train station and took a taxi to the hotel in southern side. We incidentally stayed in the very quiet area with a local vibe and we liked it. Batumi is some kind of during improving and growing up rapidly. Everything mixed between old and modern.
