My dear adventurers and fashionistas, how are you today? December is a month that is otherwise known as a period when people summarize some of their impressions, look at the facts, and set some new goals for the future. Someone fulfilled their expectations, someone suddenly “missed” some opportunities, but since life is the only thing that does not have a reprise, we forgive all our failures and we move our life forward.
A few days ago I had a lot of free time, so I sat down and talked to myself, which is not a bad thing to do sometimes. I put down all the good and bad things that happened to me this year and some used and missed chances…
I can tell you that the good things and all those used opportunities won at the end, so I realized that I didn’t have lots of things to regret.
Journeys and work have fulfilled my 2019 year and I hope 2020 will be even more successful for all of us, I guess we deserve so much! I also enrolled in additional master studies couple days ago, continued to improve myself, and I hope this will lead me in the right direction because over time I have learned to trust my instinct.
In some of previous posts you have had the opportunity to get to know the capital of Georgia – Tbilisi and see one of my elegant combinations in which I have explored the beauties of the modern part of the Tbilisi. Today I’m going to show you my second, everyday winter outfit, it may be a bit sporty elegance, but I find it possible to look nice and elegant in winter conditions as well.
Our best friends during the winter are down jackets. As the technology of making garments has improved, clothing has become lighter and more compact for everyday use. Before, anyone who mentions a winter jacket, people mostly think of the massive, bulky jacket when you enter to bus or all other kind of transportation you take up space for almost three persons. Today, this fashion story is a little different, jackets have become extremely light and because of our dear ladies the aesthetics have been raised to a much higher level.
I remember my grandmother always saying that a real fur coat or a feather jacket was of good quality, if it was heavy, it meant that designer was working hard to make it good. Today, the main sign of the quality is when the jacket is light as a feather, but extremely warm and suitable for all winter conditions. So this is the case with my new friend – down jacket/parka which I got from my friends at Paul & Shark.
Paul & Shark’s new Fill Power 700 and 900 production technologies provide incredible comfort with excellent thermal properties, allowing the jacket to help you withstand the lowest temperatures. The charging strengths of 700 and 900 mark the insulating power by determining its weight to charge ratio: it is considered one of the best jackets available on the market, thanks to its high degree of thermal insulation compared to its size. Feathers create “small pockets of air” that create a thermal barrier, providing maximum protection.
I have to admit that I was encouraged by the warmth of this jacket and encouraged me to take it off for purposes of taking some photos, as Marko Tadic says, a person who latches on to his throat, puts on a beanie, scarf and gloves and asks for another extra layer… It was interesting to walk the cobblestone of the old part of Tbilisi and “dig” through Georgian history. My adventurous spirit blossomed when Bojana and I climbed by cable car to Sololaki Hill, home to the most famous symbol of the city – “Mother of Georgia”. The view of the city from this hill is extraordinary, something that would fascinate any adventurer.
For all those people planning a trip to Tbilisi, I can tell you a few things that will be enough for you to decide to spend a couple of hours in this wonderful part of town where the old traditional spirit of Tbilisi prevails. Definitely one of the most beautiful parts of the city, even if it’s a bit touristy but hey, I like that tourists add some new value and vibrancy to the city, not to mention the extra revenue. A great place to walk where you can see a lot of old buildings (it would be nice if the Georgian authorities saw that it was worth the renovation and maintenance of this part of the city), the beautiful cobblestone streets, the “city” hills with the cable car to the top.
I suppose a lot of hostels, hotels and B & Bs also contributed to the popularity of this part of town. The only thing to note is that prices (not always) can be anywhere from 25-50% higher than in other parts of the city.
My dear fashionistas, once again we have come to the end post from special series of post from my Georgian adventure. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! At the end of this post, I would like to thank my friends from Turkish Airlines and National Georgian Tourism Administration for this incredible adventure and Iota Hotel for their huge efforts to make our stay unforgettable and I felt like at home.
