Toward the end of our extensive travel adventures over Christmas break, James and Katherine and I decided that we needed to plan a weekend excursion every month for the rest of our time here in Georgia. We decided that February Fun Weekend should be a ski weekend since it's still very much winter here, and the skiing is supposed to be great.

After dinner we thought about going ice skating since the slopes were closed -- there are no lights for night-skiing. Bundled up again, we walked outside..... it had turned frigid again, with wind and blowing snow swirling everywhere. The ice rink was an outdoor rink, and we decided that it was just too blasted cold to enjoy skating. We walked into the nearest "marketi," bought a bottle of good wine, took it back the hotel, and had a lovely evening sharing some glasses of red and some good conversation.
Our February Fun Weekend was not quite what we had planned, but it was fun nonetheless. We did ski....for about an hour, and it was well-worth the $3.50 the ski rentals and lift cost us! I doubt that we will make it back here again, but we experienced Bakuriani in our own way. Sometimes adventures are all about going with the flow.
