In Topic: Been To Tbilisi Before? What Can You Tell Us?

is it safe enough to use a local banks' ATM? or best to find e.g. a Western Union and get your cash from there?

Got to our hotel middle of the night last time,found a ATM round the corner and just used that.

Only kidding about the previous photo. It was taken in Georgia but it wasnt my taxi.

I was there in 2007 and met some lovely people. Went back to stay with them a couple of years ago and they drove me the length and breadth of the country. They showed me how near the Russian tanks had got to Tbilisi and it was very close. Blimey! 

 

There is a cable car up the hills t the back of Tblisi which (I dont tink) was there the lat time

Because I met so many lovely people over there and was taken under their wing, I might be biased but Georgia is my favourite trip.

Cable car was just down the road from the stadium pick up point in full working order,.Had a shot on it to see what was at the other end.

The 1915 Aer Lingus flight from Dublin that I was on was oversubscribed and were looking for two volunteers to be put at an airport hotel, dinner, bed and breakfast and 250 euros.

Aer Lingus was looking for a volunteer to drop out of the Aberdeen flight yesterday afternoon and fly to Glasgow instead with transport up to Aberdeen provided ,also 250 euros

There are apparently 250,000 poles living in Ireland and that was the reason so many got tickets.
surely there are fewer than that in Scotland?
Also, i think the irish were slow to back their country, this has happened again to a certain extent- the FAI keep having pre sales because the uptake hasnt been strong enough to sell out the stadium for our match.i think it points to 2 factors, the Aviva is too big for football (not rugby though). And the fans are staying away more than previously (pricing issues maybe?).
Scotland has a larger traditional fan base which should help keep the poles in our end to a minimum.

Not all poles live in Scotland though.Just over the border there is thousands who would like to go to this game.
