Georgia is one of those countries we tend to overlook when we’re thinking about our next travel destination. Tucked between Turkey and Russia, between Europe and Asia, it seems to be a place we fly upon but never visit. This video might change your mind. Mountain villages, beaches by the Black Sea, temples and monasteries, traditional markets,…

The video, shot by, shows the beauty and colors of Georgia while a voice over reads Boris Pasternak’s verses about the country:

We were in Georgia. You can get this land
If hell is multiplied by paradise,
Bare indigence by tenderness, and if
A hothouse serves as pedestal for ice.

And then you’ll know what subtle doses of
Success and labor, duty, mountain air
Make the right mixture with the earth and sky
For man to be the way we found him there.

(from “The Waves”)
