Telavi (Kakheti province) to Natakhtari

Aug 2, 2015. Afternoon

The airfield of Telavi was absolutely empty…no planes to see. But there’s security and the airfield is secured as well. The airfield is named after Mimino, a georgian bush pilot, who played in a Russian tv series in 1977. The views drom this airfield are absolutely spectacular ( again): you see the wide plains and behind it the Caucasus mountains. Stunning !

After landing, we enjoyed the vibrant music scene at the swimming pool of Natakhtari airport…a unique combination which makes this place even more special.

With temperatures outside nearly 40 degrees, we were happy to end this flying day in a fresh and cool water swimming pool
