When I first started pestering S about wanting to go to Georgia, I was picturing a holiday spent between two of its wildest, most picturesque regions. In my mind, we'd spend a week exploring Svaneti in the north west, horse...

Somewhat laughably, despite having CITTADINANZA: IRLANDESE (Nationality: Irish) stamped on all my Italian documents in big, capital letters, until very recently I'd never actually been to the Republic of Ireland. (In my defense, I have only technically been a citizen since...
