"Backpacking is exhausting. Every minute of your waking hours is spent on high alert. In Homeland Security speak, that would be like, orange or red.

Instead, every person and situation needs to be assessed and scrutinized." read further on the first part of a series by Dana on going to Georgia at http://www.investoralist.com/backpacking-through-turkey-georgia/
