Chris Wills and his family from London decided to discover the wild mountains of the Georgian Tusheti Region in the North East of Georgia on horseback. 

"With the Carpathians and Balkans under our belt and ever increasing confidence in our ability, I managed to con my family into the idea of riding in the Caucuses in Georgia."

Do not expect a fast read, no, expect a wild journey with Chris' blog in one of most fascinating mountain cultures in the World:
