Financial Friday 125

Location: Borjomi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 125….


On Friday, I traveled from თბილისი (Tbilisi) to ბორჯომი (Borjomi). Trains weren’t running at the time so I managed to hitch a ride. The person who chartered the van was nice enough to pay for transportation! I love Georgians.

On Tuesday, my hosts took me to a local monastery for sightseeing and a picnic. They paid for transportation!


Rent is $9.80 per day, and it includes a couple meals per day, as well as informal Georgian lessons! I’ve been supplementing the food they give me, but I’m sure if I asked, they’d feed me all I need. I just don’t want to be a dick, and ask more of hosts that are already so generous.


Travel insurance: $3.15 per day.

VPN: $0.26 per day.

Amazon Prime: $0.33 per day.

This blog: $0.31 per day.

Skype: $0.08 per day.

Chase Sapphire Reserve: $0.41 per day.

Passport: $0.03 per day.

Password manager: $0.16 per day.


Week 125

This is going to sound strange, but it’s kind of hard to spend money out here. The locals are so generous! See you all next week….
