    Hi,

    This was our third attempt to reach Omalo in Tusheti, Georgia.
    For the first time - road was closed due to flood.
    For the second - they advised us not to go, because of heavy rain for the next couple of days.
    but we have tried for the 3rd time and as we arrived to beginning of the road, there was a sign, that the road is closed due to heavy snow fall. But it was June already, actually, the first day of UEFA World Cup, so we decided to give it a try. We were riding bikes rented in Tbilisi - three F650GS (great bikes!). This time weather was fantastic and that was one of the best rides I ever had.
    Here's a little video:

    and a few pictures:
