Dreaming is all we got!

    1. Hahaa…true dreaming is what we can do about our favorite travel destinations. Regarding numbers in Georgia, I didn’t do any fact checking for this guest post. But as Georgia, Croatia…I mean east Europe is my dream destination, I didn’t think twice to publish the article. And Yes, I’d also be happy to travel to any scenic place at the moment and spend a few days in the lap of nature. Much needed! šŸ˜€
