We nearly had a head on collision in Georgia (Dash cam)

This happened a couple of months ago. This would have finished our World Tour.

The passenger in the taxi sent us the footage of the extraction!

I was surprisingly calm. If it had happened a year ago, things would have been very different. The people of Georgia really looked after us whilst we were there.

Absolutely, it wasn't until we received the recovery footage that I realised how bad it must have been for the transmission.

Lesson learnt :ok

No idea. Quite possible as it's normal to drink wine or chacha with breakfast!

Considering you don't need mot, insurance etc and most cars have been crashed, anything is possible.

Georgia is our favourite country so far. The people are unbelievably kind.
