And the First Stop is.......

Tbilisi, Georgia (country not the state).

It is such a relief that after months and months of being asked where we are moving to (and saying I don't know) or getting the eyebrow raise when I said I moving overseas and don't know where.....yeah.

To help you orient yourself, I found this map online:

Now its time to plan......figure out kids clothes (how quickly will they grow and how much can I find on clearance based on the climate, which looks surprisingly similar to Charleston....except there are mountains full of snow close by to go play in during the winter!), food and toiletries we can't live without and don't want to pay an arm and a leg for (we are actually allotted 2500 lbs of said food and toiletries...called consumables, because they are so hard to find/expensive!).

  1. I replied to your comment on my blog but figured I'd check out yours. No need to sweat what to send to Tbilisi - we really can get just about anything here, including clothes from the Gap at the mall by the Embassy (and don't forget mail order!). We shipped things like almond milk, sushi rice and seaweed, our favorite sauces from Trader Joe's and sensitive skin detergent and toiletries - super-speciality items. We live on the economy for just about everything else. Look forward to meeting you when you arrive!

    1. Almond milks is one thing I definitely enjoy. Are basics like sugar and flour available? I typically go w/unbleached organic flour but if it is made somewhat locally they might not use as many pesticides as in the US?
