People sometimes write me that they are coming to Georgia alone and would like to hike. And if they could join my group or "my tour". That's understandable.
Hiking alone is not for everybody as it's more dangerous and ... well... lonely. But I don't do any tours, I am happy if I make it to Georgia for a few weeks in summer and always already have a group.
So, let's try something. If you are looking for a trekking partner, please fill in the form below and I will post yours advertisement here.
Other visitors will then be able to contact you directly through the contact form - they will not see yours e-mail address so it will be up to you if you reply or not.
At least that's my idea. Not sure if I already have critical mass of visitors to make it work, but it may be worth a try :P
