Captivating Georgia | Part 2 - Doramode!


Hello Folks, Welcome to another travel blog. And for today's content, I am writing about my recent trip to Georgia. This is my 2nd-day trip and one of the highlights of the tour.

This is Jvari Monastery at Mtskheta Eastern Georgia

Travel Time...

We left our hotel around 1:30 in the afternoon.  We have a personal tour guide and a driver with a coach service. And it took us approximately 20 to 30 mins drive to reach the site all the way from Tbilisi.


Jvari Monastery is a Georgian Orthodox Monastery that existed for the last 6th century. And it is situated at a rocky mountain top of a hill overlooking the town of Mtskheta.

 It is currently a Unesco World Heritage Site that survived to the present day that's almost unchanged.

Breathtaking View...

The breathtaking view within the monastery is surreal. If you're into nature thing, You would definitely love the scene. We arrived at the spot around 2PM, and the weather was bit gloomy and cold. and the parking lot was full of coasters, some of them are locals and other tourist wanting to check the monastery. 

Some of the pictures I took below:

The good thing about us, as we're able to help by our local tour guide and made it easy to reach the top.

The local tour guide explained to us about the architecture of the monastery. The monastery was strengthened by a "controforse" wall. So that it would look like its growing from the mountain. Its an example of harmonic relation of architecture with nature. 

Bas-Relief of the Monastery...

Relief is a term for a sculptural technique where the sculpted elements attached to a solid background of the same material. And the monastery has a lot of it. Ranging from a Georgian Nobleman of Iberia to the Ascension of the Cross. I took a picture of it. See above for your reference.

Inside of Jvari Monastery...

I still have plenty of time to roam around the area and I went inside the monastery. The fact that this is 6th Century old structure, yet Georgian is still able to remain whatever needed to preserved inside. Using the night mode on the DSLR, I was able to capture some shots inside.

Here are some pictures:

The most important part of a Christian: I light up a candle and prayed.

It took Us around an hour to finish checking what's in the area. Afterward, the local tour guide transferred us to another Orthodox Church. But I'm going to share that content on my next blog :)

I hope you guys enjoy reading this content. And Looking forward to seeing you on my next  Part 3 of my Tour to Georgia :)

As always, Stay Safe :)

The #NewNormal...

Hello Everyone! Welcome back to my blog. It's been a while since I did not write any content.  As most of my content on the website focused on product reviews and travel reviews, however, the pandemic strikes that I decided to postpone it for some time and switch to an alternative.

Adding some unforeseen factors like having a furlough for 2 months and returning back at work with a hefty workload. But that doesn't stop me from creating great content for everyone. Prioritizing "vlogging" doesn't mean leaving my website. It's just things that happened so quickly. 

Lately, I focused myself on vlogging, though I've been creating some video contents before, I prefer to write (I'm an introvert, but with a little practice and a sprinkle of confidence, I was able to surpass it and I am comfortable now talking in front of the camera) 

A the time goes by, I decided to start creating a daily vlog on my youtube channel and Facebook page.  and finally, all my hard work was totally paid off. I think this year, I mostly focused on vlogs as I'm unable to make more content on my website. But, still, I have a third party ad player that integrates with my website and I always upload all of the contents that I have. Making sure that all of my videos have an exposure of 360 degrees.

Creating a vlog during this pandemic is a no easy peasy task. I need to be more creative and make a content where viewers can watch it all over again. So since I cannot leave the country or go to other emirates due to COVID Restrictions. What I did was to create an Episodic Content of my Daily Vlog in Abu Dhabi. 

Basically, All of those interesting things and those things that I normally do during my rest day from work or at my workplace. I compiled this daily vlogs into an episodic content and upload it to Facebook. 

Facebook offers episodic content, unlike Youtube where you have to create a playlist first and upload all the contents. 

Anyways, I upload all those contents from Facebook to Youtube and to my website.

So far, I was able to achieve 10,380 followers from my Facebook page and I was able to monetize it.

on the other side, My Youtube channel is still under review, and my watch hours are still ongoing to reach the 4000 watch hours.

Having 10k followers on Facebook is a significant milestone from my end. I couldn't ask for more. I am so happy that my page was now able to earn money. Having the passion to write won't stop me from doing it.

Creating a content thru writing and vlogging is a talent. And I am so grateful to have those both.

Ceddy's Random Milestone...

It's Been A While!

 Hello Everyone! It's been a long time that I missed to write content.

I was so busy at work and doesn't have time to make new content and because of Covid-19. All my travel plans were moved to 2021 (I should have fresh content for the past 2 months but since unforeseen circumstances happened.)

Back On Track!

And Since I'm back on track on writing content.  I have something to share with you-  a personal review of an online marketplace. This is FIVERR. 

I was searching for some specific "Gig" for my website. I am searching for someone who can fix some errors on my website and to optimize it more. So I hire a professional to fix that issue. 

Why I hired a Professional SEO Consultant?

I noticed that due to COVID 19, 50% of my traffic footfall decreased sporadically for 4 months and I was worried as this is greatly affecting my ad revenue performance. So to prevent this from getting worst, I hired someone who can fix this issue as I don't have time and I am busy at work

Does Fiverr worth it?

With the help of Fiverr, I was able to find the right person to fix the issues on my website. A quick chat via Fiverr App, settle the payments, Fix the issue, and deliver it. And voila. After 5 days of promised delivery, the guy who's happened to be a social media manager as well from Pakistan was able to fix and delivered its service on time.  And if you wish to hire other professionals, there's plenty of services that Fiverr offers.

The screenshot below via Fiverr App:

What Are The Payment Option?

All I did was to pay via Apple Pay on my phone (Since Fiverr can support Apple Pay without entering your card details manually)  If you want to learn more about Apple Pay, You can check my Apple Pay Review HERE.

Fiverr accepts the following mode of payment:

  • Apple Pay
  • Thru Debit or Credit Card
  • Paypal

What I did from my end was just to submit all the requirements that he needs and some credentials.

And I was able to get a 10% discount since it's my first time to order a service from Fiverr. After providing the valid promo code, 

You have to apply the promo code provided by Fiverr to get a discount before checking out

I did a check out via Apple Pay and Voila. The person who I hired can start his job right away.

Dashboard & Status Of The Gig

You can always monitor the progress of the gig by utilizing the Fiverr App. I have taken a screenshot below:

All you have to do is go to Manage Orders

And the expected delivery will appear like this below:

Trust Is Always Important

I know that some of you would not trust People by giving your credentials, but You should. Luckily, The guy from Pakistan did his job and didn't share my sensitive information from anyone and I am highly satisfied. I am going to order a gig from him again.


Of course, before trying the service offer from Fiverr, I read some reviews first and the feedback from that person. Luckily, Plenty of people did a 5 Star rating.
