Lately we’ve come to think of fizzytom as the voice of Europe; in May alone, she’s shared reviews from Slovenia, Spain, Norway, Germany, Georgia, England, and Turkey. And with judgments like “The Place to Be(er)” (a Leeds bar) and “Would Mr. Darcy take his Lizzy there?” (an Istanbul hotel), an effervescent voice she is.
One of our recent favorite reviews comes from Georgia’s capital, where fizzytom visits what she’s christened Tbilisi’s Yummy Mummy (and what the rest of the country calls Kartlis Deda). This symbolic statue holds a sword in her right hand and a cup of wine in her left, of which our traveler says, “I found this a perfect summation of the Georgia I experienced—'You’re very welcome but do behave yourself.'"
She goes on to say, “Depending on the weather, Mother Georgia can gleam like a piece of polished silver or loom like a leaden shadow over the city. She’s not elegant; she’s sturdy and means business.” It’s spot-on descriptions like these that make us want to follow in fizzytom's footsteps—though if we want to check off all of her recommendations, it’s going to take quite a while.
