Many people are familiar with the story of Jason and the Argonauts. Yet, how many know Colchis, Jason's destination in his quest for the Golden Fleece, is actually situated in present-day Georgia, a country steeped in legend and myth, ruggedly beautiful, rarely visited by outsiders, and one of the unique destinations offered on our voyage Circumnavigation of the Black Sea?

As an expedition leader for Zegrahm, I had the good luck to be called upon to lead our own Black Sea odyssey,...
