Globe-pedalling Doctor says Georgia one of most beautiful places he visited

Stephen Fabes, a junior doctor from London, has spent six years cycling round the world. He cycled across six continents from Europe to the Americas, from Africa to Asia - all on his bike, with the exception of intercontinental flights.

The BBC’s Rayhan Demytrie met up with him in the Georgian capital Tbilisi, as he was preparing to pedal his way home. He had made a big loop of the country and pronounced it one of the most beautiful he had visited.
