  • Day thirty-three - last day in Yerevan==Shopping mission== My last full day in Armenia was going to be focused on shopping. I’d seen a craft fair advertised by the Cascades so headed there after breakfast. The stalls had lovely handmade goods made by the variety Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Oct 13, 2019
  • Yerevan - Some Basics I arrived on a minibus - marshrutka - from Tbilisi, which I had pre-booked on the internet through Hayreniq. It cost US$ 22 single (£17 or €20). As far Posted by IainT in Here, and Sometimes There | Oct 4, 2019

  • Day thirty-one - Gyumri or bust==Gyumri== Basically, the day’s goal was about travelling non-stop to Gyumri. Although the guesthouse was cold and I didn’t have the best sleep, Zina produced the best breakfast I’ve had since travelling. She not only provided the usual offerings, Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 30, 2019
  • Day thirty - shivering in Dilijian==Perfect breakfast - shame about the coffee== It was a lovely start to the day despite the chill in the air. We were still quite high up at around 1,900 m above sea level. Much higher than Snowdon in Wales. Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 28, 2019
  • Day twenty-nine - back into Armenia==Monastery overload== Our itinerary for the day included visits to two monasteries - Dadivank and Gandzasar but before first we stopped at the statues that have become the symbols of the region Papik Tatik - named ‘We are our mountains’.

  • Day twenty-eight - over the border to Artsakh==Feminist Armenians== I had a good breakfast at Mirhav - everything was fresh, not stale like the food at the Grand Resort at Jermuk. I chatted with one of the Armenian guides who was looking after a Swiss couple. Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 26, 2019
  • Day twenty-seven - the road to Goris==Mermaid Falls== Breakfast at the hotel wasn’t awe-inspiring. The bread was stale and the fruit wasn’t very fresh. Despite that, I made sure I had a good feed up as food on the road is a bit haphazard. Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 26, 2019
  • Armenia - Impressions I have blogged about travel around this part of the world. I have blogged about Mt Aragats. What about my other impressions of Yerevan and Armeni Posted by IainT in Here, and Sometimes There | Sep 25, 2019
  • A Pinnacle One of the highlights of my very short visit to Armenia was climbing Mt Aragats. We got to the summit of its southern peak, which is at 3,879m/12,726 ft. I wa Posted by IainT in Here, and Sometimes There | Sep 25, 2019
  • Day twenty-six - on the road==Leaving Yerevan== Although I’d packed the previous evening, I still got up early to have a slow start before the arrival of the apartment’s owner and the driver who would be taking me around the regions. Armed with my Armenian Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 24, 2019
  • Trans Caucasus Planning my Yerevan excursion from Tbilisi was fascinating. The whole exercise of traveling between the two cities is worth a blog of its own. Posted by IainT in Here, and Sometimes There | Sep 23, 2019
  • Day twenty-five - last day in Yerevan before tour==The start of a new day== I’ve developed a pattern to my days - get up, take medication, shower, hot water with lemon followed by Armenian coffee. After a lot of faffing around, I finally leave the apartment at about Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 22, 2019
  • Day twenty-four - visiting friends==Planning my route== I’d been invited to lunch by a friend who lives north of Yerevan’s Victory Park. I was going to get a taxi but looking at the map, her apartment looked as if it was within walking distance if Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 22, 2019
  • Day twenty-three - Soviet Yerevan==Soviet Yerevan tour== The tour started at 9am from the Envoy Hostel on the corner of Pushkin and Ghazar Parpetsi Street. People are asked to arrive earlier to make payment. It’s close to my apartment so I arrived in Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 21, 2019
  • Day twenty-two - Where are the post boxes?==Envoy city tours== The previous day, I’d sent a request to Envoy Hostel & tours to book onto their Soviet Yerevan tour for Wednesday. I just thought it would be fun to do an organised trip around the city. Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 20, 2019
  • Crossing Borders Well, that was quite a day (yesterday, 19 September). I was out of my apartment at 10am to get a minibus to Yerevan, in Armenia. It is 173 mile (277 km) drive f Posted by IainT in Here, and Sometimes There | Sep 20, 2019
  • Day twenty-one - Parajanov day==Parajanov Museum== Although most museums are shut on Mondays, the Sergei Parajanov museum is an exception. It’s five minutes walk away from the apartment, overlooking the Hrazdan gorge opposite the Ararat brandy museum. [img=https://photos.trave Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 18, 2019
  • Day twenty - heading for the Cascades==The Cascade Complex== I started by exploring close to the apartment. It’s within a complex of houses bordered by Mashtots, Zakyan, Khorenatsi and Grigor Lusavorich Streets. It isn’t in the heart of the tourist area so feels more local. Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 18, 2019
  • Day nineteen - familiarising myself with Yerevan again==Finally off the train== Arriving early in the morning and having time to kill, meant dragging my heavy suitcase up Tigran Mets looking for a cafe. One thing worth knowing - the train toilets are locked well before the train Posted by Cath_Greig in Caucasus adventures | Sep 16, 2019
  • Armenia[[https://www.travellerspoint.com/photos/gallery/users/Liamps/countries/Armenia/|Armenia photos]] What immediately comes to mind when Westerners think of Armenia? “The Kardashians!” Inseparable association with an indomitable, but utterly useless, fami Posted by Liamps in Liam's Globo Trip | May 4, 2019
  • Hummer Puma Suede Klassieke vrijetijdsschoenenDe puma suede-klassieker heeft de stijl van een klassieke Hummer vintage-sneaker, gemaakt van hoogwaardig suède en in een contrasterende stijl. Natuurlijk zijn de details van deze tijd zeker de moeite waard om te spelen. De gewrichten van het teenmateriaa Posted by Schoenen2018 in Schoenen2018 | Mar 1, 2019

  • TO THE EAST. Part 3 - Armenia, On the road Бросается в глаза советская форма местных пограничников – болото рубашек и брюк, кокарда на фуражке. Недалеко ушедшее прошлое. Какой контраст с грузинской границей: расспросы в будке, куда? зачем? к кому? рассматривание виз (а ведь у меня там четыре турец Posted by Eugene.B in 40000 km there and back | Jan 28, 2019
