Full of flavor and design, Armenia is a country nestled in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia. It is beautiful and boasts a rich history and a vibrant cultural heritage. I was forutnate enough to spend some time in Yerevan, one of the world's oldest continuously inhabited cities, with a history dating back to 782 BC.
One of Armenia's most prominent features is its stunning landscapes, which range from mountainous terrain to lush valleys. Mount Ararat, an iconic symbol of the nation, holds cultural significance as the supposed resting place of Noah's Ark, as mentioned in the Bible.
Having faced numerous challenges throughout its history, Armenia has a resilient spirit and Armenians have preserved their unique identity and traditions.
The Armenian people have a rich cultural heritage, with a language that has its own distinctive alphabet, one of the oldest in the world. Their contributions to literature, art, and music reflect a deep connection to their history and a strong sense of national pride.More importantly, spending time with my team was the highlight of the journey. Yervand and Lilit headed the adventures, and the time spent with them is unforgettable. Daniel, Grisha, Artyom, Narek & Narek, Nelli, Gayane, Armen & Armen, Vahan, Artak, Hovhannes - Thank you for spending so much time showing us around.
And should we talk about the food for a moment? Hospitality is a cornerstone of Armenian culture, with guests often being treated to an abundance of food and warm welcomes. There was no shortage of hospitality and food. Both were delightful. Dolma, lavash, and the famous barbecue known as khorovats.
Armenia leaves a lasting impression on those who explore its history, culture, and natural beauty. It's a country that invites you to delve into its past, savor its present, and appreciate the indomitable spirit of its people.
This collection flows from the heart and dedicated our the unforgettable time spent in Armenia. It was a special trip, and it is now in my heart forever.
