That is right folks! I’ll land in Armenia in less than two weeks.
Only two weeks & I’ll have the majestic mount Ararad right next to me, for almost two weeks!
I got almost everything prepared for my second trip to Armenia. I will share some info here.
Although it will make my flight longer with a transit time of couple of hours in Dubai, but with almost half the price of the ticket from Armavia, it was an easy decision to make.
Actually the priced peaked up, most probably because of the rush of “Eid”; but still it stays cheaper than the flight from Beirut via Armavia.
Everyone’s positive feedback about these guys, made things pretty easy & the top of the icing was the awesome help I got from a friend, Vera; who made the process fast and enjoyable. For that I can’t thank you enough dear
Although I don’t like to tour with a tour, the group number we’re going is ‘forcing’ it this time.
HyurService.com again, as with the accommodation, I didn’t even think to check others. Hope all the reviews stay to par & won’t let me down.
I’ll publish my day-by-day plan pretty soon, but one thing for sure, I’m going to Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) too!!
I’ll also fly on “Wings of Datev”, the longest ropeway on Earth! a 5.7-kilometer breathtaking “flight” to reach the monastery of Datev.
Will also post recommendations, reviews, tips, watch-outs… so stay tuned.
PS: If you are wondering why I do have some of the names, with similar naming, in ()s; that’s because they are spelled so in Eastern Armenian.
This was shot last Sunday, from the top of Our Lady of Lebanon – handheld.

After 8 years, I’m going back “home”.
It will be in early Sept, I’ll try to blog everything here, from reservations, tours, plans, experience… and surely Photos!
You can always check the photos (with 3MP camera, that I got in Armenia) on my other site; MayrHayasdan.com
This one was shot during the protest on April 24, 2012, in front of the Turkish embassy, Rabyeh, Lebanon. At 100% crop I can clearly see myself in his/her eye!
PS: If you know this little fellow, please do let me know. I would love to send a printed version of the photo over.
Clearly & sadly the 366 project is dead! Once the schools started, I wasn’t able to follow-up with shooting & posting every day
But don’t be too sad, I got a bunch of photos to post!
Here is the latest one from a trip to Arz last weekend.
The ice over the snow made them look like miniature cedar trees!
let me know what you think of it
