Another Travel Journey!

UAE had its national holidays for 4 days this December, so my family and I decided to travel to Armenia – a city of endless charms. Armenia has a rich culture and history, and the two places I visited: Yerevan (the capital city) and Tsaghkadzor (a town) completely have my heart!

In Yerevan, this time of the year is fall, so it was lovely seeing maple leaves everywhere. The last time I experienced fall was in Boston, so the comforting aura of the amber leaves falling off every tree made it extremely peaceful and enchanting.

My tour guide Rosiana was the sweetest soul, and I already miss her. She made us try the most divine Armenian food and showed us around the city’s main attractions.

Then we headed to Tsaghkadzor, a wintery wonderland. I think I might have celebrated an early Christmas with the gorgeous pine trees and slushy snow!

Got some lovely shots!

We also saw the Temple of Garni which was built to the sun god Mithra (Mihr), who is referred to as the deity of light and truth in ancient Armenian mythology. As well as the Symphony of Stones which is a majestic natural monument formed as a result of the collapse of volcanic rocks.

As always, travelling is one of the most beautiful ways to grow, experience, and enjoy. I am incredibly grateful for this trip, lots to see and learn!

  3. You have stopped by my posts but not left a comment but I decided since I had a quiet moment to pop over and see who you are. So young and already so far ahead of many your age group. Travel of any kind expands our bubble. Armenia is a country I have never been to personally. My daughter’s God parents are Armenian though. We met through the US Army. Another kind of travel. Sounds like you move around a bit too. Hope your exams went well and your holiday was everything one could hope for this year.

  4. This was a lovely journey through Armenia. The symphony of Stones is what intrigues me about your post. A first look and I thought it was some type of thatch. Very nice. A quick 48 hours.? Definitely a place worth visiting for its history culture, and charms.
