  1. Now that is a country I know so little about. Recently read a little about some sad history. The countryside looks majestic and this shots make me want to learn more.

    1. A very sad history through the ages. The genocide museum was soul destroying..

      1. I can imagine it is not easy to forget.

      2. I have heard a bit about that. We have some folks here who immigrated from Armenia.

        1. Most tourists in Armenia are Armenian diaspora.. Quite amazing really.. They pay for parks in the town and support what they can.. It’s quite enlightening really..

          1. That sounds wonderful. I had no idea the Armenian economy was struggling.

    1. Thank YOU πŸ˜‰

  2. It’s amazing how much snow there is still all over. Welcome home and glad you had a good trip.

    1. Thank YOU.. Home to cold wet summer.. πŸ˜‰

  3. What fantastic scenery as Forestwood says it somewhere that tends to be overlooked. But there again maybe in this day and age you’re better off being overlooked πŸ˜‰

    1. Definitely enjoy the less touristy side of travels here and delicious cheap food.. πŸ˜‰

    1. Worth the trip and very safe.. πŸ˜‰

  4. Wow! What a place! (maybe I can see, a little, why you would fight to keep it πŸ™ )

  5. I, too, am drawn to churches. From the majestic to the simple. I find them to be calm, peaceful, and serene. πŸŒŸβœ¨πŸ’«

  6. Stunning view! πŸ‘πŸΌ

  7. Wow, the vista from that church is certainly breath taking. The churches seemed to dominate an area and seemingly with much sadness than joy in their history no matter what religion it is!

  8. Great important post, where you make the main focus, really makes me happy for its necessary of importance.

I would be delighted to hear from you ;-)
