After an amazing experience lead by the Travel Camel, it was time for another adventure…..this time just in the exclusive company of Dancing Dave and Denise. We’d decided long ago that after spending a couple of weeks in the wonderfully beautiful but rustic environs of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan that a jaunt to a nearby nation was in order to try and shake off the dust and take a good look arou ... read more

I was in Armenia in the mid 90-ies
Back in the mid 90-ies I visited Armenia for two weeks. It was in mid winter so you might say that my experience was unusual. When I read your blog entry many memories return and I now feel that it would be pretty cool to go back there again now 20 years later and first see the country in summer and second to see how it has changed and third to see all the places I missed mostly because I had no guide book and there was no Google to ask for "Things to see in Armenia". Thanks for bringing back memories. /Ake

Back in the 90's
I think it would be cool if you wrote the first part of your blog from memory... giving your impressions of what you remember. Put it on paper before you go and then reflect on the changes you see and if your impressions changes. That could be a very interesting adventure. I'm not sure how much has changed. Yerevan is more than likely where the big changes have occurred. MJ

Maybe I could make one retro and one new blog...
I have photos and a journal from my travels in the 90-ies. I guess I could create a decent blog based on them. after that I could go to Armenia take new photos and make a blog using them. It sounds interesting. Finding the time to do it is another story though. The only time I have done anything similar to that was when I went to Bosnia a couple of years ago. I have a few Before and After-pictures there. See blog number 513363. I have two more of those Befoe and After-photos in blog number 513371 (about Mostar). /Ake

One retro and one new
Great idea! I would love to read both of those blogs so I hope you end up doing this. Love to hear your impressions from the 90's. I really doubt much has changed. I hope you can make the time. I will go back and read your Bosnia blogs. Sounds interesting.
