Lake Sevan to the border and having some funny story

Apr
26

Second day after Sevan lake

Next day I passed the tunnel and I cycled a long downhill to dilijan. After that road was quite fine but still I had some hills. Weather was quite nice, fortunately no rain and just a heavy fog which was just like spring. I was passing though a jungle in a hill but actually I couldn’t see anything. But I could feel spring. I really like that foggy weather very much. I cycled 100km that day then I reached a river down in the valley. It was a very beautiful place and just perfect to stay overnight. I could cycle for more one hour but I didn’t like to lose that beautiful place. I was looking for a place to camp under a roof. In that day all day I was dreaming a very nice and quiet place. I really wanted to enjoy silence and peace and myself. I wanted to listen to the river and birds and not to talk at all, not even to hear anything just birds and river. I saw a beautiful small church ...

Leaving Yerevan

Apr

First day, leaving Yerevan
Finally I left Yerevan after such long time I was there waiting for my visa’s, even though I couldn’t get any.
My Armenian visa was going to expire on 26 and it was my last day I ever could stay in Yerevan. Actually last day I was going to leave but to be honest I was feeling to stay another day. After having all those beautiful days with Gagik in his house it was really hard to leave and I just kept postponing my journey to Georgia.
There was no time left…we had our last goodbye party (we had 3 times and I didn’t leave!!) and I packed.

Planting tree in school 49

Finally after such a long time staying here in Yerevan I was going to leave Armenia and Yerevan but another school was organized for tree planting. Gagik and I went to school no 49 where Gagik’s son is studying. First we went there but we could meet principle and on the next day we went there again…principle was gone. But he just left school and Gagik jumped on his car and drove fast.

Planting tree in some schools in Yeghvard

In Yerevan I met Maryam Sukhodyan who is human’s right and environment activist, a very strong but kind person who actually has devoted her life for human being and also nature. We met first somewhere around Abovian street and we spend almost a whole afternoon talking. At night while I was chatting with her over FB she sent some requests to her friends asking for co operation of tree planting.

Planting tree in school 195 "Yerevan"

On Tuesday April’s 12 I was looking for a school to have another workshop. Gagik was driving me around the city looking for an opportunity whole the day. We went to many different places but we couldn’t find any. It was a bit pity as I was really eager to have more school to talk here in Yerevan. In the afternoon we went to visit his friends’s mother. A 90 years old lovely lady..

Planting tree and workshop in Artzakh dormitory

In Yerevan after I had few days rest and getting to know again what I have to do while I am traveling I began to realize where I am and what I should do.
It took me few days to born again in my original world which I was away for such a long time.
after 2-3 days I began to look for a place to plant a tree and of course Red Cross was one of the places I knocked for an opportunity to find somewhere for my job.

Goris to Yerevan

Mar
29


Goris to Spandaryan


Anyway I began to ride around 11 and after 40min I arrived to Goris. I found an internet café and spent an hour surfing the net reading my emails. after I left Goris actually the most difficult part of that road was going to start. Again climbing a hill and I reached to 1800m and then road was smoothly going up but there was too much snow everywhere and the road was the only where I could see which was not white. I had a very strong wind ahead and coldness. It was really hard to push the bike and I also was tired after 6 days of cycling.

Armenia .. Start a new life on the road ... ( Agarak to Goris )

Mar
28

Agarak to Kapan
In the following morning I woke up hoping for the rain to stop. Still there was some drops of rain but nothing very important which could stop me moving.
The family next room invited me to have breakfast with them and then I was ready to start cycling out of Iran after 2 years and 21 days.
I left home around 9:30 and began to ride. Just after 5 min I stopped to check my cell phone from Iran, it was still working, so I made my last calls to my family and friends. The road was along the river parallel with Iranian road. Still I could see Iranian cars and Iranian villages and trees…
