The Caucasus. Could that be next for us?

Recently (well 3 months back), a friend of ours got on a 3-week journey across Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia. You cannot imagine the amount of ‘jealousy’ (heheh) we had when we heard about that. First things that came into our mind was : “oooh it would have been wonderful to get around with your own group of friends“, “why did you not rope us in?“…

So why didn’t she?

For one reason it was a religious group. So we were reticent about joining and she knew that. Second we are completely spent bankie-wise… and thirdly, we are in the midst of a lot of work – officewise and lack of vacation leave days… Thus, the reason we were left drooling over what could have been. Don’t you have those feeling too sometimes?

But let’s get back to the matter at hand. In recent months we’ve heard and read ever so often about red dotters who have been to the Caucasus. And independently too! Now the length of time they spent across the various countries differed, they showed us how ‘old’ we’ve become… whatever happened to that youthful sense of excitement over adventure to get out there?

Shall we consider to take a plane into Baku and then map out a way to Yerevan from there? Or do we need to have detailed plans on the mode of transportation, accommodations and sights prepared before we embark? Lots of questions today. But as you might know (from our past posts) when we blog about it, we mostly actually will do it.

Have you been to the Caucasus countries before? How did you plan you journey?

  1. Armenia is on my list for sure.
    I’m not so sure about Baku to Yerevan though. Azerbaijan and Armenia fought a war 25 years ago and I’m not so sure you can travel direct. You might have to go via Georgia.

  2. Yes, we were in Azerbaijen in April 2018, It was fantastic. We just swing it and find a taxi to drive us around to another cities. Unfortunately taxi was very expensive there, it was almost like in European countries. cost €150 -200 per day. Other than that, everything was very cheap, hotels and food was great. Ohh.. I really like the food, soo nice and delicious. and the people was very friendly eventhough they did not speak english. I would recommend you to go there before the country become very touristic. We went to Georgia and Armenia 5 years ago where tourist were not common and when we were back there in April 2018, everything have changed and it become very touristic and commercial.
