"Once A Year, Travel To A Place That You Never Visited Before"

"There is always a first time"

These are the quotes that remind me about my visit in Yerevan, Armenia.

Since I was a child. I always dream of seeing a snow. My Grandfather always sends me a picture of him during winter holidays in the US. And I was so amazed how the snow looks like in the pictures.

I promised myself that one day. I will see a snow. 

And so do i. :)

Living in a tropical country- The Philippines. We have two seasons, the Summer and of course the Rainy Season. During December depending on the climate, We are experiencing some "winter moments-a bit cold around 22 to 26 degrees during the morning, around 5 AM. As what I experienced. But then again that is without the snow.

I've been to other countries. Such as Malaysia, Oman, and Kish. 

And my next bucket list was to see a snow and I did not hesitate to book a tour going to Armenia, Yerevan.

For those who wish to book their own tours or information how I book the tour package.
I strongly recommend this agency.Check the website of House of Tours.

Friendly Guest Service Experts will happy to assist you. The agent who assists me during the booking was Anita. 

People are asking if I'm afraid to travel alone. My answer is. Of course, I'm not.

Ever since, Working in UAE, Its the part of my job to be transferred in different location and travel to different workplaces, and in some cases if needed- moving out to another accommodation if possible (yeah right .. The struggle is real) maybe somehow I get used to it.

As a first-timer, I was so excited then to see the snow as the plane lands down to the Zvarnots Intl. Airport.

 At that time, the snow was just gradually falling.

That time the temperature was -10 degrees. I'm getting used to it with the temperature in UAE that drops to 16 degrees. 

But I did not expect that its cold as it is. Freezing indeed. Truly, I underestimate how cold the weather is.

The tour guide greets us warmly despite the cold weather. They are very accommodating and hospitable 

The only thing that I noticed while visiting this country is the Language barrier. 

Tip: Before going to this country:

  • Make sure to download an app translator just to make sure that you're not missing anything 
  • Learn their basic words like good morning, good evening and just simple greetings like hello or how are you. 
  • Pack a super thick winter jacket for this tour.

Please Take Note: Upon arrival at the airport, You have the option as well to purchase a prepaid sim card that comes with a free data bundle. 

We visit two tourist spots after we drop by at the hotel, by then we have another tour to visit however due to harsh weather, We decided not to continue since it's too late in the evening as well. 

Thanks for reading :)
