Why Armenia? (II)

Tatev Monastery
Everyone who follows this blog knows that I currently live in Armenia. Everyone knows that I blog not only to document my travels and share hundreds of my pictures with you. One of the reasons why I keep blogging is to promote traveling in Armenia and South Caucasus.
I know many bloggers that visited Armenia. I even met some of them during their travels and I follow their sites daily. One day I decided to ask them to help me encourage people to travel to Armenia.
Every Monday from now on, I will be featuring travelers and bloggers that have visited Armenia. Every author will share three reasons to visit the country along with some great pictures taken by him/her while in Armenia.
Today Iā€™m happy to present you Jonny from Don’t Stop Living – A Lifestyle of Travel

So, why Armenia?
1. I have always been intrigued by former countries of the USSR on my travels and I have also visited Azerbaijan, Belarus and a few others, so Armenia was next on the list when I was in that region – I naturally came overland from Georgia.

2. I was fascinated but a little disturbed at the horrific atrocities the Turks inflicted on Armenians during the 21st century and wanted to meet some Armenians.
3. As a person who grew up in a conflict zone (Northern Ireland), there was an inner fascination with Nagorno Karabakh, which can of course only be accessed through Armenia.
