During our trip to Armenia, we spent 2 full days exploring the Northern part of the country. On the morning of the second day, we left our amazing hotel in Lori Province and made our way toward the Tavush Region to visit Dilijan and Haghartsin Monastery.
Before we landed in Armenia, the only thing anyone would tell me about this country is how good the food is. And they were right. Just about every meal we sat down to blew my mind.
During WWI, 1.5 million Armenians were massacred at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. Tsitsernakaberd is Armenia’s official memorial of the Armenian Genocide, and one of the most important things to do in Yerevan.
Armenia is the world’s first Christian nation, so it makes sense that they would be extremely proud of their monasteries.
While Armenia is considered to be the birthplace of wine, it’s another spirit that the country is most famous for… brandy. Ararat Brandy is the leading producer of brandy in Armenia, and they boast gold medals in spirits competitions around the world.
Putting together our itinerary for Armenia was difficult. Aside from Yerevan and the popular monasteries scattered throughout the country, there was very little travel information to be found.
Half of our existence is spent searching for obscure bars with good views, and our trip to Berlin was was comprised of exactly that. Klunkerkranich is a funky rooftop bar located on the top of a parking garage in Neukölln.
I wasn’t entirely sure what the Topography of Terror was before visiting, but as an active seeker of WWII sites in Europe, I knew I had to check it out.
During Nick’s last European tour we had a few days in Berlin between shows. Having only heard rave reviews about the city, we were excited to finally get a chance to see what the big fuss was about.
Street Food Thursday at Markthalle Neun is the mother of all street food events in Berlin. Located in a historic market hall in the artsy neighborhood of Kreuzeberg, the occasion attracts thousands of visitors weekly.
