Photography: Hitchhiking Armenia’s Silk Road

Hard to believe, but yes… exactly one year ago, on a gloomy Wednesday morning of November 14th, 2012 together with Emée, a traveller from France (now a good friend, but complete stranger back then), we started out on our hitchhiking trip along the Silk Road of Armenia. Eight intense days on the road, during which our initial idea to compare the life of the Armenians along the Silk Road back in the old times and now transformed into something greater. Our adventure went beyond any terms and ideas, routes and destinations, and we simply allowed ourselves to be soaked in the daily routine of regular Armenians in the cities and villages. To read about our adventures on the Road, click here – Armenia’s Silk Road Trip – 2012. As for this post, I would like to share some photographs from the Silk Road Trip.
