Good location...

 

 

After hiking Dilijan, I went to Sevan lake. This lake is one of famous places in Armenia. So I met many tourist such as Russian, Chinese, etc...

 

 

Actually the lake was so beautiful!! However my photos don’t look good. If you have good camera 📷, you can take amazing photos!!

このセバン湖、想像以上にビューティフル。雲が多めで隙間から太陽の木漏れ日が射し込む空模様だったけれど景色は美術室に飾ってある画の様です。晴れてなくてもここまでグググっと引き込まれる風景は久しぶり。

 

 

On the top was little bit windy 🌬 I thought I would try to camp here but I stopped. Then I met 2guys from France 🇫🇷 

 

 

They also looked for place where they can camp. So we seeked the place together.

 

 

All angle were awesome 😎

東西南北、どの景色を切り取っても素晴らしい。

 

 

Once we cameback beside of lake. There were many abandon houses. Several houses seemed to be summer house. 

 

 

It’s good idea to own summer house nearby this lake however you have money lol

What I camped with French travelers is second time. First time is in Albania 🇦🇱 

 

 

French people seem to like camping. Or I have many opportunities to meet something like them??

 

 

While sleeping, it was strong wind 💨 and heavy rain came. Once I woke up, but I could sleep again.

 

 

Next morning, they went to North Armenia and I headed out Yerevan. We separated. Bon voyage 🧳 !!

 

 

1h later, I arrived Yerevan. While running to Yerevan, The driver said me “No money !! Don’t worry !!, finally he demanded money 🤣🤣🤣

 

 

I really didn’t have money. So I told What I didn’t have, actually I told about it before I rode, he gave up and said “Don’t worry, it’s Armenian hospitality!!”

 

 

 

Thanks but Definitely you wanted to get money.

I’ve seen it!! But I don’t remember the name...

 

 

I left Vanadzor at 11:30am. Somehow I seemed to be very tired however I only moved from Tbilisi. 

 

 

Next destination is Dilijan. One guy who picked me up told about this place. Also Dilijan is one the way to go Yerevan, I stopped there.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190617054019j:image

Dilijan !!

 

 

One of famous statue is king of forest. As I followed my map, suddenly closed gate showed up !!

 

 

OMG!! 

 

 

But there was one looks like security guy. I asked him how to go to see king of forest. The security guy called and said to follow him. We proceeded narrow passage in bush.

 

 

Yes, there was secret way!!

This statue is not so big. I can’t recall but I think there is like this monster which appears in something anime, isn’t there??

 

 

 

Thanks, man!! If someone wants to see it, ask him!! He will take you here!! 

 

 

Dilijan is famous place as hiking. There are many rotes. I saw there are 1-13 rotes. So people have to choose which is the best way.

 

 

I picked One way is 5km course. Because I had to carry my all stuffs.

 


f:id:orihato:20190617054630j:image

 

This course can see 2 churches. Walking 5km with backpack is not hard but in this case, strong sunshine, steep road and not flat way... many things made me tired... 

 

 

1.5h later, I finally arrived.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190617055448j:image

First church. 

 

 

Ummm... this one was smaller than I expected. Well, I expect next church !!

 

 

20min later...

 


f:id:orihato:20190617055459j:image

Second church.



 


f:id:orihato:20190617055451j:image

Nearly same.

殆ど一緒じゃねーか!

 

 

 

 

Shiiitt!! I was walking almost 2h!! But church was so small and appearance was quite similar 😭😭

 

 

Give me back 2h!!

 

 

俺の2時間返せー!!_| ̄|○ハァハァ…

 

 

Once I cameback beginning point and headed to another mountain. Let’s hiking again!!

 

 

Maps.me took me definitely incorrect way. Ok who knows ? Let’s go.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190617060508j:image

These glasses were as high as my hip. I couldn’t see bottom while walking here lol

Early morning (8:15am), I departed Tbilisi. Somehow it was very smooth to proceed to border. 10:30am, I could be in border. 

 

 

Thanks Georgia 🇬🇪 !! I wanna comeback and live, especially Batumi is one of my favorite city in my travel 😍

 

 

There were many tourisim from China 🇨🇳While I was waiting, Armenian people asked them about nationality. Chinese seemed to be able to replay, I said about it insisted of them.

 

 

 “They are from China. Me?? I’m from Japan”

 

 

Then one Chinese woman said “No! We are from Korea!!”

 

 

 

 

.........…….……………...............(゚∀゚)???

 

 

 

Really??

 

 

 

Coz they absolutely spoke by Chinese and their passport is Chinese!!

 

 

 

I don’t know why they lied 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

 

 

When I did passport check in counter, I also asked immigration. He said “Many Chinese came today!! Hahaha!”

 

 

Definitely they are from China. Why you lied!!

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190616023740j:image

Armenia 🇦🇲!!

 

 

Chinese used bus. So I arrived before them. Then I talked with kind of tour guide. She said that we come from Hong Kong 🇭🇰.

 

 

Oh you’re from Hong Kong!! It’s totally different from China!!

 

 

But.. why she said from Korea.... honestly she would say from Hong Kong. Or I could not hear??

 

 

Well, I was little bit nervous that I would be stuck here because I have Azerbaijan Visa.

 

 

Fortunately immigration seemed to think that I am one of Hong Kong tourists. So they didn’t give any questions and stumped.

 

 

Haha!! Fucking easy to enter Armenia 🇦🇲!!

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190616024549j:image

 

 

My first destination in Armenia is Vanadzor. On the way a car which picked me up took Sanahin.

There was one of famous Armenian church ⛪

I did Camping !! So I can’t upload yesterday.

 

 

言い訳はしっかりです。えぇ。

 

 

I decided to leave Azerbaijan in the night. At first I would go to border Hitchhike but I found cheap train ticket. 

 

 

From Baku to Bejuk-Kjasik.

 

 

Where is Bejuk-Kjasik

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

 

 

It is last station and near border which is not famous than any other.

 

 

The distance is almost 500km and spend 9h but price is amazing.

 

 

9Man(4.5€)!!!

 

 

 

 

Wow━━━━━ヽ( ゚Д゚)人(゚Д゚ )ノ━━━━━━wow!!!

 

 

I can sleep and close border!!

 

 

No choice. I decided to buy it. I left home at evening. As I didn’t have coin for metro ticket, I walked 7km.... fuuu...fuuuu....

 

 

コインが無かったから電車のチケット買えず。。。7kmバッグパック背負ってセントラルステーションに向かう。フゥフゥ……_| ̄|○

While I was walking, I sweated as like Iguasu water fall. When I arrived central station, Only I looked like to get storm ⛈ 

 

 

 

Ticket office accepted credit card however I paid cash. And some people could speak English.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190615044639j:image

⚠️Look carefully!!

 

 

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190615044649j:image

6.8man(3.5€)!!

 

 

Certainly there was cheaper ticket than online!!!

 

 

Of course I chose most cheapest seat. Btw online sell from second class??? I recommend to buy ticket in station.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190615044710j:image

waitng space. Although it was written “free WiFi”, it didn’t work.

 

 

The time which I leave came. I headed out to platform.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190615044715j:image

 

 

There were many people. This train seemed to stop some cities.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190615044732j:image

For poor people 

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190615044743j:image

Train was as well as I took in Russia. So they have hot water.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190615044831j:image

Chai is 0.5man otherwise water is free.

 

 

So Russian train doesn’t have air conditioning ( especially in this case??), inside was horrible hot and humidity.

 

 

Thats why people opened window.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190615045112j:image

Next compartment opened.

 

 

So we also tried to open...

 

 


f:id:orihato:20190615045023j:image

Why only my compartment can’t open!!😭😭😭however besides could be and looked like comfortable than ours.

 

 

なんで奇跡的にも俺のコンパートメントだけ窓が開かねぇんだ!!!

 

 

Around 2am, it started to be cool... finally...

 

 

8:00am, train arrived. Most of passengers used taxi but I walked 5km until border. Then nothing happened in both of immigrations.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190615045854j:image

Straight road to border.

From border to Rustavi was 1.5lari by bus. And From Rustavi to Tbilisi was hitchhike.

After burning day, I went to mad volcan 🌋 .

 

 

One of famous mad volcan is in Colombia 🇨🇴 This volcan is so huge that’s why many people swim.Otherwise in Indonesia, Costa Rica, etc...

 

 

Do you think what this volcan is dangerous ??

 

 

Answer is NO.

 

 

It is the mud that spouts out with the underground gas. In wikipedia, "The topography and the phenomenon that clay in deep underground erupted on the surface or the sea bottom with groundwater and gas etc."

 

 

泥火山(でいかざん、泥水噴出孔、英: mud volcano, mud dome)は、地下深くの粘土が地下水およびガスなどとともに地表または海底に噴出し、堆積した地形や、その現象のこと。

火山の名称が付けられているが、必ずしも火山活動と関係のあるものではなく、溶岩などに比べるとその温度は非常に低い。

*Wiki

 

 

Well, Let’s go there !!

 

 

There are local bus as I searched how I can go. So I took a bus.

 

 

My destination seems to be popular place because of bus terminal But passengers were decrease and decrease...

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190613130855j:image

Finally I’m alone...

 

 

The bus suddenly stopped small bus stop.

 

 

 

🤦‍♂️

 

 

 

Google let me take fake bus. Que mierda.

 

 

Luckily I found one bus which goes to bus terminal.

 

 

And I met Igor again haha. Although he went to Russia from Georgia, he changed his plan. This morning he arrived Baku.

 

 

This bus terminal to mad volcan is 1man. A taxi driver offered us in front of the bus lol.

 

 

He explained “This bus is 1man!!! You can go near volcan. But you have to walk one way 10km!! So total 20km!! Come my taxi!! It’s 20man!!”

 

 

 

 

20 ((((゚ロ゚*)ノ

 

 

 

So expensive !!!

 

 

 

I heard my friend experience and saw map. Both of them said 5km. 

 

 

BTW, why you explain in front of exactly bus?? And crazy cheating price ??Lol

 

 

Of curse we chose the bus.

 

 

While we were walking, we saw many oil places.

One hour later, we reached upon top. There were small mountains as kids made.

Burning 🔥

 

 

Baku has 2 famous places. Both of them are relation fire. One of them is fire temple, another is burning mountain.

 

 

バク、燃えすぎだろ。

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190612032755j:image

Metro card.

 

 

This card is 2manat. The machine which we can buy ticket accepts just 2. Otherwise it don’t accept at all. 

 

 

And one time costs 0.3manat. You can use metro and new bus however almost  main bus is old type lol

 

 

At first I went to fire temple. Actually it doesn’t means that temple is in fire. They have small fire which has been since long time ago.

 

 

But the real is what this fire seems to be artificial🤣

 

 

I guess in the night this fire would turn off to save money...

 

 

Well, I arrived one station. And near this station has a big stadium which EL final was opened.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190612032813j:image

 

 

Although Azerbaijan is football is popular , domestic league is not so big. So how they use this stadium in the future..?

 

 

I transferred train to bus. Bus number is 184.

 

 

Of course the bus is old type. I had to pay by cash 0.3man.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190612032839j:image

fire temple 

 

 

OMG!! if I wanna see inside, I had to pay entrance fee..

 

 

fee is 4manat. 

 

 

Ummm I was wondering... then I checked how scale fire is from entrance.

The fire is small and probably artificial.. otherwise inside doesn’t have interesting points...

 

 

Ok I could be satisfied 😎

 

 

I cameback the station once and headed out to burning mountain. Bus number is 217.

 

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190612032954j:image

fee is free(?)

 

 

Although I could enter as I didn’t pay, I don’t know it’s correct or not (゚∀゚)

It’s short trip in Azerbaijan. I and friend Raoof went to Quba. Raoof is Indian & Canadian. And he grew up and working in Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦. 

 

 

Its first time to see a person who is in Saudi!! 

 

 

My Saudi image is this↓

Ummm 🤔  It’s difficult to distinguish between Saudi woman and Ninja...

 

 

They might be Ninja.

 

 

But Raoof said some parts of people do this style. Not all.

 

 

Of course what people think about gender gap is true. Man has quite big power. Woman doesn’t have liberty at all. 

 

 

2 billion % can’t change this culture or system from inside. How do Saudi people  think about it!! Now is 21century !!!

 

 

Well, we talked kind of thing while running to Quba.

 

 

Btw bus departs every 1h from International bus terminal. It cost 4man.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190610052029j:image

Doesn’t make sense WIFI..

 

 

2h later we arrived. The bus which head out to our destination already finished so we just strolled in town.

There were many kids. Actually I noticed they were not gypsy but Raoof was carefully watching them lol 

 

 

When I told him that they just wanna know or talk with us, he also told me that be careful!!!

 

 

Beyond the park, we saw dirty river.

synagogue 🕍

 

 

Wow!! Even Muslim country has Jewish community!! It’s so interesting!!

 

 

and I could find many synagogues in this town. I guess this town has a hint to make peace...

 

 

Unfortunately I couldn’t speak with locals, next time I try to ask. This problem is easier than Nagorno Karabaj.

 

 

And Israel supported Azerbaijan when Azerbaijan and Armenia was fighting (゚∀゚)

 

 

Why Israel supported them?? The opposition side, Why Azerbaijan accepted them?? It’s so interesting.

 

 

Quba was so curious town for me.

 

 

When I cameback Baku, I also find curious bronze.
