    Description

    I am kind of easy going person who likes many things: reading, hiking, walks in the moon, dancing in river , playing tennis , etc
    I am curious and looking forward to meet new people, to learn more about other cultures , traditions....
    My favorite song : Scorpions. Wind of Change
    I like watch films and read books about travel in time
    Places you can visit in my country:
    Sights in Stepanakert: monument Tatik-Papik . It is stony granddad and grand mom on the hill. We believe if we touch that stony granny and granddad as a gift from them we get opportunity to build firm family ties and live long life. It is such a pleasure to climb that hill, sit and lean on grand mom, bite zhengyalov hats (green bread) and greet sunrise or sunset. Just imagine: blue mountains around, crazy aroma of wild flowers and green grass, sparkles of orange on sky and serenades of grasshoppers. In the evening you can see 2 shining big crosses on the 2 tops of mountains. I am sure, you and Deni will like that place.

    Other sights in the city: Pyatachok square with singing fountain, free concerts , wigwam of president nearabouts, house of parliament in church; university in public bathrooms, restaurant in the head of pharaoh, church beside casino, university+shop on the old , first men tomb, etc
    Outskirts of Stepanakert: Tto dzhur (water from this spring is rich with minerals and it is bitter to the taste; very healthy water); Horin tak (spring of Trials, it is spring with secret mechanism. I will reveal it's secret later, if you are interested )

    Sights in Shoushi: bird-eye views from top of mountain, breathtaking, great for taking photo. Deep abyss, serpentine road, canyons, strong aroma of newborn grass and wild flowers. That medieval city with medieval streets, private houses, painted walls (3-D scenes of medieval life); museums of ancient carpets, museum of samovar (lamp of alladdin :)) ; monasteries and possibility to ride 4-leg limousin (i.e. donkey). There you can visit Umbrellas (zontiki) cave-waterfall looks like mushroom

    Martouni : Tndzhri tree and at the same time it is kind of church inside of it’s trunk. Beside is pond with grey frogs. If you manage to see green frog among them then make haste to make wish. It will became real for sure!
    Vanq: Gandzasar monastery, Great Armenian Wall made of automobile numbers , Purring cave that looks like head of lion, blue and green mountains, aroma of wild flowers, museum of old Armenian bibles in gandsazar monastery, breathtaking views from it’s windows and a juicy tasty green apples on trees…yummyyy!
    There are a lot of places to visit (pregnant mountain Tizafajt in Hadrut), church-labyrinth with 7 doors, river Tartar (according to legend there were drown 300 bearded men-christians and only true earthlings can swim in that river; others they will draw to the bottom. Would you like to have a go? :) ; hidden under the earth city Tigranakert (we dug it out half); famous mount in Askeran; Canyon of Roses (according to legend Armenian Romeo and Juliet jumped into the canyon in order not to be caught. A bush of rose was planted in the bottom of canyon in their memory. Over time bush overgrown and filled all bottom of canyon. Now it is kind of Mekka for true lovers/couples.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I will be happy to take part in language exchange, to share my experiece with new people (saying, I can help with Russian/Armenian and perhpas Artsakhian if you are interested. Just imagine, you say "ha-ha" and in my language it means "yes, yes". You say "love" and in my language it is "ok". Artsakhian is a fun to learn. What else? Histories and legends I am collecting, my knowledge, experience, positive mood and energy , perhaps talismans from my country or small souvenirs, and family recipe of cooking zhengyalov hac (green bread). Once more: I know 2 ancient armenian lifehacks how to avoid getting wet in rain/snow and find way in thick fog. Both lifehacks work!

    I am passionate language learner and looking forward to learn Danish-Swedish and Hungarian. My friend is from Hungary and I would like to make surprise and show him how much I learned magyarul. Though any tourists that speaks other languages are welcome. My country isn't as known among tourists and I am creating multilanguage phrase book (Artsakh-English-Russian-Hungarian-Swedish-Danish.... etc)

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    armenian wigwam. It is kind of private house on the high hill . The place has big garden and if my guests want they can sleep in tent among fruit trees. But very simple amenities. My house is for lovers of wild tourism. Toilet is outside of home in the court. Water is cold and in the court too. But garden is luxurious one.

    I can acquaint my guests with national cuisine of my country and they can do the same in return (i.e. to acquaint me with their national dishes)
