"Travel Goals"

I learned a lot of things about my travel to Armenia. It is not only for leisure but the things I discovered that will remind me of this wondrous place. 

"Discover Something New, Share it with the World"


This is my second blog about my trip to Armenia.

I was not prepared. I underestimated how cold the weather in Armenia.
I did not bring any thick jackets that will suffice the harsh weather.

But thankfully, the driver of the tourist agency provided me a jacket-for- rent.


8 in the morning. After breakfast at the hotel. Our tour guide met us in the lobby.
She discusses what and where are the places that we're going to visit.

"ROAD SHOWS"

Our first visit was the Garni Temple -A Unesco World Heritage site. It took us about an hour to get there.

While killing the time. I took the opportunity to take some pictures while inside the car. 

As a Filipino living in a tropical country. We never experience winter at all. Although we experience some chill temperatures below 24 degrees during twilight and during midnight.

I ever wonder. How do Armenians manage to do there errands during this period?
Trust me. It is cold outside. Snow is falling and you need to get up in the morning and go to work.

Water is cold on the faucet. (Good thing- Water heater is available) I even manage to take a bath in the morning despite the freezing temperature. I cant stay longer than 3 mins (lol).

Here are some of the pictures I took:

And finally... Here it is:  


"Garni Temple, Armenia"

The Temple of Garni is an Ionic-colonnaded temple in Garni, Armenia. It is the best-known structure and symbol of pre-Christian Armenia. It is the only standing Greco-Roman colonnaded building in Armenia and the former Soviet Union. Wikipedia
Its my first time to see such an amazing temple. I feel like I traveled back time. The Temple itself and the pure pitch white snowy mountain.
Superb view indeed.

Travel back to the ancient time :)

After visiting the temple. The tour guide offers us to drink an Armenian Coffee. To suffice the cold weather.

Then we go back to the City to visit some of the famous landmarks of Yerevan. The Cafesjian Museum of Art.

All About Watches

If Music has a genre. Watches have it too.




  • Men's Watch 
  • Ladies Watch
  • Teens Watch
  • Kid's Watch


For Men's Watch


There is Chronograph Watch.

What is Chronograph Watch?

-A Chronograph is a specific type of watch that is used as a stopwatch combined with a display watch. A basic chronograph has an independent sweep second hand. It can be started, stopped, and returned to zero by successive pressure on the stem.


Check this out:








Do you notice those 3 buttons above?
If you press on these buttons and the movement of the watch works, Then that is a Chronograph Watch.

Please be mindful that some watches have 3 buttons but 2 of them are not working thus it's for display purposes only.




For Ladies Watch


There are 3 types of watch for Ladies.

And many options to choose from.

One of them would be either Leather Strap Watch, Silicon Rubber or the Steel Watch.

For the Leather Watch.
You can check the picture below for your reference. 





Silicon Rubber Watch.

Here's an example:






 Steel Case and Strap Watch.

Check this one below.



For Teen's Watch

Some watches goes digital nowadays.

Digital Smart Watch

-a mobile device with a touchscreen display, designed to be worn on the wrist.


-The main benefit of a smartwatch is that it keeps you constantly updated without you having to whip out your smartphone.

-The SmartWatch works only and syncs together with your smartphone.

Example of a digital smart watch is Apple Watch.


Analog Watch.


Those type of watches that you read above was all analog.

Analog watch- It was coined to distinguish analog watches, which had simply been called "watches", from newer digital watches. The name refers to the design of the display, regardless of the timekeeping technology used within the watch.

Analog Watch uses the timekeeping technology within the watch compared to the Smart Watch on which it relies to your smartphone.


Here are the pictures of a Digital SmartWatch and an Analog Watch.




See the difference? 










Gentleman's Watch.








 Ladies Watches.





And for the Kid's Watches







Tipsy Tips!!

-Ask the Sales Associate if the Watch is Water Resistant or Water Proof.


What is Water Resistant Watch?


Water Resistant is a common mark stamped on the back of wrist watches to indicate how well a watch is sealed against the ingress of water. It is usually accompanied by an indication of the static test pressure that a sample of newly manufactured watches was exposed to in a leakage test.

So to make it short. You can use these watches for water splash, washing hands or while taking a shower. 



What is Water Proof Watch?

You can only use these type of watch for diving. These type of watches can handle the pressure below sea level. Depending how much is the capacity of the watch can handle.

"Once A Year, Travel To A Place That You Never Visited Before"

"There is always a first time"

These are the quotes that remind me about my visit in Yerevan, Armenia.

Since I was a child. I always dream of seeing a snow. My Grandfather always sends me a picture of him during winter holidays in the US. And I was so amazed how the snow looks like in the pictures.


I promised myself that one day. I will see a snow. 

And so do i. :)


Living in a tropical country- The Philippines. We have two seasons, the Summer and of course the Rainy Season. During December depending on the climate, We are experiencing some "winter moments-a bit cold around 22 to 26 degrees during the morning, around 5 AM. As what I experienced. But then again that is without the snow.

I've been to other countries. Such as Malaysia, Oman, and Kish. 

And my next bucket list was to see a snow and I did not hesitate to book a tour going to Armenia, Yerevan.

For those who wish to book their own tours or information how I book the tour package.
I strongly recommend this agency.Check the website of House of Tours.

Friendly Guest Service Experts will happy to assist you. The agent who assists me during the booking was Anita. 



People are asking if I'm afraid to travel alone. My answer is. Of course, I'm not.

Ever since, Working in UAE, Its the part of my job to be transferred in different location and travel to different workplaces, and in some cases if needed- moving out to another accommodation if possible (yeah right .. The struggle is real) maybe somehow I get used to it.

HERE WE GO!!

Enjoying some  cappuccino while waiting for my flight at Sharjah International Airport


As a first-timer, I was so excited then to see the snow as the plane lands down to the Zvarnots Intl. Airport.

Ground Support
10 Mins before the landing



















 At that time, the snow was just gradually falling. 


Going to the Passport Control Area
Going to the Passport Control Area




WOW


That time the temperature was -10 degrees. I'm getting used to it with the temperature in UAE that drops to 16 degrees. 

But I did not expect that its cold as it is. Freezing indeed. Truly, I underestimate how cold the weather is.

The tour guide greets us warmly despite the cold weather. They are very accommodating and hospitable 
THE ARRIVALS IN THE AIRPORT



The only thing that I noticed while visiting this country is the Language barrier. 


Tip: Before going to this country:


  • Make sure to download an app translator just to make sure that you're not missing anything 
  • Learn their basic words like good morning, good evening and just simple greetings like hello or how are you. 
  • Pack a super thick winter jacket for this tour.


Please Take Note: Upon arrival at the airport, You have the option as well to purchase a prepaid sim card that comes with a free data bundle. 

We visit two tourist spots after we drop by at the hotel, by then we have another tour to visit however due to harsh weather, We decided not to continue since it's too late in the evening as well.
