Prior to doing the Grand Trans-Siberian Express, we went on a whirlwind three-day tour of Armenia. Like most people from my part of the world, I had very little, if any, preconceptions about Armenia, and what I found is a country not only replete with landscapes, but possessing a deep, well-preserved ancient history, a pronounced sense of identity, and beautiful, friendly people. I hope to have captured some of that experience in the video above.
