After spending the night in Yerevan upon arrival to Armenia, the AYF Canada Youth Corps volunteers will spend the next 3 nights in Artsakh before heading to Vanadzor to prepare for the camp. We made a few stops along the way at important historical sites. We were lucky that Mount Ararat was in clear view for our group picture at Khor Virap. We stopped at Noravank and Tatev along the way as well. We also enjoyed a tour of the Areni Armenian Winery where we tasted Armenian made apricot and pomegranate wines. After a long day of travelling our Youth Corps team was ready for a good night’s sleep to prepare for our tour of Artsakh in the coming days.
There is much more to come in our AYF Canada Youth Corps Diary so stay tuned!
