Holidays are amazing!
I like traveling very much. Especially I love to visit my homeland, Armenia. It is a very beautiful country with a picturesque landscape where inhabit friendly and hospitable people. I stay in our family house which is located in the capital of Armenia, Yerevan. The first thing that I usually do when I am in Yerevan, I call all my friends and relatives. Then I create a schedule of the trip because, usually, I am limited in time while I want to do so many things. Visiting my friends and promenades in the evenings with them are some of my favourite activities. I love being in Armenia in the Summer as many of my friends and relatives who live outside the country visit the homeland as well. Therefore, we have a great chance to come together and spend time there. If I have time, I do my best to visit Kharabax too. It is an amazing place. It is impossible to describe the beauty of the land and the feelings when you are there. It is fabulous.
I love Armenia and want to come back there every time I have a chance.
