Transcaucasus: Georgia, Armenia, & Azerbaijan
Explore the region between the Caspian and Black Seas, and the sights, sounds and people of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. Documentation of people and landscapes in Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan for MIR Corporation. In order to accomplish this mission, we spent grape harvest season in the TransCaucasus lands where Greek mythology tells us that Dionysus gave human kind the gift of wine. We began our journey in Baku, Azerbaijan, then traveled overland to Tibilisi, the capital of Georgia. After touring the beautiful Georgian countryside with a small groups of travelers on a MIR expedition, we continued to Armenia in time to celebrate Armenian Independence Day. Our stay in Armenia was really special thanks to Nellie Malkhassian, Owner/Director of the Princess Maheh tour company. And, after years of wanting to go, we finally got to see the ruins of Troy during our brief stopover in Turkey en route home.
