Female Motorcyclist: “Hahaha. I think we can take this one. This way, yeah.”

Oh dear. Where are we going? Should have taken the other one.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

So we reached this . . . I think it is a monastery.

I don’t know anything about it. I read something on the sign that it is probably built in the 12th or the 13th century. It’s quite old; so just going to have a little look.

So inside it is actually really nice and cool because today is sunny; it’s quite warm.

Oh you can maybe look outside.

So we just bought some water as well, so I am just going to fill up my camel bag because it is already empty. And then we have to back track a little bit because it is a dead end road here.

And then we are going to continue the ride towards Sevan, Lake Sevan, I already forgot the name.

It is quite touristy, a lot of little shops selling all sorts of things. But really nice ride so far really enjoying it.

That part up to looking for a look out point, but couldn’t really find it.

But it was a really fun road to ride; bit rough but we managed. So I am going to fill up the camel bag and then we go again.

Alright let’s go!

Very busy here!
