Armenia has got to be the easioest place in the world to hitchhike. Certainly the easiest place that I have ever tried. About four times when I stuck out my hand the very first car that passed stopped and picked me up. People are genuinely curious about where I'm from, where I'm going and why on earth I would want to come to Armenia.

Hitchhiking was so easy in fact that I decided to take a 60km side trip to Jermuk to check out the hot-spring town of Jermuk, which is comprised of decaying soviet era hotels in a gorgeous valley.
