Armenia stories pt 3 💭✨ #TravelWithMariam
Daily taxi drives and chats with the world’s friendliest and sweetest taxi drivers. You’ll see a lot of elderly men driving taxis and sharing their life experiences and stories with you, giving you advice and having the best attitude e v e r. I always leave them a little extra when leaving the taxi; drivers thank you with tears filled in their eyes.
Public transportation in Armenia has remained extremely cheap over the years. Going to lake Secan (approximately an hour drive from the capital Yerevan) will cost you around 4€. You’ll more likely get an even better deal if you take the same taxi back. Just talk to the driver and see what he suggests. 💭🚕 #DuProblemChunes
Armenia stories pt 1 💭✨ #TravelWithMariam
I want to share a very common Armenian saying called #DuProblemChunes which I’d translate to ”Don’t worry/No problem at all/I’ve got you”.
Be it getting something as small as getting your phone fixed or big as organizing a wedding or maybe ordering a pair of glasses; Armenians simply say ”Du problem chunes”. Something you would think might take ages will get accomplished in a matter of minutes or days.
Your phone will be fixed in 10 minutes, you can order your wedding flowers just a couple of days prior to the wedding and everything will be delivered perfectly #beentheredonethat and you’ll get your new pair of glasses in just one (!) working day after placing your order. Service is kind, accurate and fast. Whatever you have in mind you can get it done very effectively.
With this little story I’m sending you good vibes and happy weekend wishes 💛💭✌🏼✨
