I bought my tickets!! Any comments on the Caucasus?

Feels like I've been planning my fall trip forever, although I only got back from France at the end of April! Still, it's changed some - the original idea was Eastern Turkey - Georgia - Armenia - Azerbaijan - Iran. Between Ramadan, a new requirement for an expensive LOI for Azerbaijan, and the situation in Iran (it's not clear I could get a visa right now for either a UK or US passport), the trip is now Georgia - Armenia - Syria - Lebanon - Jordan. With a couple of nights in Istanbul, and a few in New York.

I just stopped procrastinating and bought the long haul tickets - JFK-IST-BUS leaving 9/13 and IST-JFK on 11/12! (And without benefit of alcohol, too.) I still have to buy the short haul ones - I'm going to fly Yerevan-Aleppo instead of spending a couple of weeks going overland through Turkey. So now I have to get serious about the itineraries (roughly four weeks for the Caucasus and four weeks for the Middle East).

Any feedback on this outline:
Batumi - Akhaltsikhe - Kutaisi - Tbilisi - Kazbegi - Tbilisi (day trips) and
Vanadzor - Dilijan - Lake Sevan - Yeghegnadzor - Yerevan (day trips)?
