Russia and Armenia? Starting to think about 2013 travel

Jump to last reply

I realize that Armenia is in Asia (and thus on the Asia forum; not that there's much!) but I am looking into the possibility of combining perhaps three days in Moscow with 10-12 days in Armenia (or Armenia and Georgia.) I do like to spend some time in one place, and am a huge fan of nature/culture/history, not so much nightlife/shopping/resorts/beach.

The last time I was in Russia was 1989 (and the first time was 1984) and of course I know things have changed considerably. I'd love to go back for even longer, but I thought it might be fun to at least stay for a few days and revisit. (Not going to St. Petersburg as well will be difficult, though.) Any recommendations for either the Moscow or Armenia part, as far as perhaps places to stay (I like less than $100US a night, but with a private bathroom; apartments or B&B's are fine) or day tours to arrange? Generally I travel independently but join up for occasional tours in between the walking around and general existence.

I've been all around the Web and have ordered up my travel books for Armenia, but I've always found this site to be one of the best sources for info. Anything you'd like to share would be received gratefully. :)
