Ani and Maro are two friends who met in Armenia and proceeded to have wild adventures together. At times they have dared called themselves archeologists, sociologists, modern-day explorers, gastro-bloggers and socialites. Today they merely call themselves freelancers (read: uninsured).

The view from the cliff is extraordinary, and there’s a waterfall. Everyone loves waterfalls.
