    - availability of ATMs. We changed Ä500 into local at the border with Georgia and used credit cards to the tune of £500 for a toal of 31 days (24 Georgia). As I recall ATM's and cards widely available / used.
    - but what about vehicle insurance? Is this what you did on the border? Yes in Georgia with a broker but we could have arranged prior to entry. It wasnt mandatory! Armenia you need(ed) to buy their local insurance at the border
    - How easy was it to find water and diesel? No problems with either.

    Georgia is definitely more western and easier to negotiate -good English etc. Armenia is more rooted in the Soviet era and less English more Russian although we sensed that was changing.

    We would love to go back and do both Azerbaijan and Iran. In the case of the former RHD can be temporarily imported as a tourist. Whilst we would love to do Iran I feel that the Stans are a more realistic option.

    In searching for info beware of much that is second or third hand on the web and often posted years ago: things are changing!

    Short notice, it's the Horizons board meet this coming weekend. Well worth going to, last one I was at there was a few companies organising 4x4 own vehicle trips over that way. Usually offer a lot even if you have no intention of going on their trip.

    Would have gone to HUBB meet, but going to Germany this weekend.

    Yesterday I emailed the Azerbaijan consulate about the right-hand drive and Iran about a tourist visa without sponsorship. See what we get back from them.
    Sitting on a boarder for three days for one day Visa entry isnít my idea of fun. These short visas are for transit through.
    We have plenty of time but Iíll keep you posted on what we find out and what we discover. If it all becomes too difficult it may not happen but I think certainly Georgia and Armenia are good to go.

    Alternatively I believe there is a midnight train to Georgia!

    Well here is a country that does want visitors. Below is the email I just received from the Armenian consul. How warm and welcoming is this?

    Copied...
    First of all allow us to say Ė welcome to Armenia! And regarding your request we think you are all set to visit our country, if your pets have all required papers for EU. You really donít need visas and for insurance also no problem Ė there are international and local bank branches could provide to you good service. But in case Iím going to ask our colleagues to check everything and shall come with answers very soon. By the way, when youíre planning to go there?

    Your question : Any entry or exit requirements that we should take into account for them?
    Give sunshine smile to customs Ė they really need it.

    Just a heads up, there is currently a foreign office warning on border troubles between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
