  1. If you could only visit one of the three countries, Georgia, Armenia or Azerbaijan, which would you choose and why?

Georgia.  I fell in love with people, nature and food. Tbilisi feels very European with a great café culture, and a youthful buzz. Georgia has a very warm and welcoming feeling. It is a must visit country for people that have a strong interest in food and wine, just ask Anthony Bourdain!
