The Israeli weekend surprises many tourists. It starts on Friday afternoon and ends on Saturday evening after sunset. Sunday is an ordinary working day.
There are no buses and trains during the weekend, only private taxis (which are expensive) and a limited mini-van service (called Sheroot).
It's best not to book flights into or out of Israel during the weekend, because the train service doesn't work from Friday early in the afternoon until Saturday night. The only alternative is a taxi, which is about 10 times more expensive than the train.
What do we mean by saying “a journey to Armenia”? Walking in Yerevan? Or seeing Ararat? Or exploring Khachkars? Trying national food? Communicating with local people? Spending the night in a village house? Climbing mountains? Feeling the nature? The answer is very simple: all the above mentioned and even more.
