Georgia Armenia Tips

Hello all! I m venturing again this summer, first week of July into Georgia and Armenia. I need help from those who have been there before, where to stay, what to see, which roads to use...We intend to spend two weeks in those lands.
Thanks in advance for your precious comments.

In Georgia dont miss Svaneti aerea. there are 2 roads to arrive, the one is the easier in a good road the other is show as a micro little road, well was amazing the second option. is off-road and on the top is 2400 metre. is 120 km , maybe 80 of off-road. when i pass with my bike was raining so full of mud and on top there was snow. all made with a 300 kg of moto with almost slick wheels. i took 3 days to do it .... but was worth ;-) enjoy Georgia and Armenia out of the 34 countries on this travel for sure with central asia my best memories ;-)
