      Snow in April on the roads

      Armenia 23 hours ago

      Hi, with my friends we are going fot two week bicycle tour around Armenia. Time of tour is from April 15th to May 2nd.
      I'm very interested in how high will be still snow at this time. What about with the roads will be open or closed? What about the maintenance of main roads? And the passes like 2000 asl, 2400 asl...
      Any other tips for bike tour at this time of the year?

    • Dubai - Mumbai - AbuDhabi

      Abu Dhabi Dec 3, 2016 at 10:52 AM

      We have a return ticket from Toronto to Abu Dhabi. We plan to land in A.D. stay there for a couple of days and then go to Dubai. Stay in Dubai for few days. The plan is to buy a Dubai -Mumbai - Dubai ticket on Etihad Airline. to stay in India for six weeks. Etihad flights normally carry passengers from Dubai to A.D. and A.D. to Dubai by bus and have the Airline between A.D. and Mumbai.

      While we would have tickets to go all the way to Dubai when coming back from India, we hope to get off at A.D. and not go any further to Dubai by Bus. Does anyone see any problem in doing so. We would appreciate any input. Thanks.
