The Outsider's Insider

A Guide to Living in Yerevan

About April 10, 2010

I’m just a regular country girl from Ohio who never pictured herself living out her life in any other country, let alone Armenia! I have no Armenian roots; I married into them! My husband grew up in Yerevan and we moved here in August 2006 (for me…sight unseen). I am a teacher who specializes in teaching English as a Foreign Language and a freelance copy-editor. My husband and I have built a life here and I hope I can share a little bit of what I have learned with you.
If there is anything in particular that you want to know about just send me a message and I will do my best to give you the info you need. If it’s not something I already know I will use all my little ways to find out for you!

    I think that this is great. You’re a good writer and I’m sure that there are other people like you that don’t have a clue about living in Armenia. Good luck with it.

    Hi Lori,
    I just came across your blog while searching for a Yerevan map online ! 🙂
    Although I haven’t read much in your blog yet but it sounds quite exciting to see how my Yerevan looks through a foreigner’s eyes. Yet I have to admit that you not a foreigner to Yerevan anymore after having lived here for more than 4 years 🙂
    I’ll be following your posts with great pleasure.
    All the best !
