30-year-old Ani Khachatryan is a free spirit. The mandala-lover loves traveling and sees movement through the prism of her environmental activism - hitchhiking - which is her natural choice.
“Hitchhiking is a revolutionary statement in Armenia for me. It is environmentally friendly and a new concept for people to take in as you can help each other with no need to involve money.”
The young mother who earns her money with her handmade mandalas of a boy of 7 years, who has hitchhiked across Armenia and beyond, cannot imagine her travels in any other way - she did not quit when she had her child, as hitchhiking reflects who she is.
