The king and his family are enjoying a "private cultural holiday" in Armenia. Kite-surfing is not new for the Belgian monarch: last year he did it on the North Sea in July, also wishing everyone a nice summer holiday. This time, he is led by music composed by Collegium Vocale Gent, led by Philippe Herreweghe.
Kite-surfing is one of the king's passtimes that we recently got to know, just like painting. Armenia is one of the rising stars in tourism, boasting a wine tradition and the Geghard Monastery and the Upper Azat Valley as tourist hotspots, among other things.
