Baku, Azerbaijan

After visiting Norway & Sweden earlier this year, my heart had been wanting to explore at least one more new destination before 2018 comes to an end.

This has to be one of the most spontaneous trips I’ve ever taken. This is exactly how it went down: I covered 2 weddings over Friday & Saturday. Sunday I checked my schedule for the rest of the week and found it very flexible. Moved around a few meetings (a super shout out to the amazing & most understanding brides). Booked the tickets on Sunday. Packed my bags overnight. And flew to Azerbaijan super early on Monday morning.

Don’t listen to what they say. Go SEE!

Here is another installment ofΒ #RimaTravels. This time,Β to Azerbaijan!

I was pleasantly surprised to find that Azerbaijan is a lot more developed and tourist friendly than its neighboring country Georgia (I have no clue why I still haven’t shared a blog from my visit to Georgia).

Few things in Azerbaijan left me absolutely fascinated. The mud volcanoes, AteshGah, Jabl al Nar (the fire mountain), Four Beauties waterfalls, left me in awe by the miracles of the Almighty.

On the other hand, I thoroughly enjoyed the new side of the city like Hyder Aliyev Center (gorgeous curvy architecture), Jumma Mosque, & the hustle bustle of Nizami street.

 

Hope you enjoyed Azerbaijan thorough my lens. Until we meet again with other wanderings of mine, do check out my past travelsΒ around the world.

Already looking forward for future adventures,
~ Rima (The Explorer)
