“Remember what Bilbo used to say: It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.” – JRR Tolkien
Introducing “From the Road” series!
I’m a bit weird, but you all know that by now, OCD is not helping ha ha
You would ask why? Lets hire a private driver, who will take us from the point A to point B in more or less comfortable way, who will take care about our luggage and will speak English.
But this way you are missing on a lot of interactions with local people which often are the most precious memories from travels.
I take many pictures from the taxis, marshrutkas, tuk-tuks and any other possible form of transportation that you can think of. And maybe they are not all that beautiful and ‘set up’ as pictures from my desired destination, but they are a core, a base and the reality of the countries I visit, that is why I want to show it to you.
Baku – Qusar Journey
In today’s “From the Road” I want to show you pictures from 3h journey in marshrutka from Baku to Qusar.
You want to know more about Baku – Qusar connection?
It is very simple, you need to reach Baku Main Bus Station, by metro(Avtovağzal) or taxi and find a stand to Qusar. The buses/marshutkas are taking off every 30 minutes, but if you like to be 100% sure, like me, just check bus schedule.
It was very sunny, hot day I would say. 30 people all together, 6 (luckily) quiet little kids. Everybody with their belongings, including my 23kg bag.
One little break for a quick tea. Oh, people here love ‘cay’- tea. And not that I say you should expect to get it everywhere for free, but so far I didn’t actually paid for many.
If you share my love for From the Road pictures, email me and I will be more than happy to host your article on my site. More about Azerbaijan here. Like what you read? Love pictures from the road? Tell me about it!
