Introducing “From the Road” series!
I’m a bit weird, but you all know that by now, OCD is not helping haha
You would ask why? Let’s hire a private driver, who will take us from the point A to point B in a more or less comfortable way, who will take care of 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.
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 a 3h journey in marshrutka from Baku to Qusar.
It was a very sunny, hot day I would say. 30 people altogether, 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. I do not say you should expect to get it everywhere for free. But so far I didn’t actually pay for many.
