The country of Azerbaijan lies at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and the Middle East, so it has influences from each region in regards to cuisine, religion and culture.
Azerbaijan has everything from beautiful sights to a vibrant culture. In addition, walk through the streets of the capital, Baku, and you’ll notice the cleanliness. Rubbish bins line the streets, and people use them. Not only does littering come with a hefty fine, but it’s considered a taboo in Azeri culture.
Not only do I love the mixed culture and delicious food, but it’s also just two hours away from Dubai.
