Sunday Photos – Memories of Azerbaijan

With foreign travel perhaps on the agenda again I am sharing a few photos of my last trip outside Europe to the Caucasus country of Azerbaijan.

Euro 2020 Rest Day 5 – Non Qualifiers – Azerbaijan

Yes Azerbaijan were in the European competition but failed to qualify. Indeed Baku was a host city for a few games. A long way to go for a game of football. Baku has some weird & wonderful architecture as the gallery below will testify.

A-Z April Challenge (Cities Visited) – Q for Qobustan

Qobustan, Azerbaijan OK, I admit I have bent my rules here somewhat. With no major cities beginning with Q in Europe (17 in China with populations over 100,000 out of interest), I have had to go with a region for Q. Qobustan is a region close to Baku in Azerbaijan and the home to some […]
