​Week-end "Boarding Gate Locked-up" Life in Baku Airport, Azerbaijan

95th on my continuing saga to accomplish the #lakbay100 journey
May 17 to 18, 2019

My 74th solo backpacking trip37th country to visit in Asian continent95th country visited on my journey #lakbay100, 5th continent on my list and of course and usual budget do-it-yourself itinerary from arrival to departure. I did not research that much for this country due also on limited time and laziness.

Azerbaijan is the largest country in the Caucasus and variously considered part of Europe or Asia. The country lies on the Caspian Sea. The majority of the population share a culture very similar to Turkey.

​On my more than 10 years of backpacking, two of my gruesome experience was the missed-out flight in New Delhi due to slow train travel (2012) and the challenge on Immigration Officers going in and out of Israel (2013). Six years after,  Baku airport immigration visa on arrival experience added and topped-up this list, the worst travel experience and the only visa on arrival failed experience I had 😭 #livealifeyouwillremember
