Hello everyone, me and my mate are looking at doing the trip of a life time in a few years. Going from Helsinki Finland through the Baltic States, Ukraine, ferry to Georgia. We are having problems in the Azerbajiani leg at the moment. We will be on a budget, but we where wondering the quickest route and some good towns to visit in the south of the country. As we find Baku is out of the road and may cost a bit to much for our massive circle route.
Since we are heading south to Tabriz it seems out of the road...we will then be spending a fair bit of time in Iran, going up through the stans, and then up through Russia, back to Helsinki.
To complete the trip of a lifetime (which will have to mean considerable savings)
But any advice on the Azerbajiani leg would be much appreciated.
Thanks from Downunder
