An American in Baku


Although Hayley has now said farewell to Azerbaijan, her blog is so helpful that the archive of posts definitely deserves a place here. Originally hailing from Michigan, US, she spent a year co-teaching, acting as an English/American culture resource, plugging herself into Baku’s community, and learning about a culture that she fell in love with.


Life in Baku


Anke shares her view of life in Baku via the medium of her lens and keyboard. Sharing her exploration of the city and the country, either with her camera, riding the local buses or a combination of the two, this is a fascinating window onto life in this country in the South Caucasus region, situated at the crossroads of Southwest Asia and Southeastern Europe.


Expat Exile


Calling himself a middle-aged ExPrat, Kuanyin has spent many years living the expat life - in his own words 'ducking and diving, but never skiving!' His blog isn't updated often, but when the muse seizes him, he writes at length about the culture and practices of life in Azerbaijan - and the archive is well worth a read.


The Brief Note


Although Dustin has now said farewell to Azerbaijan he documented his year spent with the Peace Corps so eloquently his blog still deserves its place here. 2012 was the year that this US native landed in Baku with exactly zero words of the local language, his self produced pronunciation guide is a useful tool and no doubt created out of necessity. He takes you on trips to the big city, out into the countryside and gives you a peek at the hospitality (and hot tea) you can expect living as an expat in this beautiful country.


Fizz Of Life


Even though Kia has now moved on from Baku her blog holds a wealth of information useful to any future or current expats to Azerbaijan. From the basics of where to find baked beans to organisations aimed at helping and connecting the expat community and the best restaurant to take visiting family, you'll find it all here. Her honest restaurant reviews are brimming with accompanying photos that will make your mouth water, her advice is relevant to the recent and long-term expat alike.


Speak Azeri


Colleen is a teacher-librarian and educational writer living in Baku. She is passionate about Azerbaijani culture, particularly the traditional music, which she is striving to master. Eager to learn the local language, she blogs in both English and Azerbaijani and also posts vlogs of her singing and playing instrumental pieces on traditional instruments. Her love of words is only part of the blog, you will also find food a plenty, which is recently gluten free.
