A Travellerspoint blog

By the Caspian Sea

sunny 25 °C

Once again I'm starting up a blog to share my journey abroad with friends and family across the globe. This time I have ventured to the country located at the coast of Caspian sea, a land between Europe and Asia; Azerbaijan.

Now how did I end up here? Well that started two years ago when I joined AIESEC, a student run organization aiming to have positive impact on our society through providing experiential leadership development opportunities. Now after having served for one year on the national team in Norway I will be leading the national office in Azerbaijan for the next year.

Today is already my third day in Baku and I'm starting to feel like home already, I have had a beautiful first few days, seeing the city and meeting the leaders I will be working with over the next year. Hearing the inspired voices of the AIESECers, sharing their vision and purpose. If the next 365 days will be as engaging and exciting as these, I know I'm in for the year of a lifetime. Of course, I have worked long enough with these sort of exchanges to know that I'm bound to suffer culture shock at some point, but as for now I'm enjoying the experience.

So far I have enjoyed the Azerbaijani hospitality given by the AIESECers and I'm starting to discover the city that will be my home for the next 13 months.

❤ from Baku,
Camilla
