Favourite Holiday Destination: Bulgaria


In 2012, I was lucky enough to take a brilliant holiday to Bulgaria, where I managed to hit a few different locations over the course of 2 weeks. This is now my favourite holiday destination ever.

I havent been to lots of countries in Europe, but when I do, I always tend to find that I prefer those to the Eastern side. Bulgaria last year was no exception. We started our holiday in Bulgaria where we met up with the lovely adash and his girlfriend who we know through Lomography. Here we did a lot of sightseeing and just appreciating the awesome buildings that exist throughout the town.

Then it was time to drive through the mountains (the Iskar gorge road), which was idyllic and beautiful, even though the driving was slightly difficult at times.

After this we stayed at the coast for a week in a town called Balchik. This is a gorgeous fishing town and as it was getting to the end of the season, it was nice and quiet for us. The seafood we ate here was amazing and I would definitely like to spend future holidays in this region. From here we took fun day trips to Nessebar, Romania and even a forrest made out of stone.

And for the last stop on our tour we went to Plovdiv for a few days. This was undoubtedly my favourite place and luckily for us we had arrived during some kind of end of summer street festivities going on in the town. There were a ton of old and ornate buildings just begging to be photographed here and I took lots of shots trying to capture them all.
