This week, we have Mel, a traveler who took her first plane when she was 3 years old. Since that time she is a traveler and even if she has a full time job and having just two weeks per year for holiday, she travels and dreams about her trips. Here her blog BRB travel blog, but most important, here her amazing photos.
Bulgaria, an eastern European country, is often overlooked by its southern neighbor, Greece. In this former communist country, you will find beautiful mountains with pristine water from glaciers, the Seven Rila Lakes. Several UNESCO World heritage sites like the jaw-dropping frescoes of the Rila Monasteries. Along the Black Sea coast, spend the afternoon smelling the country national symbol, the Damascena rose, in the Balchik botanical garden perched on a small hill overlooking the sea. All through the country, you will find a mix of picturesque little towns and natural wonders like Melnik and its rock pyramids. Spend a day in Sofia visiting the colorful Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the Serdika square and the Vitosha street. In Plovdiv, the hipster city, get lost in Kapana and the old town. 2 hours away from this artsy city, visit the ovni monument, an imposing abandoned communist building overlooking the Balkans mountains.
