We’ve visited around 40 countries in the last decade and of course we started seeing similarities between all the places travelled. “Oh, this is so Eastern Europe” or “Oh, this reminds me of a French village but with a Greek vibe…” 24 hours in Morocco and I’m totally surprised! The airport is like a mega ritzy shopping center from the future, the cab drivers are as scammy as they come, the “streets” are a total mess/maze, it’s busy at all times, everything either smells amazing or DISGUSTING, the people are pushy and wonderful, cats everywhere ranging from beautiful show cats to sticky, half balding street cats. We are having so much fun!
I haven’t posted in almost a year! I don’t know why, it’s been a fun year with lots of trips and visits from family and friends.
Tel Aviv in April
The Cotswolds for a big 3 day hike across the English countryside ending with a surprise visit in Exeter,
Drunken party week in Sunny Beach with Kelly
Budapest for the Formula One race
Agata and Tyler came to visit…oh and, Arek and his family surprised Agata for a day.
Hung out with my long lost friend Marjo in Portugal
Mom spent a month with us
We also went on lots of mini trips around Bulgaria. In a couple weeks we are going to Morocco with long (enough time to explore) layovers in Germany and Brussels…also, we have tickets booked for Malta in January!
I spent my birthday in Sofia, one of my favorite cities in the world. My birthday celebrations started on the plane where I was seated alone in the emergency row with more leg and arm room I knew what to do with. We rented another wonderfully decorated and cozy Airbnb on the top floor of a 70 year old building. For my big day, I ate 5 star sushi for lunch at the Radisson with a huge Singapore Sling to wash it down, watched a live football match at the arena, visited our friends at Beera for craft beers, drank hot wine at the Christmas market while watching a super lively concert, went shopping after said wine and bought a bunch of things I probably don’t need and finished the day off with a mini dance party and Skype with friends (which I don’t remember). Perfect holiday.
