(13-15.09.2014, Sofia)

Sorry folks, we had some technical problems (why do hackers care about this lousy blog?!), but now, thanks to the help of a very very patient friend, we’re back in business :)

So, Sofia… First of all, I have to say that Adi and Dana didn’t like it at all. They found it too provincial, too ugly, they didn’t like the fact that the buildings weren’t renovated – all in all they were not impressed.

For Martha and I that was exactly why we liked Sofia so much! We couldn’t get enough of the old buildings, of the many side streets,of the beautiful shops and cafes we bumped into accidentally.

The weather was not that good and I think that’s the main reason why I didn’t take more pictures. I enjoyed more than ever just walking around the city center and looking at everything. We bought lots of Lindt chocolate bars (if we had Lindt shops in Romania, I’d be FAT! – that’s a fact) and I was lucky enough to spot a pair of The North Face shoes in an outlet window – and guess what? They were exactly my size, they were cheap (as cheap as they can get), so I bought them! And now I’m always thinking about Sofia when I’m wearing them :)

I was really impressed with their lack of traffic. Even on Monday morning, when usually Bucharest roads are a complete hell, the streets were mainly empty, there were a few cars, some pedestrians, quite a lot of people on bicycles and… us.

Everything about this Bulgarian trip was amazing: the people, the places, the activities. I’d go anywhere with those people! And I’m unbelievably lucky to have them as friends.

Now that Christmas is just around the corner I’m really looking forward to going back home. I miss my family so much! And there’s a new climbing gym in town and it looks amazing! So everyone who wants to meet up with me will have to do it at the climbing gym (I’m just kidding, Lavinia!).

At then, right after Christmas, I’m going with Adi and my parents to Bratislava. I’ve heard it’s a very beautiful city. I hope we’ll have time get to know it a bit. If you have any tips, please share them.

Ps. Sorry for the very saturated pictures. I’m just learning how to play with Lightroom.

    Sofia vazuta prin pozele tale e superba!
    Abia astept sa le vad si pe cele din Bratislava! Mi-ai dat o idee buna de excursie.

    @L.: Da, și eu aștept să văd Bratislava! Mamei i-a plăcut tare mult în toamnă, când a fost. Sunt curioasă cum e și iarna :) Imediat ne vedem!!!

    I’ve always loved the decadent charm of old cities…
