I would like to introduce you, if you would let me, to one of the MOST precious places in the whole of Europe: Karlovo! In this Bulgarian town, nestled in the arms of the majestic Balkans, you will find a very different rhythm of life. A rhythm so foreign and at the same time so desperately needed by the rest of the world, that when discovered it is only comparable to that very first sip of cold water after a long hike on a scorching August day. Karlovo is not just a place. It is a state of mind and a way of life. If embraced for all that it is, it will keep delivering on its promise of emotional satisfaction long after its visitors have left.
