WOW! Great Start to a New Year: Bulgaria Ranks Among the Top 10 Countries to Visit in 2014


…And we are back with the first edition of “Spotted!- All About Bulgaria” for 2014. We hope you had a relaxing and refreshing holiday season. (OK maybe NOT!!! Who are we kidding? – holidays are rarely quiet and relaxing with all of the commotion that out-of-town family members can bring, but after all that is what makes this season oh so special, isn’t it? 🙂 ) Either way, we are happy to have you back and are fired up and ready to start the year with a BANG!

In Bulgaria for the Holidays


It’s Monday and this is “Spotted!- All About Bulgaria”, our series in which we highlight interesting articles and tidbits about Bulgaria and share them with you. This week we are dedicating our post to the fast approaching holidays. If you have not already gotten into the holiday spirit, we hope that after reading what we have hand-selected for you, you will! 🙂 Bulgaria is a real treat during this time of year and although nothing really comes close to personally experiencing it, we will do our best to help you get your fair share of the Christmas-cultural-feast that Bulgaria has to offer. 🙂

A picture speaks a 1,000 words. In that spirit, today we are letting a small collection of Alexander’s truly breathtaking photographs of Bulgaria do all of the talking. Who knows, they might even inspire you enough to book a ticket, pack a bag and head over to some of these places and see them for yourself?! If that happens, make sure you don’t forget to come back and tell us all about your journeys. We’ll be waiting.
