New Year is often a time for new beginnings, to better yourself and correct your mistakes but it's also a time to celebrate the goodness you have also done. We're told to focus on the resolutions, but what about celebrating our achievements? Don't forget that over the past year you have done wonderful things that you should take into this next year with you too.
In the last year I managed to find love again after being heartbroken and confused. I finally finished with the University and got a driver's license. So, I just wanted to say how happy and grateful I am for my family and friends, who were by my side in the past twelve months. Without their support, comfort and love I really doubt that I would handle any of these on my own.
Also, I had the chance to visit some great places this year like Borovets..
..where I ride on a gondola lift for the first time with my baby.
(See more pictures from this trip here, here and here).
I visited some other places in Bulgaria as well even though I didn't post about them.
In the spring my sister and I made a little road trip through the Rhodopes. We visited the historic town Batak, associated with the April Uprising of 1876, one of the most heroic events in Bulgarian history, and a peak in the liberation struggle of the Bulgarians against the five centuries of Ottoman domination. Entering into St. Nedelya Church is something I will never forget. (If you are not Bulgarian and you want to know why, read more about it here).
During this trip we stayed at a hotel situated at the Batak Dam. It's not a bad view to wake up to..
We visited also the Devil's Throat Cave, the Snezhanka Cave and went on a off-road trip to St. Ilia Pick and the Eagle Eye Platform - all extremely beautiful places.
