Best of 2014

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 and here).

Also I visited Greece for the first time and fell in love with it.

  (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.

In August I visited Plovdiv, which is the second-largest city in Bulgaria. Plovdiv's history spans 6,000 years, with traces of a Neolithic settlement dating to roughly 4000 BC, ranking it among the world's oldest cities. I had never been there, but after this trip I may say that it definitely is one of the most beautiful Bulgarian towns.


I couldn't be more thankful for all the amazing places I've been this year, for the long summer nights spent with friends and all the amazing things that had happened to me.. There were bad moments too, but without rain there would be no rainbows.

The most important thing that I learned this year is the following..

Sometimes people around you won't understand your journey. They don't need to, it's not for them. 

So, live your life like you feel it and don't mind what people around you think. Be weird, be uncommon, be awkward, be strange, be rebellious and simply be yourself. 

 Let's make 2015 a great year!
