We woke reasonably late following the feast and free flowing wine the night before. After gathering ourselves and our packs, we headed down to our homestay family’s small dining room for breakfast.
Refreshingly, what was expected of her was the same thing that was expected of Lara Stone: to take a beautiful picture.
We were making our way to the Rila Mountains, where we were visiting the Rila Monastery where we enjoyed scrambled eggs, toast, mekitsi, local jam and peppermint tea.
We wandered the site with other tourists
Yet strangely the place did not seem crowded. I’m not sure if it was the sheer size of the place, or whether the masses congregated in one area and didn’t venture far from the main church, but I didn’t feel overwhelmed by tourists in the monastery.
Headed over Lions Bridge and made our way to the Sofia Synagogue, then sheltered in the Central Market Hall until the recurrent (but short-lived) mid-afternoon rain passed.
Feeling refreshed after an espresso, we walked a short distance to the small but welcoming Banya Bashi Mosque, then descended into the ancient Serdica complex.
We were exhausted after a long day of travel, so we headed back to the hotel and crashed.
I had low expectations about Sofia as a city, but after the walking tour I absolutely loved the place. This was an easy city to navigate, and it was a beautiful city – despite its ugly, staunch and stolid communist-built surrounds. Sofia has a very average facade as you enter the city, but once you lose yourself in the old town area, everything changes.
Clothes can transform your mood and confidence. Fashion moves so quickly that, unless you have a strong point of view, you can lose integrity. I like to be real. I don’t like things to be staged or fussy. I think I’d go mad if I didn’t have a place to escape to. You have to stay true to your heritage, that’s what your brand is about.
I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or
did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to construct my own blog
and would like to know where u got this from.
You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be actually one thing
which I think I might never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and
very wide for me. I am looking ahead for your next submit, I’ll attempt to
get the dangle of it!
Hi! I’ve been following your website for a long time now and finally got the courage to
go ahead and give you a shout out from Atascocita Texas! Just wanted to say keep
up the great job!
Hi, Neat post. There’s an issue together with your web site in web explorer,
would test this? IE still is the market leader and a good portion of people will omit your excellent
writing due to this problem.
