благодаря Nasko...

So after a lot of persuasion from my Bulgarian friend, who also happens to be one of my loyal blog readers, I've taken a weekend break to enjoy Sofia – the beautiful Bulgarian capital.

It's been almost a year since I last saw Nasko and I was SO happy to catch up with him and meet his boyfriend for the first time. They treated me very well and organised everything from sightseeing to food and staying overnight in a traditional wooden Bulgarian house! What I enjoyed most was to see the 'rawer' side of the small towns/villages outside Sofia. Bulgarian countryside was breathtaking too especially the beautiful lavender and sunflower fields, the lush pine forests and the mountain backdrop surrounding Sofia. Sofia itself is okay. It's organised like most cities but there's not much to offer except the magnificent Cathedral Saint Alexandar Nevski.

Honestly, Sofia was never on my list of travel destinations, but thanks to Nasko, I enjoyed immensely! I guess the old saying is true - GOOD friends makes GOOD time =]
