Sky Garden: perhaps (not) a must on your London must-visit list?

It was barely my second week as a Londoner, and I still had no idea what my first post would be about. I wanted it, of course, to be mind-blowing; something that will urge people to book the next flight to London as soon as they read about it. That’s why I was ecstatic when…

19 pictures proving that Slovenia is a fairytale land

Couple of years ago I arrived in Ljubljana at 4 o’clock in the morning. The city was quetly sleeping and only the occassional light inside bakeries was a sign that it’s soon about to be awake. My love for it was instant. Ever since I’ve been in love with Slovenia and it’s the kind of…

Prep for a jolly linden winter in Bulgaria. Now!

One of the best things about living in Bulgaria is that even in Sofia, you don’t need to distance yourself from nature.
