Can’t decide which season is the perfect timing to visit Bulgaria? I understand the importance of deciding ahead of time because even though I’m the queen of misadventures, I’m afraid I’ll never gracefully master how do we deal with failed OOTDs, failed itinerary and a failed expectation. Emphasis on the last part, I’m sure nobody wants to deal with that… ever. So if you fancy going to Bulgaria but still can’t make up a fixed plan, here’s a guide that might help you get around this beautiful country in the Balkans– even if you decide to book that last-minute flight.
I still haven’t met a person who refuses any chance he gets to save money while traveling. This includes cutting one portion of your budget to make something that you want the most happen. For me, it was choosing to travel with less stuff as possible to save money for tickets to Italy and Germany. For others, it might be similar or something greater but whatever the reason is there’s always one important question that we should ask ourselves before we commit to this “almost” life-changing decision. (Yes! Because traveling is life so don’t judge my choice of words. HAHA!) Is traveling with a hand-carry the right choice? Is it for everyone?
For many people, a trip to somewhere in America just has to be on the bucket list! With so many states and territories to explore, you could spend months in the USA and still not have seen it all. There are some must-see tourist destinations if you’re planning on visiting America, such as the Statue of Liberty, the Grand Canyon, and even Disney World in Orlando. However, if you want to get off the beaten track in the USA then here are some ways to do just that!
I finally came to a realization that I have to pack light when traveling. My recent trip to Bulgaria made me carry a 21kg luggage filled with winter clothes to layer and some pieces of clothes for partying and fancy occasions. This also includes 2 pairs of footwear– heels for fancy dates, parties and social gatherings and black winter boots for the thick snow. Well, of course, I had to do everything that I can to keep warm, right? But guess what? Half of the clothes that I brought with me were untouched! I dragged a freaking 21kg luggage to the other side of the world only to find out that I was packing unimportant things in there! WOW! shookt!
Getting a Bulgarian visa is not that common for travelers because anyone who has a Schengen visa, which is a more popular one, can enter this Southeast European country with it. If you’re someone who needs a Bulgarian visa or you’re simply curious how I got mine, here’s a not-so-long post that can give you some information.
Revisiting Mt. Kan-Irag was not as easy as how it went the first time and I’m glad that I did not come empty handed.
Do not misunderstand. I am not an expert here so I cannot give a detailed guide in trekking Mt. Kan-Irag as I am not a “certified” trekker myself. But what I will leave you today is an inexperienced’s first-hand experience in surviving a five to six hours of trekking in the precious Mt. Kan-Irag– hailed as “the mountain within the city”. So if you are a beginner and you want to explore Mt. Kan-Irag (or your trekker friends blackmailed you to do so), this post might be helpful.
Europe is one of the most expensive places to visit. For someone like me, it’s already difficult to afford that plane ticket so how much more the hotel accommodation during my stay? Not to mention, the hassle of applying for a Schengen visa and the fees that come along with it. My trip to The Netherlands was a short notice and I honestly don’t have enough money to enjoy a luxurious trip. So here’s how I was able to save my ass from the expenses while still enjoying my trip..
