Friday has finally arrived and at ~WithLoveFromBG~ we are once again at the end of a very exciting and inspirational, but also quite long week. Still don’t feel bad about us just yet (you really shouldn’t :)), because we have a little secret that we would love to share with you, that helps us stay healthy and energized without breaking the bank. What is it?- you ask! Well, you will find the answer in our daily breakfast!
Today we have the pleasure to introduce you to Kiril Christov or simply Kiro! He is a fun and quirky local Sofian, who besides being the face behind Kiro.bg was also recently a top contender in the Jauntaroo’s Chief World Explorer competition!!! Simply put, he is one SUPER COOL dude!!! Sooo we thought, who better to ask a few travel-related questions about Sofia, than a true local and an ex-Chief World Explorer candidate (you know, that is like the CEO of world travel and explorations!!! )?! So hang on to your hats kids, as this ride is about to get really fun, and meet the tour guide that encourages you to truly explore and make the experience your own!
Two months and seven days ahead of schedule, ~WithLoveFromBG~ reached its yearly goal of 10,000 views!!!
Today, we are kicking the week off with a gem-of-an-opportunity for gastronomy and culture journalists. A friend of ours Bulgarian Wine Direct, a Bulgarian wine wholesaler based in the UK, is offering a fantastic opportunity for a tourism, culture, gourmet or wine journalist to undertake!
A few days ago, an investigative documentary named “Booze, Bar Crawls And Bulgaria” hosted by the famous British journalist Stacy Dooley, was aired on BBC and caused great negative uproar and disgust in the British media against Bulgaria. As a Bulgarian, I strongly ENCOURAGE all of you to watch this film be it on YouTube or when it airs AGAIN on BBC this Thursday and Sunday, and answer this question: “Who is to blame and should be more ashamed for what goes on in Sunny Beach: Bulgaria or the British tourists?”
When I was thinking about doing an Erasmus semester, I looked through the list of partner schools of my university. The St. Cyril and St. Methodius University of Veliko Tarnovo caught my eye immediately. I have always liked Balkan music and I realized that I did not know a lot about these countries. Still, I needed to think about it a while and it took me a lot of courage and a little bit of craziness to choose Bulgaria and not just go to other countries where I knew the language and have been before.

“Every time I spot an article on Bulgaria, I get really excited and read it in one breath. It makes me happy to see that others are experiencing this great country and are recognizing it for all that it has to offer.”
