Departing for Sofia, Bulgaria


As you may or may not know, I like to travel and usually not the touristy places.

Currently, I am on my way to the capital of Bulgaria. This will be the furthest east I have been in Europe.

Why Bulgaria? Why Sofia? Why this time of year? That’s an easy one. I very often look at flights to see where my destination could be. I happen to come across these flights that were ridiculously cheap. I’m kind of a wanderlust that enjoys exploring new cultures and unknown territory. Most of the time, I don’t mind where or who with. I’m having this adventure with a friend. I automatically looked at hostels and found that they were cheap too. It was a no-brainier, I had to go.

Here I am. After a memorable journey to the airport, where it was chucking it down with rain (to the extent where you just couldn’t see a metre in front with the windscreen wipers on full blast) and diverted traffic through single, puddle-filled lanes, we arrived at the airport. It was a lot busier than I thought as it was 5.30 in the morning.

I don’t find airports daunting or particularly exciting (I like to play a game where I try to guess where people are going), and managed to get to the gate smoothly and without any hassle. When I walked on to the plane, the luggage storage was all full so my bag got taken away to the main bag compartment. After a nap, which I needed as I felt like a zombie, I now wait for landing in Sofia.

I don’t really have an expectations of Bulgaria: I haven’t really research Sofia. My plan is to go to my hostel and ask for recommendations. I’m just excited to see what it has to offer.
