Well, actually not anymore, but it was true not so long ago. Somehow travelling solo outside Bulgaria was very disenchanting to my parents. I’m currently immersed into the…
my name is Stef and i'm a disappointment to my family
First off, I’d like to welcome you to Kiss My Backpack. Hope it serves your interest and you stick around.
I won’t bore you with my biography, beacause it’s a bit long and you won’t get the right idea about me anyway. However, I will share this with you.
My bipolar personality causes me to love both the wild off-grid outdoors and the cosy interior of a posh villa somewhere on a gold-sanded beach. One day you’ll find me meditating on a mountain peak, greeting the sunrise, the other – you’ll see me getting shitfaced in a dodgy bar.
I travelled quite a few countries around Europe, including Italy, Finland, Turkey, Spain, The Canaries (I mention them separately from Spain because otherwise my Canary friends will kill me), The Netherlands and others. Just before the Corona hit, I came back to Bulgaria and stayed here ever since. I have decided to focus this blog mainly on my homeland, because it certainly deserves the attention.
My own description of me: “A sunny girl, equipped with a camera, smile and many jokes”.
Other people’s description of me: “A crazy Bulgarian” (I hope in a good way).
I have green eyes and I’m extremely untalented when it comes to singing or drawing.
Travelling and photography are the only things that bring a spark in me. I’ve felt lost, I’ve felt down. And only the thought of exploring a place and meeting all the weird people there brought excitement.
My third passion that I recently discovered is writing and bringing life to this website.
I’ve combined all of the above into Kiss My Backpack with the hope I will:
- encourage you to get up on that road
- visit Bulgaria
- make your stay memorable
- help you take some great photos.
"PREACH WHAT YOU BELIEVE"
- I believe that backpacking can and will make you a better person than you were. It has the power to open the mind beyond borders and show you perspectives you never thought you’d look at.
- Another one of my truths is “preach what you believe”. I believe a life can be lived happily, freely and spontaneously. I believe if you want to see a change, you need to be that change and inspire others to do the same.
