The time has come to put in writing one of the best trips in my life – from Sofia to Sofia hiking through the heavenly beautiful Rila 7 Lakes, tasting wine in Melnik and hang out in Blagoevgrad. I made the 7 Rila Lakes trip just before moving to the Netherlands to remind me how beautiful Bulgaria is. I treated myself to a unique hiking experience exploring the 7 Rila Lakes and the great scenery you can admire from the Melnik cliffs.
Blagoevgrad reminds me of my last trip in Bulgaria before starting my new life in the Netherlands. With a French friend of mine, we visited the Rila Monastery, hiked the 7 Rila Lakes, made a stop in Melnik for some more hike and wine and ended our trip in Blagoevgrad where she lived back at this time. That why I can’t wait to go on a city walk in Blagoevgrad – the city that is nestled in the Pirin mountain.
