Hello from Sofia, Bulgaria!
I (Sam) am here with Caitlin of @theveganword and we've been exploring the city for the past day. We're gonna be traveling in Bulgaria, Serbia, and Montenegro for the next couple weeks on a #VeganLentTour ! .
Basically, Caitlin discovered when traveling in Romania a couple years ago that during Lent in Eastern Orthodox countries, people observing the fast don't eat animal products, meaning lots of vegan food in traditional restaurants and bakeries! .
We had casually talked about doing this trip a while ago, and then we just decided to do it! We booked flights but barely any accommodations, and are learning as we go. I don't know anything about Bulgaria, so everything is very new. It's great to be in a place where you have no preconceived ideas about what it should be like, or what places you need to see. The locals have been all SO NICE and helpful and we've already had lots of fun experiences. I've been posting a lot on IG stories so be sure to pop over there for daily updates! .
Oh and Veren is holding down the fort in Madrid as he has to work (he teaches English in Madrid). We love traveling together of course but we also like doing our own thing - we're both very independent and never hold each other back when one of us wants to do something that the other can't or doesn't want to do. .
Has anyone here been to Bulgaria or Serbia? Send me your recommendations!! .
