About me

My name is Milena Yordanova. I am the face behind this blog. I also run a blog for homemade beauty recipes and DIY things, called Natural Homemade StuffIn short I am a full-time blogger.   

Working as a blogger is awesome, but it hasn’t been always like this. I have worked many years as a software developer, but this never was my dream. So in the beginning of 2017 I took a leap of faith and quit my permanent job. I wasn’t looking for happiness. I wanted to do something that I was passionate for. I wanted to get up of the bed with an eagerness to work. I also wanted to travel more and to spend weeks exploring a new city.     

You can find out more about me in the series Behind the blog.

My travel style

I am not permanently on the road and I am not a backpacker. I can’t live out of suitcase for years or even months. I love to have a home where I can work in peace. My base is in Sofia, Bulgaria. It’s a cheap country in Eastern Europe. If you haven’t been there, you should check it!

My trips vary from weekend getaways to a few weeks exploring a new country. I usually travel with a friend or alone (very rare), but always with my travel companion – the little brown bear Bjorn. Its name means “bear” in Danish.

Before going anywhere I make a deep research of the place. I want to know everything: the history of the country and the city, which landmarks are worth visiting, which are the best places to eat and the coziest hotels.

It is an exhausting research, but it’s worth the trouble. Knowing all this information you can really dive in the spirit of the city and won’t miss anything interesting. You can find all this useful information gathered in my blog.

About the blog  

I created My Vacation Itineraries at the end of 2013. My blog has two main purposes.   

The first one is to show you how to organize your vacation easily all by yourself. You can find all kind of useful information such like: where to stay, what to eat, what to pack and even detailed itineraries for the cities I have been to.

The other is to inspire you to travel more, to see the beauty of the world we are living in.  

I regularly update the old blog posts with fresh content. You can find the date of the last update under the title of each post.

Follow me on Instagram for daily travel inspiration!

You can also subscribe to my newsletter. You will get once a month details about my trips, how much I spent, where I stayed, places that I fell in love with and my future travel plans. Get all of this, weeks before I publish it on the blog.

      Thanks.

  2. Just wanted to come over and say a BIG thank you for the follow on my own wee blog. The delay in replying has been for a good reason….I have been travelling, experiencing new cultures, new scenery, different wildlife and some strange food.

  3. Your experience in a culture will be shaped by how much you respect that other the culture (and language, history, customs) and bother to learn about it as best one can before you immerse yourself. Otherwise you walk in blind, and you might as well never leave home. Totally agree with this approach.

  4. How refreshing to read your “About Me”. Our philosophy on travel is the same. Doing research and understanding the culture and what to expect pays off in a huge and wonderful way. I’ve been researching our upcoming trip to Switzerland and Italy for about a year and I still feel there is so much more to research! Good for you! Thanks for the follow!

  5. thanks for following my blog….and really looking forward to reading your future travelogue’s…..
