My name is Milena Yordanova. I am the face behind this blog and I am a full-time blogger.
My life hasn’t been always like this. I have worked for many years as a software developer, but this never was my dream.
So at 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 about. 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.
If you want to learn more about me and my life outside the blog, this is my personal Instagram account. I’m interested in history, WW2, art, dark tourism and World of Warcraft.
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. Bulgaria is a small beautiful 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 cosiest hotels.
It is exhausting research, but it’s worth the trouble. Knowing all this information you can really dive into the spirit of the city and won’t miss anything interesting. You can find all this useful information gathered on my blog.
About the blog
I created My Vacation Itineraries at the end of 2013. My travel 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 as: 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.
