About me

Welcome to my travel blog! My name is Milena Yordanova and I am the face behind My Vacation Itineraries.

I’m a full-time travel blogger based in Sofia, Bulgaria (a lovely small country in Eastern Europe). Travelling has always been my passion and I love to discover new places, cultures and food.

My trips usually vary from a weekend getaway to a few weeks exploring a new country. And if I am not travelling at the moment, you’ll find me planning my next trip!

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.

About the blog

Before visiting a new place, I always make complete research about it. I want to know everything – the history of the country and the city, which landmarks are worth visiting, which are the best restaurants and the most convenient hotels. It takes a lot of time, but I love the process! Knowing all this information I can experience the place to its fullest and know that I won’t miss anything interesting. You can find all this useful information gathered here, on my blog.

I created My Vacation Itineraries at the end of 2013. I wanted a space where I can share all my travel experiences, knowledge and my favourite places. I want to show you that you don’t need an agency to plan your dream vacation. You can do it all by yourself! I want to inspire you to travel more, to see the beauty of the world we are living in.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Have you guys been to Bhutan? If not how about making a trip to this beautiful Himalayan kingdom and know more about it. Rayna Samphel expeditions at your service to explore Bhutan

  5. Such a refreshingly written and designed blog! I’m a big fan of your itineraries – they’re rather fun to read, learn from and eminently helpful for my own itinerary planning!
