2016 – The year in pictures

by Peter Todorov

33 walks, 5 countries, 5 peaks and over 300 km ran in 2016. See clearly what I mean:

That’s how our year started. This picture is from our 3rd meeting. We had to go to Vitosha mountain to test who’s better at hiking!

Only for a day we managed to climb up to Botev peak from Panitsite in Tarzan path and got back on the same route.

When someone looks at the pictures of our Holiday in Albania will say that we’ve spent a good time.

Sunset in Albania

The good thing about the Albanian coast is that there are sunsets.

Stunning sunset

There were even sunbeds probably managed by foreigners.

Last day on the Albanian territory while photographing the sunset I shot a marriage proposal :)

Back home again. A Beautiful view is from the Malyovitsa peak to Urdin circus.

The vast mountains

От толкова много планини решихме да си починем малко и се озовахме на палатка на плаж Иракли. Уникално усещане да запалиш огън на брега под звездите и да не виждаш хора наоколо.

After the mountains, we decided to relax a bit and found ourselves in a tent on the beach of Irakli. A unique feeling to light a fire under the stars.

Milkey is way above us

The feeling to be alone without other people on the beach at sunrise.

Waiting for the Sunrise, Irakli beach

Who said that the sun is not coming from the water?


Sunrise in the Bulgarian coast

After Irakli, we needed a bit of civilization and descended to Sozopol. Of course, there was no way to miss the breezy sunrise from the beach.

While we turn around entire calendar year has gone. This year we decided to focus on a slightly different tourism driven by „Guide to the Bulgarian Waterfalls“ by Ivo Nikolov. In short, we want to visit about 60 waterfalls.

Don’t forget that wishes come true! Dream big and make your life unforgettable!
