Here are some pictures from my recent trips.
The Balkan mountains first. A friend got married in Arbanasi - a village close to Veliko Tarnovo. The celebrations lasted almost a week. A great wedding indeed.
The wedding present - magnolia grandiflora, which is already growing in the garden.
On our way back to Plovdiv we stopped to gather some herbs.
And a few days later another mountain trip. This time in the Rhodope Mountains - my favourite part of the country.
The house of my Grandmother's Grandmother now belongs to another family, and the new owners take good care of it.
I would walk any distance just to enjoy this view.
