What to do in Sofia

What to do in Sofia

So far, I have really struggled to write “what to do in X” posts. Sure, I have done plenty of things on my trips – visited museums, tried restaurants, beach-hopped – but writing about them in listicle format is always a challenge for me. I feel I am at my best when I’m writing about a more specific subject. I mean, I wrote over a thousand words about a single cathedral in Prague. I just posted another thousand-word blog about…

Pitsinna Tavern, Bansko, Bulgaria

Pitsinna Tavern, Bansko, Bulgaria

As I mentioned in one of the first blogs on this site, Jake and I are committed to eating in local places that serve food from the cuisine of the country we’re in. There is very little more annoying from a travel perspective than eating a overpriced crappy pizza instead of delicious local food because you didn’t start looking for a restaurant until you and your travel companions were already murderously hungry.

Nutritional wisdom tells us that colour is important when it comes to food. If in doubt, make sure there’s a rainbow on your plate. Polish food ignores this advice to the highest degree. But, as I can confirm from my trip there last week, there are a lot of people alive and well in at least two major Polish cities. So, uh, screw science and pass me some dough. (Not money. Like, actual dough. You can’t eat money, duh). Almost…

Trdelnik: a treat just for tourists (feat. judgemental pigeon)

Trdelnik: a treat just for tourists (feat. judgemental pigeon)

I love when people pick an ordinary thing and make a habit of doing it in every new place they go. Iona buys a bra. Her dad gets a local shave. I was thinking my thing could be ‘eat something baked and delicious’. In the name of exploration, of course. My baked good of choice for Prague was the Trdelnik. A delicious chimney of sweet dough covered in cinnamon sugar and filled with any number of delicious, creamy fillings. This…
