We started our blogging journey at the beginning of 2018. Yet it wasn’t before spring of the same year that we actually took it seriously. Blogging for us is a brand new and fascinating world unfolding right before our very eyes. However, this world holds neither success nor joy for those who choose to tread a lonely path. The essence and the beauty of blogging lie in that magic moment when you get to meet all those people you’ve never met before in your life but share with them the same passions, dreams, fears and doubts. That’s why we couldn’t wait to attend our first bloggers’ event at some point. It wasn’t long before we did. The Bloggers On Top 2018 Unconference held in Bansko couldn’t have come at a better time.
Bulgaria’s proximity to Greece makes it an ideal destination for short or even longer trips from our country. Bansko, in particular, is very popular with Greeks. Especially those living in Northern Greece. For the latter it’s approximately a 3-hour drive to Bulgaria’s top ski resort. However, that’s not the case for people living in Central or Southern Greece. For us, driving to Bansko from Athens, apart from being quite tiring, is also expensive. Fuel and road tolls cost way more than catching a Ryanair or Wizz Air flight to Sofia. So when the opportunity arose for us to visit Bansko in order to attend the Bloggers On Top 2018 Unconference, we booked our cheap flights to the Bulgarian capital and then all we had to figure out was how to get from Sofia to Bansko.
