Reasons why you should go to Bulgaria. And why we always come back to Bulgaria: We love the country, the outdoors, the skiing, the hiking, the people, the food, the history, the culture, and for digital nomads and budget travellers Bulgaria is a cheap and cheerful place to be based at.
We met Beki last year at one of her regular Digital Wombats meet-ups when we based ourselves in Chiang Mai in Thailand in 2019 for a little while before moving onto Koh Phangan. We had the pleasure of catching up with Beki in person again before we left Thailand in December. Beki is a fellow multipassionate multipotentialite juggling many different projects at any one time! When she isn’t working she can be found running events for digital nomads, playing with her cats, exploring Thailand (the pandemic has also impacted her on this too) or wakeboarding.
As we return to our interview series we interview Alice, a vegan content writer and public health scientist. Like me, her nomad adventures have been paused this year due to the pandemic. Alice tells us how since going plant-based in 2015, she and her sister has made it their mission to discover the best food, travel destinations, sustainable fashion, and experiences available for vegans. Alongside this, Alice and her sister Lucy work together to use businesses as forces for good to promote a more vegan and sustainable world.
One of the ways we travel around the world is by housesitting. We look after people’s homes and pets while they are away. We deliberately choose homes with pets because we love spending time with animals! I can hear some of you asking out loud right now, “What exactly is house sitting?”
This is our third time returning to Sofia. Last time we were here in 2018 we were only here for two weeks and we mostly worked from home or from cafes. Some days we work from “home”, some days we go to a coworking space and others we work from cafes. We found ourselves coworking in Sofia regularly. So where can you co-work from in Sofia?
I always find the first two weeks of arriving anywhere to be a time of feeling unsettled. Even if we’ve been there before. It usually takes that two weeks of time to form out routines again, feel out our favourite spots, find our rhythm in the area (sometimes all over again).
