Hi there! My name is Lyubomira, also known as Bulgarian On The Go.

 

As my blog name suggests, I come from a small Eastern European country, called Bulgaria. I was born and raised here, but in 2015 I decided to move to Vienna, Austria to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Communication science. After experience the shock of moving countries, getting used to a new culture and being away from my family, I finally got my degree in 2019.

In 2020 I felt the need to follow my heart and moved back to Bulgaria. I am currently studying Tourism at the Sofia University while working full-time in marketing and building this blog on the side.

I started travelling regularly when I was 16 years old. Thanks to a European exchange program called Erasmus Plus, I had the opportunity to go to quite a few places including Germany, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Cyprus and Latvia. After my high school years I knew I wanted to continue exploring the world, so I decided to move to a whole new country completely by myself: Austria. During my time there I was working several jobs at once while trying to keep up with my studies – all of that for the sole purpose of being able to afford to travel. To this day I continue looking for good travel deals and new places I want to explore.

To date, I’ve travelled to over 25 destinations and counting, and I am more than excited to be able to combine my passion for travel, photography, and my background in journalism and communications, to bring new useful and inspiring content to my blog that you will enjoy.

Some of the most interesting places I have ever been to include a trip with my best friend to Thailand in 2017, exploring Luxembourg in 2019, visiting beautiful Israel in 2020 and more.

I had been wanting to start a blog for years, and I finally got the courage to do so in August 2018. My goal is to use this platform to share all of my practical tips and tricks with you, to tell you about places you might have never thought of visiting, and most importantly – inspire you to go out there and see the world, because nothing makes you richer than travelling.

My biggest wish is to inspire people to visit more underrated destinations – hidden gems that are still undiscovered by most tourists. This is why on this blog you will find articles about places you have never heard of. Overtourism is a massive issue in a lot of places, so drawing the attention to not-so-famous destinations is one of my greatest goals.
