Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

…Lately…

Hey all!

I’m alive! I survived an especially awful trip back to the U.S. in {mostly} one piece.

I hate airports and flying more and more each time I travel. The Delta terminal at JFK is as disgusting as ever. I had an overnight layover there and it was a long night, to say the least. Thankfully, I haven’t had much jet lag this time around – I always find it easier to adjust when returning to the states.

After a big to-do over my second suitcase with Polish Airlines at the airport in Sofia, I decided to leave ALL of my clothing in Bulgaria to avoid paying their ridiculous €150 fee. Luckily, I still had some clothes at my mom’s house, so I am not entirely desperate! Vince will be bringing my things over with him when he comes over next month.Happy to be home with my favorite little lady. #firstinstagram #cousins #rockingthesouvenirvenetianmask

It’s been a whirlwind of family and friend time (especially with my little lady), shopping, and sleeping since I got home on Friday morning. Yesterday I went to the Mummies of the World Exhibit in Salt Lake with my family and a friend. It was awesome! I love mummies!

Mummies rock! #mummiesexhibition #historynerd

My biggest time suck (and reason I have been neglecting this here blog) is my new iPhone 5! Yep. I finally took the plunge into the world of smartphones and joined the Apple masses. So far…I LOVE IT! I bought one for Vince as well and as much as he wouldn’t like to admit it, he’s excited as well. As you all probably know, I am a photography freak, so having a phone with a nice camera and access to apps like Instagram is awesome! Oh, and don’t even get me started on my growing obsession with the game Hay Day (shameless plug, if you play the game, add me as a friend: WhitneyPBG); who knew I would be into farming?! 😉

On that note, if you’d like to follow me on Instagram my name is whitneydimova.Out the window. #viewfromhere #Murray #almostspring

Hope you are all doing well! Talk to you soon!

  1. JFK is just…UGH! Your mob of angry Jews comment totally gave me a chuckle. Glad you and Zac eventually made it out of there.

  2. Sorry I’ve been so behind on my blog readings! I have to agree, my single worst flying experience happened in the international Delta terminal at JFK. Besides being a total ZOO (I have never seen such lines in any other terminal!) our flight to Israel kept being delayed until it was finally canceled. I pitied the Delta people for a second, you don’t want a mob of angry Jews on your hands. To avoid the craziness Zac and I left the terminal, but then they wouldn’t let us back in! We found a customer service guy who was happy to deal with us because we were the nicest customers of the night and put us up in a Quality Inn in Queens. Later we found out that most of the other passengers who weren’t from the area were put up in seedy places by the airport, so I guess we got lucky!

    And yeah, mummies are pretty cool. 🙂
