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!

Home Sweet Home

Waiting for Vatican Scavi tour

Vince and I are back from a fabulous 2 weeks in the Mediterranean.

Sun (mostly). Sea. Incredible destinations. Cuddle time watching movies…It was magical.

While I needed (and enjoyed) an extended break from technology and the goings-on in the world, I am happy to have internet access back.

I have SO much to share with you all.

Final photo count between our 3 cameras is about 4000. Thank heavens for digital. **AmIright?!**

I have them all uploaded onto my hard drive but can’t even contemplate how long it will take to upload the best to Flickr and Facebook.

Colorful Santorini

BUT IT WILL GET DONE…Eventually. Never fear!

We arrived back in Sofia around 3pm this afternoon and after taking a taxi home to drop off our suitcases we headed back out to get groceries.

70 Leva later and our kitchen is stocked. I even found pistachio ice cream (more on my recent addiction to pistachio gelato to come).

Suitcases are unpacked. Laundry is done/drying.

Aw. It’s good to be home.

Crashing waves in Dubrovnik

Lots of posts to come!

(Hope you liked the photo sneak-peek!)
