Holy moly, what a year it has been! As 2017 is passing by, I would normally say that the year has passed by in the blink of an eye – but not this year. This year I have been “blinking” a lot. When it comes to travelling, 2016 was really good to me, but 2017 was even better! I managed to top the 43.339 travelled kilometers from the last year with 60.797 km in 2017, full of memories and endless emotions!
The quick summary of 2017: I got 30 years old, visited 6 new countries, had my first influencer “turbo-action” week with my blog LillaGreen in Zillertal, quit my (for a long time detested) job and daunting social environment, kept myself away from negative people, became a better minimalist, started a further education, got a new way much more exciting job, took my (!) presence in my hands, waged more and wailed less, worked on my personal development. Hell, the year of 2017 was way too long but I’m proud of myself that I did it!
I hope that 2018 will be at least as good as 2017 when it comes to travelling, and much more easy and chilled from a professional aspect. I have some big visions and I’m ready to work on them in 2018. LillaGreen is part of them 🙂

If I had to choose only one word to describe Malaysia it will be “diversity”. I’ve never been to a country that spreads such a great cultural liberalism and variety! In March 2017 I spent some wonderful 3 weeks in West Malaysia. The time was enough to experience the amazing diversity of this country when it comes to culture, religion, nature, sightseeing and the local cuisine! Malaysia is the exotic dream because of its amazing “Always Summer” climate too! …

Welcome to my home city and one of the oldest capitals in Europe – Sofia! The history of the capital dates back ca 7000 years and it has been a long and (for sure) not an easy way for Sofia to become and remain as European capital from the beginning to what it is and how it looks like nowadays. Sofia, as the city where the Middle East and Asia meet Central and Western Europe, has one of the probably most …

Oh Venice, where do I start? Let’s start with July 1997, 20 years and a “few-wrinkles-less” ago, I visited Venice for the first time with my mother and aunt. To be honest, the only thing I can remember was the burning heat, millions of tourists, some disgusting stench from the canals and fish-market, as well as the best vanilla ice cream I got before leaving the city…
