A day in San Francisco is such a treat for the senses. Today we walked for about 8 hours straight, climbing to the top of the Coit Tower, strolling under China Town’s red lanterns, ascending hills and frolicking through hike trails on the way to Baker beach and a whole lot more. What fascinated me about the city is how quickly climate changes; from warm to muggy, chilly, rainy, sunny – all within a single day.
I moved across the ocean from Bulgaria to the US at age 16, alone, in pursuit of my studies. Since then, I have graduated from college in Connecticut, lived in Spain, traveled across Europe, met some extraordinary individuals, redefining the conventional understanding of "family," and learned how to live more meaningfully. A passionate student of Plato and Heidegger, I see travel as the ultimate guide to self-knowledge and reflection upon one's purpose. I strive to immerse myself deeply into foreign environments and hopefully learn how to cook a few local delicacies. A thrill-seeker of what Immanuel Kant calls the "sublime," namely breathtaking natural landscapes, I try to immortalize them with my little Cannon camera. The pursuit of philosophical epiphanies and gastronomical indulgence is deeply embedded in my adventures.I just lost my crazy, overwhelming corporate job and am job hunting and diving into my writing. Here or abroad - bring it on!
