Travelling makes me the person I have always wanted to be!
I have a wide range of interests, from business, start-ups and management consulting (which are all related to my university course) to music, languages and science. However, visiting new places and exploring other cultures are the things that have formed part of my plans and dreams since I was a kid.

Valencia – The Perfect Place to Get Fit

Posted on 26 December 2016 by Simona Dundova

Sports activities are an important part of Spanish lifestyle. The climate makes it possible to practice anything from ice-skating, football to beach volley and surfing. We all know that food and celebrations are the essence of Mediterranean culture. However, when you come to Spain (or any other country in Southern Europe for that matter), you

The Trips Continue

Posted on 26 December 2016 by Simona Dundova

Alicante was my weekend get-away for last week. My flatmate, two other Italian friends and I caught the 9 am bus on Saturday morning and arrived at our destination in just over two hours. As it was raining, we entered one of the first bakeries we saw and we talked over a cup of coffee

Last weekend I went on a trip that I hadn’t really planned to do, but it turned out to be the best thing that has happened to me on Erasmus. Although it was raining most of the time, we managed to see some of the most famous and beautiful places in Andalusia (and Spain in

Posted on 1 December 2016 by Simona Dundova

I know it has been a while since my last post, but so many things are happening here in Valencia every day!!! I have barely had time to sit and write a few lines to my friends (both in Bulgaria and Cardiff), let alone sit undisturbed for an hour or so to write an article.
