I'm back 😊. I've had several stressful and busy weeks and while I did find some time to go for walks or drives and do have a lot of photos, Instagram has not exactly been a priority. But I'm really eager to share a place I discovered last week. Close to Varna, there's a rock formation called Pobiti kamani, usually translated as The Stone Forest in English. I'd say it is rather popular, although I, for one, have only been there once. What not many people realize, though, is that the location everyone goes to and photographs, is only its most popular spots, but there are many more - 17!!! locations of the same type. They are all different, some are very small, and definitely not as spectacular. However, last week, a friend asked me if I was interested in going to one of them - surprise, surprise, I was 😉. I had only passed by by bus once so I knew what she was talking about. Honestly, I was fascinated. I'll save the vertical shot for some other time with the huge rocks, but trust me, they really are tall 😂. What I really loved, was how alien the area looks - while it is surrounded by forest, föds and a village, it still has desert-y feeling. If you look it up on Wikipedia, there's even a claim that it is one of only few European naturally formed deserts, even. It feels like a mix of a dune, and steppes, and... I simply loved it, really. The plants are endemic to the biome and the yellow-purple contrast they create is just so cool, even eerie. Really, guys, if you're in the area, stop by. You won't regret it ❤️.
