I am incredibly lucky to live in Bulgaria. Here the summers last for four months. Here in the Balkans, unlike elsewhere in Europe, nature is untouched and consumerism does not govern people’s lives. Instead we prefer to enjoy the summer by being close to nature, relaxing and eating good food. At least I do. This summer I spent my weekends eating healthy organic meals and relaxing by the pool with a view of the Balkan mountains. Elsewhere this would be very expensive, but in Bulgaria we even take it for granted! It has been a fantastic summer, hot and sunny, just the way I like it. I could live only on sunshine!
