Winter in Pamporovo, Bulgaria

Pin It!
It's Winter Solstice today, the start of winter, the shortest day, the longest night so it would have been perfect if it snowed, even if it was just a little. It didn't snow and in fact it felt warmer than usual for this time of the year, 10 deg to be exact so there's no hope of having a white Christmas this year. 
However, it sure brought back memories of the times when I was surrounded by snow, snow and more snow!! One of the best was when i went on a snowboarding trip with my friends a couple of years back. Yes, i fell countless times in my very poor attempt to snowboard and was one of my most tiring holiday ever but i thoroughly enjoyed myself, met some great people and of course took in the wonderful scenery that will forever be treasured. 
Absolutely loved just sitting down in the snow, enjoying the beautiful feeling of being up in the mountains. The quietness, tranquillity and fresh air gave me a good opportunity to think and reflect. It's a great place to go to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. I would really love to make another trip to the mountains to enjoy it all once again maybe with a mug of hot chocolate in front of the fireplace?


  1. 10 degrees is quite warm for this time of the year. You never know, it may snow in a day or two, weather is unpredictable. Anyway, have a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2012, hope it brings you and your family lots of happiness, success and prosperity.

  2. Snow, snow, snow... as far as the eyes can see. :)

    Merry Christmas to you and family.

  3. Hi Sylvia, Merry Christmas to you & your family too. See, I got loads of catching to do. lol! Still trying to pick up ASAP. Gosh, what a nice post to share with us on this special season. Those scenery looks exactly like the one in Whakapapa Mountain in NZ. It was simply amazing. Something that I will never ever forget in my whole life. It looks even stunning during sun setting. The whole mountain turns pink.

  4. This year we are not having much rain, so the mountains have no snow!! It's usually a great ski season, but we haven't even planned on ski trip yet. Looking at the snow in pictures makes me wish to be there!

  5. What a beautiful place! I love snow. Perfect for relaxing.
