We introduce you to some fun facts about us (you probably didn’t know/you know too well and you’re sick of them already)!

Travelers’ romance – on a night like the one in the photo we decided to share some interesting facts about the founders of this website The Magic of Traveling.
  • We love to collect cool moments when we travel – so far 57 745 and counting. Always looking to see what’s beautiful and good is not only the way we travel but also the way we live. We are ready to support everyone who wants to attract positive emotions and people.
  • We have been volunteering in India (Nace helped a law consulting firm), China (Bistra helped a youth development foundation), and Belarus (Bistra taught English at a summer camp). Both of us had the opportunity to work with developing markets and extremely professional and dedicated people and to support social entrepreneurs in their missions. Bistra had participated in a few Erasmus+ projects.
  • We believe every traveler is an ambassador of the place they come from, their country, their region, town, or village – intentionally or not. Travelers build the image of countries, institutions, beliefs, all the people involved in their dreams, and all the values they stand for.
  • You can talk to us in 9 languages – Bulgarian, Macedonian, Serbian, English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, and Greek. Communication (verbal or not) is extremely important for us as we always aim to connect with people we meet. Being able to quickly make friends is changing our philosophy towards life and helps us grow as personalities.
  • We love dancing, teaching dance, and experimenting with traditional outfits and folklore dance. If you see happy faces with odd costumes moving in an unconventional/scary style – come and say hi to us!
  • We love wine. We are also amateur sommeliers. We have a passion for wine festivals, hidden wineries, and romantic vineyards everywhere around the globe. We never use the spit bucket with good samples!
  • So far we have planned and organized our trips on our own. Once we decided to use a travel agency for flight tickets and hotels in Santorini. It went bankrupt a couple of days before our planned departure. We never lose heart so we hit the road to Albania, Montenegro, and Macedonia. After stories like this, we really hope for more positive experiences with travel agencies to shout about. We believe modern tour agencies can offer high-quality and innovative products and services to their customers if they work with cool travel bloggers like us.
  • We both have written a few poems when we were children. Someday we should resume this activity. For now, we are more into writing prose.

  • Information usually reaches us via our phones and computers. We rely on our friends and the Internet to be aware of what’s going on here and there. We don’t have a TV set. We try not to possess things, but experiences. Stuff that doesn’t fit a suitcase or a backpack is a no-go for us.
  • We have funded our travels ourselves so far. Sometimes we work with destinations, travel-related businesses, and experiences, tourism boards. Sometimes we team up with artists, bloggers, journalists, and tourism professionals to create value. We are willing to work with anyone who believes together we can create something good for the people and the planet. You can read our travel manifesto here.
  • Our favorite question is “How do you manage to have so much time for traveling?”. Time is never enough, therefore, we highly appreciate your suggestions on how to maximize the time we have(usually everybody has 24 hours per day) to travel. We share any insight, tips and tricks, and advice especially when we do something nice for a limited amount of time or make the most out of our time somewhere.
  • We have had health issues and/or tested the hospitals and healthcare in 9 countries – Greece, Chile, India, Spain (2 times, actually), Turkey, China, Indonesia, Argentina, and on a cruise ship passing the Gibraltar strait. We didn’t leave those mishaps to ruin our experience and the magic of traveling! 🙂
  • We want to contribute to a better world by working towards access to quality education for people on local, national and international levels. So, to tackle that topic, together with like-minded people, we founded Zarika Association.
