Those buildings in Bratislava... Can you spot me? 🐜😅💕
Btw, guess, who booked the next destination? 🙀 It's for my 30th birthday and I could not be happier with this 5 days getaway to... #wheretonext ? 💃🏻🍸
Hint: It's an arabic capital in Western Asia and one of the oldest cities in the world. Very vibrant city, the Middle East's party capital.. 🥳
Where do you think I will spend the end of my twenties and celebrate going into a new decade of my life? 3️⃣0️⃣🥰♥️
Let the countdown to November 18th begin 🌜🌺 ...
The Belogradchik Fortress is situated among the Belogradchik Rocks, on the northern slope of the Balkan Mountains. ⛰
It is dating back to Roman times and has such an incredible role for the Balkan history. A Bulgarian cultural monument of national importance.🇧🇬
📖 Some Wikipedia facts and numbers:
The fortress's walls are over 2 metres (6.6 ft) thick in the foundation and reaching up to 12 m (39 ft) in height. Three separate fortified yards exist that are connected with each other through gates. The fortress has a total area of 10,210 square metres (109,900 sq ft). The rock formations in the area served as a natural protection, as fortified walls were practically only built from the northwest and southeast, with the yard being surrounded by rocks up to 70 m (230 ft) high from the other sides.
Initially, the Belogradchik Fortress served for surveillance and not strictly defense.
So I’ve been revisiting some old shots to try new edits or crops, but what I’ve found is better than new shots, It’s reliving the moment when I clicked the shutter once again.
This one was shot overlooking Wanaka on my first trip to NZ, and I’d just stepped out of a helicopter for the first time. Hands were freezing as the wind cut right through the gloves, a few moments later the sun reached over the mountain tops and I welcomed it like never before.
