Meet Simana Markovska

Simana Markovska

Simana is a passionate storyteller. You may find her as Manya the Tourist in her travel blog where she writes about fun travel experiences and interesting destinations. Which, if you ask her, is the whole world; she claims that in every place, there's always something interesting to find. Simana is a certified heriage interpreter and a licensed tour guide. She has over 20 years of experience as a sustainable tourism expert in Bulgaria so you can probably trust her when she says there are few people to know her beloved country better than her. Especially the southwest corner where she lives and where she's willing to take you.

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Blagoevgrad with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
