I grew up in Bulgaria, where we have snowy winter and real cold weather every year. I always suffered in the cold. So as soon as I could, I moved to sunny Barcelona. Later I became a nomad, and every year I escaped the European winter to a tropical paradise.

In the winter of 2020/2021, the pandemic made me stay in Europe. During that time, I visited my family in Bulgaria and got to experience real winter and snow for the first time in many years.

I can't say I enjoyed it. I'm very much a warm-sunny-weather person. Cold, gloomy weather makes me sad, and there's not much I can do about it.

Despite this, I had to appreciate how beautiful winter is. I was staying in my parents house, which is outside of the city, near a forest. Every day, I went on snow walks in this forest.

Here is a calm little video from my walks, and some photos.
