Sofia, Bulgaria in Pictures

I had a wonderful trip to Sofia, Bulgaria last week. I went there to work with my team, HR @ Automattic, which we call The Human League. What made the trip really great was having a local on our team. Petya planned everything for us!


I drank a Heineken and the Sweet Water on the flight from Detroit to Amsterdam.

I tried to stick to Bulgarian beers once I got there.


Other than spending time with my teammates, my favorite part of the trip by far was the food. I was impressed. Took advantage of trying some things I’ve never seen on a menu.

Bacon mac & cheese and grilled chicken avocado sandwich at DTW.

Bone Marrow – YUM!
Chicken Hearts
Wild Boar
Bircher Muesli – I ate this with breakfast every morning. Excellent.
Snails in mini bread bowls
Roasted Pidgeon and sides

Stuff to See

Going to Bulgaria

Heading to Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, for a team meetup. It’ll beat out Budapest, Hungary as the farthest east I’ve traveled.

There is a 7 hour time difference from the Eastern time zone, so it’ll be interesting to see how jet lag affects me. Since it’s a +1 day trip, I won’t be going to bed (maybe a nap or two on the flight across the pond) until Wednesday night local time. Usually staying up through the travel night and all of the next day helps to reset my internal clock.
