Hello January, that month of grey weather which seemingly never ends. Where winter days roll on forever, and sunlight appears in fleeting moments. Well, this year, I had a plan to beat all that. I was heading to a new country, Bulgaria, to pick up a new hobby, skiing – and I was pretty pumped. Bansko is one of the most affordable Ski resorts in Europe, and it’s also ideal for all levels, including beginners.
I’ve always fancied the idea of skiing, but have been put off by the high-prices. Scuba Diving is already one of my greatest holiday hobbies, and although it isn’t exactly cheap either, I wasn’t keen to throw in another huge hobby expense to my winter in Europe travel list. Luckily, however, it does seem there are some relatively cheap places to learn to Ski, and Bansko had me convinced to give it a shot.
