Leather women's bag, Boro bag - About the name.
This women's bag is named after an atypical journey - for me.
I have traveled a lot with my parents as a child, but the destinations were often in developing country areas and warm skies. None of us have had the urge to put on three layers of clothing, big boots and cumbersome equipment and therefore we have never been on a ski holiday before.
But in the winter of 2019, I could feel the curiosity creeping in on me. I actually wanted to try what “ski vacation” everyone was talking about.
Therefore, in one single day (yes, it was not that difficult), I persuaded my boyfriend that our Christmas present to each other should be a ski holiday to Borovets in Bulgaria. An untraditional destination for Danish ski enthusiasts and therefore a bit of a rate in our eyes. However, I had read really well about the area on several UK media and local websites. At the same time it was super cheap, so skiing was not something for us anyway, it would not be the whole big loss.
The ski area was called Borovets and was only an hour's drive from Bulgaria's capital and Sofia Airport.
When we landed and could not see the shadow of snow in Sofia, we were quite excited, to say the least, about how the ski facilities were. We were picked up by the hotel car and otherwise drove up towards Borovets. Just as quietly, the clouds began to show through the car windows, and when we again had a clear view, there was snow everywhere! So far so good.
We had three full days at Bulgaria's oldest ski resort. Borovets is a translation of "pine forest". The area was also characterized by the large beautiful trees - and several of the trails stretched through dense pine trees. It was so beautiful.
The highest point "Musala Peak" is 2925 meters, and is Europe's 6th largest mountain.
We started on the smaller hills, but quickly caught the concept and literally threw ourselves down the larger mountains - or so I did. Despite a few crashes, it was a really fun, challenging and not least a physically demanding experience. The area offered both beginner hills and condos all the way up to the main mountains. It was absolutely amazing!
This women's bag is named after Borovets
I definitely think we are going on a ski holiday again, maybe not every year, but we should try it again.
Most of my bags are named after hot areas, but I think this bag has a perfect look to be named after a cold area, so it became the beautiful Borovets.
