I'm Todor and I've been the kashkaval tourist since March 2014. For almost five years now, I've been blogging in English about tourism and travel in Bulgaria and the Balkans. Through my articles, I've helped you discover the region's hidden gems, the fascinating Balkan culture, the flavours of Bulgarian cuisine and the most awe-inspiring historical and natural sites around. And all this in a fun, easily-digestible list format, peppered with some unmistakable kashkaval tourist humour.

Maintaining kashkaval tourist has been no easy task, especially with a full-time job in the mix. Alone the writing phase for a single article takes practically a full working day, not counting the research, photography, editing and publishing stages. Through the years, kashkaval tourist has been basically a one-man show and an entirely volunteer effort, fuelled by my passion for Bulgaria and the Balkans. However, I've found it increasingly hard to contribute regularly and I've often been struggling for time and motivation. To keep going, now I need your help!

Become a patron by pledging as little as 1$ per article or get some awesome benefits (like a kashkaval tourist certificate, a letter full of goodies or a personal Sofia tour!) by pledging more. 😇🙏
