Simeon Dimitrov
English Market Product Manager

"I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move." Robert Louis Stevenson. I believe that as creature of the nature movement is essential for our mental and physical existence; therefore I’m totally addicted to mountain bikes, slack lines, vertical walls, fast water and snowy hills. Wherever I travel I’m enriching myself through the culture and nature of the place where I am and, moreover, this is the reason why I have chosen to graduate and work in the sphere of tourism.
In Odysseia - In I’m taking care of the English speaking partners, but I’m also a certified cultural and mountain guide, so I’m looking forward to raise the Bulgarian curtain for you.
