Baylovo 2024

I've been too busy these days with work and some traveling and I've been neglecting my blog.

A short reportage from our hike at the end of February in the grounds of the village of Baylovo, to Spasova mogila, Golema Rakovitza and back.

The day was absolutely glorious, sunny and warm, we couldn't have asked for better weather in February.

A bit unusual, the trail was dry and very pleasant to walk. This time of the year it might be muddy, but we've enjoyed dry and warm winter (not sure about the crops :).

Hike info:

Destination: St Spas Chapel
Mountain: Spasova Mogila
Total length: 11.6 km
Elevation gain: 80 m
Total duration (plus rest): 3 h
Average difficulty: 2 / 10 

We had a long and leisurely picnic on the hill by the chapel. I love the view from Spasova mogila, so peaceful and pastoral. It was very quiet, with only the birds chirping in the small pine grove, really idyllic :)

Me-made items, worn on this hike:

Husband: men's boxers, knitted socks, Knipmode Cargo pants
I:  lingerie, socks, Burda Raglan blouse, Houndstooth Hoodie, legwarmers

After our lunch, we went downhill to the next village - Golema Rakovitza and from there returned along the narrow road to Baylovo.

On the way back we took an alternative route and stopped to enjoy the waters of Ognyanovo reservoir. Baylovo is a bit far from home and the trail is fairly short and super easy, but the pleasure it gives is definitely worth the travel!
