Kopitoto 2021

Pictures from our leisurely hike this Sunday from Zlatnite mostove to peak Kopitoto and back through Momina skala to Zlatnite. This is a very easy 8 km circular route on Vitosha and at this time of the year it is very green, fresh and relaxing.

On Sunday morning husband, Gaby and I had our second Moderna jab and since the instructions were not to overexercise ourselves, Gaby stayed in town and husband and I chose an easy walk on Vitosha before returning home for a lazy afternoon rest.

Later that day and on the following days husband felt best of us all, almost without any complaints but a pain in the arm and some tiredness. In the evening Gaby had fever with high temperature, took some paracetamol and was better on the following day, but very tired. I was a bit worse, with very high fever (39C) all night and the following day, despite the paracetamol, so I slept through most of Monday, alternating between feeling very cold and sweating profusely. I was better on Tuesday, when my temperature was finally back to normal and was able gradually to recover my energy. However, despite the unpleasant averse effects of the vaccine, it was nothing compared to being really sick, with the heavy cough, sore throat and runny nose and all the other features of viral illnesses.
