About me

Hello and Welcome to Minimal Mama Travels!

What I want you to know about me:

I am Vilina Christoph and I am on a major crossroad in my life right now.

My life is changing as I write these words.

For a long time I felt like I was living in a fog, at other times I felt like an observer of my life and that of others.

Often I felt I didn’t live my life but rather survived it.

That said, I’ve also been through massive personal transformation and I’m still working through certain blocks.

What you need to know about me:

The reason I started this website coincides with the fact that I’m heading off on a cross-continent journey through Europe. This was a spontaneous decision but one led by series of synchronicity events.

As far as the plan goes, on this stage of the journey I will cover the following countries: Ireland, UK, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, France, Spain and Portugal.

About the website:

I will be documenting my travels here – sharing insights, advice and tips during the journey. I will also be sharing personal stories of other places visited.

Some facts about me:

I am originally from Bulgaria but have spent my last eight and a half years living in Ireland. I am a mother of a beautiful boy and a partner to an Irish man. I am spiritual and feminine. I have been through some personal trauma and I am still healing. I am minimalist in my beliefs and values, and have been simplifying my life in the past year. I am a lifetime written word lover – I write and I translate. I volunteer to Translators Without Borders but wish to do more about other causes too.  I have been in Alaska in two consecutive summers. I love gardening and I am now taking on photography.
