This story telling will be the first one of its kind from Nana, as she takes inspiration from her teacher Shonaleigh Cumbers, the last Drutsyla - a Jewish tradition bearer who carries 3000 oral stories from her grandmother, Edith Marks. A women's oral storytelling tradition which is thousands of years old.
Now Nana, with the permission and guidance of Shonaleigh is weaving old Bulgarian stories togetger to create a tapestry of tales, each strand connected to an other one. A new tradition is being formed.
'On the lowest fold of a seven folded heaven, there is a palace made entirely of gold.'
Walking Difficulty: Easy. There will be some walking, but no more than 1-2 km.
The walk needs minimum of 4 people to take place and maximum of 12.
