These wonderful three Bulgarian peas in a pot came into our life through one of those moments when we yet again got lost on instagram looking through endless pics of people on holiday - their brekkie, lunches and dinners, still lives, nature shots and so on 😊. While dreamily drifting off here and there, slightly overloaded with images pouring into our mind... we were suddenly caught by a pic of three gorgeous "almost" identical girls exploring some cool and original spot somewhere Upstate New York. We quickly went to explore what "Triplet Approved" is about and were happy to find that it is right up our alley! Following their hunger for travel they brought into life their website as a collection of their experiences - a space where to reflect on past adventures, "slow life" places, conversations, visual impressions, and ideas that inspire them.

You seem to be travelling to many beautiful places. What has been your absolute highlight?
It’s tough to pick one… Different trips and experiences stand out for different reasons. We loved the end-of-the-world, hippy and carefree vibe of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. We’ve had crazy adventures meeting locals and camping in Puerto Rico. Last summer, we spent a fantastic weekend in a house in Arezzo, Italy (in Tuscany), eating homemade pasta and sampling bottle after bottle of amazing wine.

From your stories, we can tell you like it off the beaten track. Can you tell us some of your favourite hangouts in your current home town New York for our readers that like to stay far away from tourist crowds?
When a solid new spot pops up in New York, it’s hard for it to stay a secret too long – especially with the Internet and Instagram. We’d say that Bushwick is still a bit off the beaten path. You’ll find some restaurants and cool bars that are not overrun with crowds the way many places in Manhattan and Williamsburg are. We recently tried Ops Pizza
and The Sampler
(cool bar with a skater vibe) and loved them both. There’s also a restaurant called Carthage Must Be Destroyed
(dead serious) that serves the freshest and most delicious produce we’ve ever had in New York. Reminded us of our grandparents’ garden...

Where do you go to calm down from this busy city and get inspired?
We love doing quick getaways to Upstate New York. You’d be surprised how beautiful those parts of New York State are and how easily one can escape. We’ll rent a beautiful house in the woods, gather a group of friends and spend a relaxing weekend cooking, sitting by the fire and playing board games.

We love live music. Is there a cool bar in Brooklyn that you can recommend for good concerts?
One place we love is the bar FourFiveSix
in Brooklyn. They have amazing live jazz every Thursday. Their veggie lasagna is solid and their drinks are stiff!
You mentioned that you spent your childhood summers at your grandparents’ house in a Bulgarian mountain village. We have always wanted to go explore the nature of Bulgaria, do you have some tips on where to go?
When it comes to nature in Bulgaria, you really can’t go wrong. Bulgaria has stunning, diverse nature and a really long history, so there’s a lot to see there. Pirin is known as our most beautiful mountain, so we think it’s worth a visit. We’re also partial to Rhodope mountain and Kovachevica – the breath-taking village where our grandmother was born. We strongly recommend Melnik as well – a beautiful town in Pirin that’s peppered with cultural monuments.
