Tales from the Upper and Lower Lands

This time, Izabela Shopova describes her fabulous travels around the world, which she hasn't stopped crossing for decades. Together with her daughter Boyana, whom she lovingly refers to as "the teenager" and "forever hungry teenager", she travels around the Upper land - Russia since 2009 with its insane bureaucracy and the beauty of its Moscow churches, the Celestial Empire - here is Hong Kong and the communist Chinese "paradise", the liberal Lowland where a mother and daughter make a failed drug experiment...

Ten years later, we see them in Chernobyl, about which Izabela writes a harrowing travelogue.

In 2015, she crossed the Lower Land - Buenos Aires with its football, tango and picturesque streets, the super bottom of Argentina and the planet, Ushuaia, to then cross the southern island lands of New Caledonia, Rotorua, Vanuatu, Noumea, Mare... Before to return to Brisbane and in time and tell us about her Australia and its lessons in happiness.

All this is written with Izabela's typical inimitable sense of humor, with her linguistic and stylistic inventions, colorful descriptions, incredible wealth of vocabulary. Minutes of real pleasure await her readers - both those who already know and appreciate her, and those who will reach for her book for the first time.

About the Author
Izabela  Shopova

Izabela Shopova (born 1971 in Varna) is a Bulgarian writer, now living and writing in Australia.

A child prodigy, she learned to read at age of 4, graduated from high school at 15, played piano and dreamed of conquering space. She was a professional model and an amateur astronomer; worked in a radio station but never planned to write on her own... She graduated from the local technical university, with major in radio engineering and then stepped in a completely different direction by establishing a career in business.

In 2002 she moved to New Zealand together with her husband and daughter. She wrote her first letter from the “Land of the Long White Cloud”, which became an instant hit back in Bulgaria. It was published by numerous websites, newspapers and travel magazines. She went on writing about first hand experiences and second hand memories, thus bringing together parallel cultures and histories… Some of her travelogues won awards in travel writing./ide.li; okolosveta.com/ Gradually, much to her own surprise, she emerged as a professional writer. She put together a collection of her writings – a fascinating amalgam of episodes from the everyday life of an immigrant and the amazing adventures of a tourist… Her first published book “East - in Eden” surpassed the success of her Internet publications and gave the readers a legitimate reason to call her “The Bulgarian Bill Bryson”.

Izabela Shopova lives now in Brisbane, Australia; she still writes for the electronic media and Bulgarian travel magazines and works on her second book about her family adventures in Aussie-Land.
