Petya was born in Bulgaria, but has lived in Germany since 2004. But it wasn't until she turned 30 that she first set foot in a bouldering gym. Soon after, the hobby turned into a passion and the passion into a lifestyle. Since 2020, Petya has been on the road with a custom-built van, her climbing partner, and two crag dogs, simply exploring the bouldering areas of Europe. Before climbing, she filled her spare time with writing, and now she does both.
