Blessed in Bulgaria

Chapter Eight Comes to an End

500 days of summer

Location: Bulgaria

Bulgaria – Wow. Entirely unexpected and everything I want in the Grand Adventure; sun, sand, sea, mountains, rivers, lakes, history, food, wine and friendly peeps.

All of this wrapped up in an easy to navigate and incredibly inexpensive little country. 

Bulgaria is da BOMB. I would come back in a heartbeat.

But where are all the Americans?  Helllllooooo? We spent 30 days here and we met two Americans (on our second day).  Seriously  YOU GOTTA COME

People still imagine it as a communist country assuming gloomy grey sad people waiting in line for bread.  Not even.  Bulgarians are lively, smiling (and well fed) with a proud entrepreneurial spirit.  Infrastructure is pretty good, a new subway is open in the capital, most people speak a bit of English and Bulgarians have put their communism days behind them (although crumbling abandoned buildings and former factories are a constant reminder of those days) and are heading fast and furious into their future.  

Tourism is going to grow. ¬†It can’t be helped. I’m so glad we decided to come here. ¬†Feeling Blessed in Bulgaria. A very special place.

Chapter Eight now comes to an end.  Today marks seven months on our Grand Adventure  and time to move on. Thanks for a lovely visit, Bulgaria and for introducing us to another Balkan state! We are so glad we came.  We have been very Blessed in Bulgaria.

Next up Chapter Nine – Croatia/Montenegro/Slovenia.
