  • Bulgarian CultureI got up relatively early. It was after the sun was out, but before pretty much everyone else in the room. It was maybe 7ish when I left and not a lot of anything was open. I was able to Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | May 22, 2015
  • SofiaI landed at terminal 1 of the Sofia airport, and felt like I was landing in St. Kitts more than a big European city because the airport was so small. Then, when I asked where the metro station was (terminal Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | May 21, 2015
  • Rila MonasteryI left the hostel and went in search of breakfast, but it was still too early for the street stands of bakeries to be open. I was so hungry, I even noticed that McDonalds, Burger King, and Dunkin were even Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | May 23, 2015
  • СофияAfter leaving Ohrid on Thursday, I made my way to Sofia via Skopje. The bus to Skopje was easy enough, however the bordercrossing between Macedonia and Bulgaria took a fair bit of time. Since you are entering the European Union, Posted by reinder.prins in Athens to Australia, the scenic route | Dec 5, 2010
  • Speaking WongolianNavigating through a foreign country where you don't speak the local language isn't so bad, as long as you can speak a little Wongolian. What exactly is Wongolian, you ask? Well ... it's not a language you can Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Aug 4, 2011
  • Bohemian RhapsodyThe Black Sea ... I've been here four days but aside from Nesebar, I'm just not really feeling it. Even the hostel I'm staying at - the owner is super cool and helpful, and overall it has a nice Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Jul 31, 2011
  • Back to BlackAmy Winehouse ... what can you say? She passed away early on during this trip, which was shocking in a way but sadly, was almost expected, given her lifestyle and history. Her death, and the manner in which Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Aug 1, 2011
  • Backpacker HeavenIt's easy to see why Veliko Tarnovo has long been a backpacker haven - other than Tsarevets fortress, there aren't any must-see sights but there are tons of day trip options from here with cliff diving, hiking, monasteries, and swimming Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Aug 2, 2011
  • UFOs and Shopping MallsA big reason for spending three nights in Veliko Tarnovo was to visit what I considered a must-see attraction - the UFO Monument atop Mount Buzludzha<b></b>, not on the radar of most tourists passing through here, but I was made Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Aug 3, 2011
  • CoolPlovdiv is cool - beautiful architecture and neat little ruins in the old town, lively pedestrian zone always buzzing with people, museums and art galleries for those that are so inclined, nicely-located cafes all over the place ... but ... Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Jul 26, 2011
  • BritcomBritish humour - famed for being dry and witty, it's not for everybody. Personally speaking, I've watched a few British sitcoms over the years and have enjoyed them. Today, I got to live through a real-life episode, starring Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Jul 27, 2011
  • Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda ...If Vegas Vic, the famous Las Vegas neon cowboy ... Were to take Minnie Mouse to the Playboy Mansion and hook up with her ... And then Lenin came by ... And took a shit all over their Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Jul 28, 2011
  • Flip a CoinThe decision to come to Bulgaria was an extremely difficult one - not because it isn't a worthwhile choice, but because there were simply too many tempting choices. Planning a trip is never easy, especially when there are so Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Jul 29, 2011
  • Wino ForeverA bit of Varna trivia - the movie Bram Stoker's Dracula referenced Varna, as the port from where Dracula would set sail, bound for England and in search of Mina Harker, the character played by Winona Ryder. During the Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Jul 30, 2011
  • Beautifully UglyOxymoronic, but I cannot think of a more apt description for Sofia. It's a city in transition, rough around the edges, an exciting but curious melange of former Eastern Bloc relics and modern Western European sensibilities. Beautiful?

  • ComatoseKoprivshtitsa - the name of the next town on the itinerary. I'll buy a beer for anybody that can pronounce it correctly! The Cyrillic alphabet definitely poses a challenge, but the Western alphabet translations are actually Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Jul 23, 2011
  • Da, Da, Da ...Had what seemed like a very Bulgarian experience today - a bucolic drive through the Valley of the Roses, the centre of Bulgaria's rose-producing industry, where they are grown and then turned into a variety of products. Brandy, creams, Posted by vagabondvoyager in Back to the Balkans: Bulgaria | Jul 25, 2011
  • The Seven Rila LakesFull of energy and anticipation we gathered our group of fourteen at the center of Bistriza village. Kids were excited to ride in each other's cars. Driving towards Rila mountain we first crossed the foothills of Vitosha mountain passing by Posted by Brufamily in Bru Adventures | Sep 2, 2017
  • Bucharest to BudapestThis morning we traversed the Iron Gate 2 double lock and entered the Iron Gate Gorge. Iron Gate, Romanian Porţile de Fier, Serbo-Croatian Gvozdena Vrata, the last gorge of the Ðerdap gorge system on the Danube River, dividing the Carpathian Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC, VTA, LCS, MBA | Aug 18, 2017
  • Bucharest to BudapestThis morning we moved across the river from Romania to Ruse, Bulgaria. As we were not inclined for another 8 hour tour, we rested on the ship and walked around the town. Scholars suggest that the city on the Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC, VTA, LCS, MBA | Aug 17, 2017
  • CommunityTwo events during this past week made me realize how a community is gradually created, continuously fostered and should be celebrated: the Thracian Cliffs owners invitational golf tournament and a themed evening, both of which have become a tradition for Posted by Brufamily in Bru Adventures | Aug 7, 2017
  • Walking throughout a coastline full of history!Visiting a place several times may seem pretty boring after a while, however, touring the Northern Black Sea coastline annually to me never feels the same. As years go by and the kids get older, the same rocks we saw Posted by Brufamily in Bru Adventures | Aug 6, 2017
  • Our summer paradise in BG - GolfThe Black Sea changes color with weather, current variations, and time of the day. Bulgaria's coastline is my active vacation spot, and I am so thankful that we continue to make memories here year after year.

  • Beach bumsSpending a few hours at the beach each day is my kind of pace for vacation. Kids love designing structures by the waterfall, swimming, playing games, reading and chilling at the beach.
