  • Long Overdue ReturnAlmost three months have passed since my last entry. I’m unable to offer a reasonable explanation for this extended period of neglect.

  • A few hours in Bulgaria on the TrainBy the time we were crossing the Bulgarian boarder we had met up with, Reagan a Canadian backpacker travelling in the compartment next door.

  • In my end is my beginningThere comes a time when even the most transient of souls yearns for a blissfully (if not temporarily) sedentary existence.

  • Train DisdainI wanted to take a bus to Bulgaria, but somehow - this continues to mystify me - I ended up gawking at the Athens train station instead. Damn.

  • A Weekend among GiantsJust before the Serbian border and snuggled in between the hills, remote Belogradchik was the ideal weekend destination…no tourists, no traffic congestion, a direct bus (I know, I’m lazy) and absolutely stunning scenery.

  • My Disappointing Day at the EmbassyI was incredibly excited. I'd taken extra care to wear my "finest" clothes, I fixed my hair for the first time in months, I'll even admit to mentally rehearsing my introduction...I was going to the US Embassy to represent Animus Posted by MegMc2003 in To travel is such a big adventure... | Jun 28, 2007
  • Incredible KoprivshtitsaAlthough the hustle and bustle of Sofia is oh-so-appealing, I was thrilled to leave the city for the weekend.

  • Bizarre BulgariaI was purely lucky to find an apartment – my previous arrangements had been thwarted at the very last minute, and I was utterly desperate to find something, ANYTHING as soon as possible.

  • I made it!Here is my shortest entry ever, because I'm using a flatmate's computer. I made it to Bulgaria after thirty some hours of straight traveling through Bosnia and Serbia.

  • Good Riddance, Bulgaria.If anyone invites you on a trip to Bulgaria, say no. Say no and run away fast. You'd probably have a better time biting your own hand off for a week. Before you all label me irrational and judgmental Posted by lbassi in Paying The Bribe | May 4, 2007
  • Trains must stop at stations, not pass through, to be usefulAnd so it was that I left Bucharesti, and Romania, with the same number of wallets that I arrived with and without a single unintended dog bite, a much healthier state of affairs than my previous exit.
