Tarnovo is Veliko But The Guide Isn't

BULGARIA | Tue, 6 Oct 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [362]

Yesterday was the first full day here in Veliko Tarnovo, and it was a nice day. I went on the usual free walking tour at 11:00 am (after breakfast at the hostel), and it was very rushed. The guide just seemed to be reading from a script, and didn't want ... Read more >

Last Relaxing Sofia Day

BULGARIA | Fri, 2 Oct 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [478]

I always like to make my final day in a large city a relaxing one. Rather then walking tours, museums, etc- (which I have already done), I like to  just relax, and maybe look at the sights one last time. And that is exactly what yesterday was. After ... Read more >

Back in NYC

USA | Sat, 4 Sep 2010 | By alexkozovski | Views [650]

On the train today… all day from Sofia to Bucharest, then onto Brasov. As much as this is a bum-sore, it does give me plenty of time to reflect on my time in Bulgaria and “get that bloody blog done”. For the last five months, I’ve been in this frustrating, ... Read more >
