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 >

Bust A Move

BULGARIA | Thu, 1 Oct 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [472]

Yesterday was a busy day. First of all-it wasn't raining. It was overcast with some bits of sun and somewhat cold-but no rain, for the first time.    After once again enjoying the large buffet breakfast at the hostel, I went to the Museum ... Read more >

Raining at the Monastery

BULGARIA | Tue, 29 Sep 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [450]

Another cold, rainy day yesterday.  The weather report indicated it was supposed to  clear up, but that has not happened. The weather has just been miserable. I have come to the horrible conclusion that maybe my days of wearing shorts on this ... Read more >

Yesterday was another cold rainy day here in Sofia. I started the day by going to the Museum of Socialist Art, which seemed like it would be interesting.  Plus, it should be warm and dry.   First I had to find the museum. I thought it ... Read more >

Uff... za nami kolejny odcinek podróży :) W Budapeszcie było wesoło, choć pochmurno i deszczowo niestety... tak więc uciekamy na południe - mam tylko jeden polar i jedne dżinsy :) Za mną pierwsza couchsurfingowa przygoda i przyznam, że wyszła fajowo.... Read more >

One of the many waterfalls along the trail. When we saw our guide taking a photo of it we knew something was special. He said in his 18 years of doing this trail this is the first time he has seen this much water causing it to deflect off a rock and shower us. : by danidawnandstevo, Views[229]
