Yay, I’m back. I’m comfortably sat in Spain at this very moment, and I’m very sorry for the delay on the round-up of our Balkan adventure. But I do have a pretty good excuse. Yes, you read the title right. Mike and I, being a couple, came to a disagreement. Which resulted in him storming […]Read more "Day 24 & 25: Facing Solo Travel… Sofia, Bulgaria"
Actually, I instantly regretted deleting TWO photos. This is that post about my bingo wings that I mentioned in my last update, by the way. We were supposed to be visiting a monastery on Saturday, but SOMEBODY (me) got confused over which monastery it actually was. Bachkovo Monastery didn’t sound as exciting as Rila Monastery, […]Read more "Day 23: Ever Instantly Regretted Deleting A Photo? Plovdiv, Bulgaria"

Because then you hear stories about me […]Read more "Day 19: Bulgarian Food Gets Our Seal Of Approval… Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria"
After our awesome trip to the surrounding areas of Veliko Tarnovo, Mike got itchy feet and insisted that we take a walk up the countless hills to visit the sights actually IN the town. My legs were killing me and I’ve worn a hole into my shoes already but I couldn’t miss the chance to […]Read more "Day 17 & 18: Mountains Beyond Mountains… Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria"
You lucky, lucky people. You get a whole post that is literally about a crazy UFO shaped building AND the greatness that is garlic Parlenki. I’ve not gone crazy either, all of this (that means this post and the one before) happened in one day. So without further ado, on with the rest of the […]Read more "Day 16 (Part 2): First, Parlenki.
