Tarnovo is Veliko But The Guide Isn't

Tuesday, 6 Oct 2015 | Views [347]

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

Friday, 2 Oct 2015 | Views [463]

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 >

Raining at the Monastery

Tuesday, 29 Sep 2015 | Views [433]

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 >

Sofia was cold (in the 50's) and rainy.   Anyway, I started the day by another walking tour. First I bought a leather jacket at a thrift shop for around $12.00, and then I continued on to the tour. (It wasn't raining too bad in the morning).... Read more >
