Hello guys! Yesterday me and my fiance had an idea and after 1 hour we bought tickets to go to Bulgaria! Simple as that! :) For both of us was always an unknown place, so we decided to go :) the trip included a guided tour to Sandanski, Petritsi and Melnik! My biggest obstacle was that I couldn't read or speak bulgarian, so we went to several places alone without knowing the names of the streets and general information. Fortunately we didn't get lost or something :p
Now this photo is not something special, but there are two countries in it. It's the borders and I am on the bulgarian side ;)

So here's the city of Petritsi- the population is near 30,000 people




I loved the buildings


Then we went to Melnik- it is an old village and the smallest in Bulgaria. They produce really good wines.
I liked that sign :p


Souvenirs?

here's me on a wooden bridge


this is a huge statue of a former politician, Jan Sandanski

Now when we got to Sandanski it was raining so hard that I couldn't get a picture. It stopped raining a while before we leave -bad luck- so I managed to take only two pics. This city has really nice and big parks!


Last but not least, my souvenirs! Anyone wants to come over for a sweet snack? :p

That's all folks! :wave1:

Thanks guys! It was fun and taking pics is a good way to "take" you with me wherever I go :) and yes, if anyone of you comes to South-East Europe one day, I'll be happy to show these places :)
We walked so much yesterday and now I feel so tired :p Now I am planning to go on another journey and the last for this year ;)

I see you had a great time in Bulgaria!
Language shouldn't be a barrier when it comes to seeing new places and enjoying what a foreign country has to offer us. :)

Looking at that statue, I would never have guessed the man was a politician.
I would guess he was a famous hunter or explorer. :p

The language was a thing..! Some of them were speaking greek, 1 of them could speak english but most of them bulgarian! Money was another deal.. 3 out of 4 accepted euros, the others only Lev's. Luckily we worked it out after visiting 2-3 shops :p
Jan Sandanski was a politician and he is considered as a hero in Bulgaria. But I agree, I would think he is a hunter if the tour guide hadn't told us that he was a politician :p

Haha :p I would love to visit the States, Rick! But I think if I cross the Atlantic, it will be for good!
I am sure Arizona is great for photography, I've read a few things on the internet.. but I am planning to go somewhere else next week ;)

What a wonderful photo holiday, Despina! :)

I always love your little tours, they make me feel oceans away :D

The thing about Europe I love the most is that you can go anywhere you'd like, to any country, many times just a few hours away. Here in the states it takes at least a whole day to get out of the country! :eek:

Can't wait to hear about your next trip! :p

Oh, also, if I went to Bulgaria that's what I would bring back for souvenirs, too :giggle:

Thank you Geneva! It was a nice trip and I highly recommend it to those who haven't visited Bulgaria! Next time I'll go to the Capital city, Sofja!
I am still thinking about my next trip.. let's see..
My souvenirs were biscuits covered in chocolate- incredibly cheap- a rasperry wine (they make many fruit wines such as fig, apple, strawberry, etc) beers and shots! :)

Sometimes it is simple as that: if you have a free weekend and you can afford it, go somewhere! :p I would love to visit all countries that are close to Greece. For me it was the third journey I had abroad, after Cyprus and Germany. Now I want to go to Turkey! :D
I'll take some photos with Alex next time, Nick ;)
