Discovering Bulgaria and the Black Sea

August 29, 2010

I’m sure you all saw the pictures on the news of the smoke or ‘Smog’ in Moscow from forest fires all over central Russia as the temperatures hit 40C plus during the day. Yes we came to Moscow for the Summer and it just happened to be the hottest one on record. It’s no fun being in the centre of a big city experiencing such temperatures. Sometimes we could escape to Rita’s family Dacha but in the end the smoke made that impossible.

Yes, the hot temperatures and the ‘Smog’ finally got to us so we decamped to the Bulgarian, Black Sea coast for 10 days for a well earned rest. It’s less than a two hour flight from Moscow to Burgas on the Black Sea. Bulgarian people are extremely friendly and it is an area rich in cultural diversity and history.

Trying to keep with the theme of  ‘Blacks and Backs’ here are some photos of our adventure off the beaten track rather than in the back country, in the Balkans down on the Black Sea:
