We have made it safely to Bulgaria, our 15th country of the trip! The border crossing from Serbia to here was the easiest we’ve encountered so far, mostly just a smile and wave after stamping our passports.
Our hosts are lovely, a British lady and her young son who are living the dream life here in Bulgaria with their dogs, cats, and horses (they have as many as we do)! I already feel super comfortable here, as these are definitely my kind of people. There’s another Brit and her two daughters living nearby; its made me a bit homesick hearing their accents and wishing for England.
Oddly, I’ve found the three kids we’ve met to be very entertaining. I’m not a kid person, as anyone who knows me is aware, and usually I tolerate children rather then enjoy their company. Maybe it’s just the British accent that has me so charmed but I was genuinely enjoying talking with them and learning about their lives here. It helps that they range from ages 8 to 11, the age group that I generally find to be the most tolerable. It will be interesting to spend more time with them.
It’s FREEZING here, the coldest weather we’ve encountered so far that we’ve had to sleep in without heat of some kind. Tomorrow we will sort that aspect out, as there is no way I can sleep in the caravan without a heat source other then the dogs and cats as the temperatures dip the deeper in to winter we get! But for tonight, I’m going to force all five cats to sleep with me and snuggle the dogs as close as I can. Wish us luck we survive till tomorrow!
