The Eyeball of Bansko

... in the highlands to see an awesome alpine lake. It was actually a trudge through the snow, sometimes up to our knees, to a tiny ice-covered body of water at the top called Mt Okoto, or the Eyeball, because it looked....errr...like an eyeball. Even though no one was really clad for the walking conditions, it was a beautiful walk in the mountains, breathing in the fresh air and soaking up the alpine views.

Dancing with Bears

... would train these poor bears in this Pavlovian way. Some bears were blind, as they plied them with alcohol to get them to perform better. They would put a nail through their very sensitive nose and lead them along or jerk them to get a reaction. They also had their claws removed. Pretty horrific stuff

This sanctuary had been set up by the Brigitte Bardot foundation back in 2000 and there is no entry fee, so definitely a worthy cause. It costs around $7.50 ...

The bus trip from the voluptuous mountains thankfully only took 30 minutes. Crammed into a mini van with a ragging hangover is not Vlad's idea of a pleasant morning, and we know this doesn't apply to Ivan, besides which he was too busy playing with his blue plums. Bankso is a small little alpine town which exists for the most part for the skiing industry.
