... say, Terrea was not excited to run back, grab her bikini and jump in; we passed on this one. We could easily understand how Varna could be a popular beach destination in the summer with unlimited possibilities of places to eat and party right alongside the beach. One day in the cold but sunny weather along the coast was enough for us so we booked another overnight bus for Istanbul that evening. Surely Turkey will have some warmer weather right??? We could really use ...
