    ... we were travelling to Bulgaria, seemingly not buying that we were going for vacation. But we eventually made it The whole border process took forever, so we were really tired by the time we got on the bus. We fell asleep again and woke up to a thick layer of snow as we approached Sofia!

    ... the square boasts temples representing four different religions--a Catholic church, an Orthodox church, a mosque, and a synagogue--all within 300 meters of each other.

    From there, we visited the site of a former public bathhouse, where mineral spring water still bubbles up from fountains. Throughout the years, the citizens of Sofia have turned to these various springs for their purported healing properties, and Jaclyn and I decided to test the merits of ...
