... went….. haha no I did not the water was cold and I did not want to let Australia down with a shrunken image.
So interestingly enough it was quite fascinating to watch the naked ego thing in a Napoleon style stance weaponry on the ready. I think you guys will get the idea anyway given we had established camp and could not be bothered moving we did not let such details worry us and had a refreshingly pleasant evening in the much quieter ...
Varna is a pretty nondescript town. Third largest in Bulgaria, with a large port and beaches. And a history of Mafia. We went to ANOTHER archeological museum. This one is known for having the oldest collection of worked gold in the world. Otherwise, a lot of Greek and Roman things.

Last night we walked along the main street and the sea front, but it was mostly loud, busy bars. I think this is the kind of place that party animals would love - out at 11pm, party all night and barely see daylight before they start again. Obviously, just made for us!
