      ... to Plovdiv to try and get some cash out before venturing through the mountains. Just past town we were diverted, little did we know this would be the buzz word for Bulgaria! Diverted off the main highway, onto a small road, that got smaller and smaller and the pot holes started to outnumber the amount of Tarmac left. It was slow going and the short journey turned long. In the middle of all the diverting, Bulgaria had suffered some major ...

      ... as both Baba's had also consumed a fair amount of Rakia by this stage and appeared to be dancing to different rythyms. We joined in with gusto and showed them how Aussies could also shake their booty.
