... the hotel around 1 and you know what that means...nana nap time! So after some serious snoozing, we got up around 2 and wandered around the village of Bansko, heading down some lovely little alleyways and spent the rest of the day just chillling out in local bars and cafés drinking beer and coffee and relaxing and catching up on our photos and blog time.

It was really great to have a nice chill-out day in the ...

... to get the off-season tourists into their venues by thrusting brochures into our hands and offering us vast discounts, free coffee and their first born children.

Steve had an appointment with the Dancing Bear Sanctuary at 1.30 so the two of us finally found a nice looking restaurant, lured in by a charming Siberian maître de with good English. We ordered a salad and 2 chicken skewers at 1 pm, thinking naively this would take around 10 - 15 minutes ...
