    ... out of stone. The site of one of the worst terrorist attacks in Bulgarian history. This church was always used for ceremonies relating to high ranking officials. Wanting to dispose of the king the communist party hatched a plan to blow up the church knowing that the king is always in attendance at the ceremonies there. There was a funeral planned for a General, so knowing the king would be there the communists laced the roof with 25kg of TNT. However victims of their own ...

    ... an entire country. I remember reading something about Bulgaria being at war with Serbia, which would explain both the slow crossing the boarders between the countries, and the apparent poverty - not purely due to Soviet society, but also wars. I did enjoy the amount of cheese the Bulgarians eat. The Boreks for breakfast were delicious with their warm fatty pastry. It will be a city and a country I am not jumping to return to, but again one that I wish I knew more ...

Both of us ended up napping in the car with Sim at one point leaning so far over that he was almost using the drivers shoulder ...

    ... the town the night before catching long buses and trains!! The 5 of us (ourselves, Sam and the 2 Americans we met in Mostar) hit the town for drinks and dancing to celebrate the end of a chapter. Tears were shed, laughs were had and new memories were made.

    ... would have none of it. One of the guards, about 70 got really angry at those taking their time and actually headbutted one of the guys coming out! Bit different to friendly NZ!. We did a walking tour of the city that evening to see some of the local sights. The next day it was a bus to Veliko Tarnovo, a sleepy town north-west of Varna, famous for it’s Medieval Fortress and old town which is on a pretty steep face. We booked into our hostel which turned out to be run by ...
