... 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 ...
