10 of us jumped into two private buses this morning with our driver, Jorgi again, to drive up the nearby ski resort of Mt Vihen, at around 2500 metres. Our guide, Kraski, was a local ski instructor. He had won three bronze and one silver in the Bulgarian downhill and slalom so a pretty fit character. He took us for a half an hour walk up the hillside to a lake, through the snow.

... would train these poor bears in this Pavlovian way. Some bears were blind, as they plied them with alcohol to get them to perform better. They would put a nail through their very sensitive nose and lead them along or jerk them to get a reaction. They also had their claws removed. Pretty horrific stuff

This sanctuary had been set up by the Brigitte Bardot foundation back in 2000 and there is no entry fee, so definitely a worthy cause. It costs around $7.50 ...

21-28 Dec 2013 We came to Pamy for another week of snowboading over Xmas. Unfortunately the snow wasn't as good this year and the have been making snow on the runs for a few days now. We have a one bed apartment booked through Snow White Skiing this year, which luckily turned out to be large enough to have our friend Simon use the sofa bed in the lounge as he joined us for Xmas. Our instructor this year in Nik (Nikola Manolov - ask for him if you want a lesson in ...
