The Eyeball of Bansko

... in the highlands to see an awesome alpine lake. It was actually a trudge through the snow, sometimes up to our knees, to a tiny ice-covered body of water at the top called Mt Okoto, or the Eyeball, because it looked....errr...like an eyeball. Even though no one was really clad for the walking conditions, it was a beautiful walk in the mountains, breathing in the fresh air and soaking up the alpine views.

We got ...

... 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 ...

Hermits and the Bulgarian Disco

... Steve's Mum would have been in heaven as she is a big fan of donkeys and one kindly local offered one of the girls, Al, a ride on one. Al politely declined. All of the locals smiled and waved at 13 tourists strolling down their main street, it was really quite charming.

We hiked up to Ivan Rila's tomb. Had some time on our own with the ward who introduced us to the tame robins that flew on my hand.
Many Bulgarians come up to this place for religious reasons, leave whishes in the wall, fetch source's water. Interesting to see where the Orthodox Church leaves room for connectedness with nature. I however don't believe that Ivan slept in this cave for 7 years without even preparing himself a mattress.

Snow and Crocuses

We tried to venture over from the lift station to Ivan Vazov Hut. We knew that the hut is open and we had food for self-supply with us. There was quite some new snow lately unfortunately after a snow-meagre winter. Later the day bad weather came in that was forecasted to sustain for the following days.

    Been to Bansko 3 times but last February was the first time i stayed at Premier. From now on i will only stay there. The hotel is new with large, clean and comfy rooms. The staff really cannot do enough to help you (You don see it often in Bansko). This hotel deserves the 5 star rating it has.
