After a whistle stop tour of what felt like most of Turkey, we decided to have a few days off from sightseeing and go and sit on the beach. So we hopped on a bus and headed to Bulgaria where we planned to do not very much just north of Varna on the Black Sea coast. It was on the way to Romania (our next stop), so nice and handy.
I feel slightly bad for Bulgaria in that we didn't see much of it, didn't really learn an awful ...
... long shorts'. We got paired up with a Rumanian couple. We have never met any Rumanians before and if these were the norm I'm looking forward to the next lot. We had a really great round together; she was a very good golfer, he had a really bad day... but he managed to keep it together ( well almost, until he threw his driver into the bushes....). Amazingly most of the members of these courses are Rumanians who ...

Dinner overlooking the Black Sea under an equally black sky (looking stormy again) completed a great day.

It was a long detour to come up here to play but today was worth every km. We are playing the other two courses too and I'm sure they will be nice but it will be a long time before I play a better course. Brilliant day! C.
Now we are happily installed in a self catering apartment on the Cape Kaliakra where there are 3 golf courses. This detour to Bulgaria has been so Charlie could play at the amazing cliff hanging Thracian Cliffs course, but there is some doubt whether he can get a round (fully booked amazingly) in the next 3 days. We had no idea it would be such an issue but we are talking to a girl with influence tomorrow fingers crossed.
