    ... what would be the main route for skiiers visiting in the winter from all over Europe with huge new complexes being built and signs lining the road 'luxury spa suite hotel' etc... As we pass an elderly woman using a waking stick moving a donkey along the road... Something amiss here perhaps... Just before dark we (after a few more diversions) find the monastery town, and quickly realise this is not the famous on in the book... And what promised ...

    ... I am already thinking of Sunday night dinner, trying to put this trip in the rearview mirror [but not first without a couple more WHS's].

    Daniela mentioned about 'those of you who want' to traipse around Philippi. Who wouldn't? Apparently Red and the Mouse might not want to [but did]. We have a site guide and do the museum on our own.

    It was a long haul uphill inland but we were at Philippi shortly after 0820. There was a bit of uncertainty with ...

    Back on private transport this morning and we took a 2 hour bus trip to Rila Monastery. Built for Saint John the miracle-working hermit from the 9th Century, it is located in a beautiful spot in the hills, and surrounded by snow capped mountains.

We had a quick glance through the church, as, by this stage, we have seen a fair few churches. ...

    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.

    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. All in all reasons for us to buy a ticket on the lift down again and postpone the Rila mountain crossing to a later date.
