  • As the variety I'm with grandchildren graduated from the trip to the mountains and Strandzha reservation. We climbed to the spring of the river Mladežko into the cave and there must be a short/crawl/, visited the waterfall and there is rejuvenated, we took a stroll in the shade of the Woods and it was after the Sun quite pleasant. In a typical village we dined together, tasted the local honey, went to the old typical building's receptive to and also after school, went through the village along with the donkey, chickens and watched the Stork parents and their offspring. During the trip we admired the deep canyon, a different type of mountains, than in the US with a different flora. Pleasantly spent time.

  • From Bourgas to reserve Strandja about 50-60 km. Looking like a go. In the direction of the border with Turkey. It is possible and through Sozopol ... Preserve natural and so big. We are not reaching the Malko Tarnovo have turned to the gole Petrova Niva, where 114 years ago, rebels staged a Conference and had planned to separate armed territory from the Ottoman Empire. For 26 days smashed their rebellion. People around this "memorable" little place. Two cars. And two towards came apart from the main road 12 miles on bad road. Machine. Then went back to the track and Byala Voda and from there through the mountains to Tsarevo. Almost 80 km. In Tsarevo had visited Port Moody and drove back to Burgas. The circle came out more than 200 km. Not particularly gory, not particularly fragmentary views of ... travel in quotes for the sake of travel. Time killed)
