Sunday, December 9th, 2012

So last week my Wife and I went to Varna for a few days, this week we are going to Plovdiv and Stara Zagora. I may not be posting for a few days depending on internet connections and other factors.

Meanwhile here is a pic of our very modest Christmas tree.

My wife and I have taken a short trip to Varna to see the Bulgarian sea and hopefully some of the sights. I only have my Smart phone to post from and the camera is pretty bad but here are some pics from the flight.

Friday.

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Today was a marked contrast to yesterday. Glorious sunshine and fairly warm. I went for a long walk in South Park, its a pretty big park and it took me a couple of hours but it was worth it.

Rainy Day..

Sorry not much to post today as it pretty much rained for the whole time.

Here is a photo of the mean looking clouds.
