Bulgaria in Photos

I have to say, travel to Bulgaria exceeded my expectations in many respects. There were mountains and forests and rivers; cute cobblestone streets and massive Soviet era buildings; colorful monasteries and really, really old churches. Oh, and some amazing Roman ruins. A little bit of everything, to be sure.

  1. There are no words for how much I love the cat curled up and overlooking the musicians in the square. THIS is why I’m heading to Bulgaria!

  2. Hi Katie – Have really been enjoying your blog. I’m getting ready to head out for my own RTW trip and since I too live in Chicago, wonder if I might buy you a cup of coffee and pick your brain sometime?

  3. Stop making me want to go to more places! My list is already too long! Seriously though, gorgeous photos, looks like you had a great time. Looking forward to reading more about your trip.

    1. Tsarevets Fortress in Veliko Tarnovo was definitely my favorite. Although I loved the Roman ruins in Plovdiv too.
