    More miles on the iron curtain trail

    August 27 in Bulgaria ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    The landscape has changed significantly. It's still hilly, but it's very dry. There's still springs along the road, but most of them are only dripping or totally dry. We enjoyed the ride today, as we could go on remote backroads with almost no traffic. Part of it was again on the Iron Curtain Trail.
    The border to Greece is close as well. We were going to go there, but they require a negative Corona test and logistics for this are kind of difficult here. So like some other contries, we'll skip it on this trip.
    At some stage, we crossed a dam. It was interesting to see the two sides: one with lots of water, the other one pretty dry - see picture number 4 below.
    We decided to go to a rabbit farm to camp there. The owners were away, but arranged for us to stay over the phone. So we spent the evening with their two friendly and playful dogs Mimi and Sherry, and their cats. The older man who came by to feed the rabbits tried to talk to us. He had an old fashioned pocketbook with some German vocabulary, so we had a very basic conversation with him.

    Bulgaria Border Security

    June 24, 2015 in Bulgaria ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Well, wasn't that just the biggest waste of time - probably the most intrusive border security so far. As we arrived we were all asked to exit the coach with our passports as per usual, we returned to the coach where we were asked to take all our luggage out of the bottom of the bus (that is 100+ bags) and run through the scanner. Once completed we were asked to line all the luggage up along the ground in two lines along with all the hand luggage we had on the bus. We were then instructed to walk away from the luggage so that they could run a drug dog over the bags and the bus. Nothing was found and we were then allowed to re-pack the coach. The whole process probably cost us about 2 hours of our day!Read more
