Sofia – what started as a study weekend with the boys was semi-successful. Lots of study was done, lots of drinking was done by me. Sofia is not that appealing, and doesn’t get the thumbs up.
We started the weekend in LHR T5 – and decided to go to Plane Food – Gordon Ramsy’s restaurant. I wasn’t impressed, the food was good, but not great, and serving bolied eggs without egg cups is just odd. Odder still though was how Dermot decided to eat them. I gave some instructions looked away for only a short time, and man alive! Anyway – Sofia, or rather the plane to it – during the 3 hrs on the plane the vibe changed and as we landed for most it was like a crowded pub – people in the isle with drinks the stewards had become barmen, and queues for the toilets. Hire car – manual on Bulgarian roads was fun – not, but I coped. Hotel was splendid as was the beer fridge that was open 24x7 – thank God it also had water. The place is as cheap as chips – we paid around 60 Euro – had a room, breakfasts and free drinks for that! People don’t jog or bike in Sofia – or rather they didn’t whilst we were there. There were also loads of dogs. I fund it like Kiev or Moscow in ways.Read more
