    Back at sea level

    October 21, 2017 in Bulgaria

    With directions from our insider Jaap we felt confident to cross the upcoming range of hills and reach the Black Sea within a few days.

    Cycling along little-used roads through beautiful landscape during a seemingly never ending gypsy summer, we've developed more and more love for this country and its people.

    However, the village of Sungurlare ought to dampen our mood as we found ourselves within reams of garbage surrounding this village. We've already seen and documented a lot of trash along the roads and within the fields in Hungary, Croatia, Serbia and Bulgaria but this beats everything so far on our journey - the picture below is just a small snippet. Of course, there are reasons and attempts to explain this mess and we understand that people are working hard and fighting for their daily bread to survive - but what gives people the right to treat our environment like this, no matter how their living conditions look like? We're wondering what we can do about it on our journey to make at least a tiny little change...

    With slightly more than 3000km on our clock we've reached the Black Sea in Burgas. After spending two relaxing days on the beach, today, we're going to jump on a freight ship which will take us to Batumi in Georgia within three nights. We've refused our plan to cycle through Turkey as the Eastern highlands have already seen frost and snow - hardly imaginable how it would look like if we would get there in more than a month :)

    However, we're super excited to get the chance to explore Georgia!

    Burgas

    August 18 in Bulgaria

    We started early today and finished the part up hill before the heat. Only some flies today and we were prepared much better. So, luckily it was no problem. Our host told us later the flies are coming out in the heat only in August. After lunch, the way was going down until the vibrant city Burgas.
    At the beginning, we saw many people with dark mud all over their bodies and having a bath in extremely salty water next to the sea. They told us it's healthy.

    Then, we watched the local kite surfers and miraculously did not go surfing ourselves, even though we could have. (Maybe because of the 70km, the heat, not tooo strong winds...but I'm still not sure why). Instead we went to the beach.
    Burgas seems to be a very lively city worth to live in so far!

    Last day, windy day

    August 20 in Bulgaria

    Went to the beach, but we were unwelcomed. Our place was flooded and the waves was sweeping the little piece of sand which we claimed a few days ago. No chance to stay there. My wife had the best ideea, to go at the pool in the nearby complex. Now, we are just chilling.
    Next summer -> Fort Norks for sure!Read more
