    Finding our hotel (Central Hotel)

    August 15, 2018 in Bulgaria ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    We arrived at the hotel around 2pm. We got here from Bucharest via Vama Veche border because we know the road already and it's a good one even if it's not the shortest.
    Finding this hotel was quite easy. Nothing fancy, it's a regular hotel, with big room, bad refrigerator. Also, even if we chose a queen size bed, it is a queen size bed but with two adjoining mattresses. We fackin' hate when this happens. All good until now.Read more

    Chasing the sun

    August 15, 2018 in Bulgaria ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    After we unpacked, we jumped right in the swimsuits! Damn, I can't wait to get into the water! 😱
    After a Subway sandwich, in 10 minutes we got to the beach. Rent 2 sunbeds and an umbrella. It costs us around 27 bgn ( quite expensive, if you ask me). We like this beach: clean water (even if now is windy outside), fine sand without rocks and shells. Oh, I almost forgot the most important thing! In contrast with romanian beaches, here you won't be disturbed by loud music from all around. Now I finally hear only the people and kids happiness and sea waves.Read more

    Ay ay Captain!

    August 15, 2018 in Bulgaria ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    We were dissapointed because we wanted so bad to eat at the Bolero restaurant (#2 on TripAdvisor at this moment). Bolero was full but we've made a reservation for Saturday. Can't wait!!
    Captain Steak House (#145 on TripAdvisor) wasn't on our plan. But we saw the menu outside and we liked. They have rooftop terrace and it's on the beach so why not?!
    The food came pretty fast. We ordered Hawaii Chicken, Pork with pepper sauce and Breaded Calamari. Of course, draft beer, as always 😝! The meal was surprisingly good. Fantastic I could say. Reasonably priced and good portions. We also loved the atmosphere.
    Good night!

    Day #2 resume

    August 16, 2018 in Bulgaria ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Few words: great sleep, poor breakfast at the hotel (we don't recommand this hotel if you emphasize this), great donuts, lunch at the MC, afternoon sleep (like the elders).
    Recommandation: Malina Pub (#13 ranked) has the best pizza I've eaten lately. Also Shrimps Tagliatelle was delicious. + Zagorka beer 👌Read more

    Bon appétit

    August 18, 2018 in Bulgaria ⋅ 🌙 25 °C

    I couldn't wait to come here and taste this amazing food (Bolero, #2 ranked).
    Our expectations were beated to death by this restaurant. We travelled a lot, so we ate, A LOT! We could say that we tasted various foods in different restaurants, but Bolero is the best ever. We ordered an appetizer (avocado mousse with shrimps) and our appetide has gone wild. My wife was so anxious about the main course, and she was right to be so. The sturgeon with risotto Milanese was the best thing we have ever taste. The risotto was made with sofran and the flavour is just a golden heaven. The sturgeon was a little crispy on the outside, and soft in the middle, and the prosciutto came just right with it.
    Let's not forget about what I ordered - Pepper steak. It was an awesome pepper steak. I gladly recommend it. We had an amazing dinner at Bolero, and we already made a reservation for Monday evening, to end our journey in the best way possible.

    Last dinner in Sunny Beach

    August 20, 2018 in Bulgaria ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    This is our favourite place to eat in Bulgaria. We visited Bulgaria many times, and we are delighted by this country's cuisine. But Bolero, exceeded our expectations with the most amazing food we've ever tried. We were in vacation in Sunny Beach, and we knew about Bolero. We didn't find a table on Wednesday, so we made a reservation for Saturday. It was worth the wait. We ordered Mousse of avocado and Shimps as appetizer, and then Crispy Sturgeon with Risotto Milanese and T-bone pepper steak. The steak was very good, the appetizer was amazing, but the sturgeon was just Heaven. We made a reservation for Monday evening after we finished the meal. On monday, guess what? That mousse of avocado was so good, we ordered again. And the sturgeon. And some mussels as appetizer. Everything was amazing. We recommend this place to anyone who visits Sunny Beach. The staff is very friendly and careful. The food order was served very fast. We waited no more than 10 minutes for the appetizer and 10 more for main course. The atmosphere was intimate and romantic, with live music (romantic music). I almost forgot about the dessert. CHEESECAKE !!! Maybe the best we've ever had. We are gourmandes, we try local food on best ranked restaurants everywhere we go. Bolero just became one of our favourites.
    P.S. the prices are mid ranged, and small in comparison with the food provided. We paid around 60 BGN (aprox.30 euro) for 2 appetizers(mussels, mousse of avocado and shrimps), 1 main course (sturgeon with risotto Milanese), a cheesecake and 2 glasses of white wine.
    Bolero, we will se each other next year!

    Aquapark zum Herbstbeginn

    September 22, 2019 in Bulgaria ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    300 Kilometer, 9 Stunden unterwegs

    Erneut eine kältere Nacht hinter uns gebracht, stellen wir uns langsam die Frage, ob wir die dicken Decken rausholen sollen. Irgendwann müssten wir es sowieso tun. So zeitig aufgestanden, können wir beim Frühstück erleben wie die Sonne aufgeht. Das ist eine gute Belohnung für das Verlassen des warmen Bettes.

    Am Vortag haben wir uns bereits über die zahlreichen Wasserparks in der Nähe kundig gemacht. Da wir beide noch nie in Einem waren, entschließen wir uns den Tag dafür zu nutzen. Die Auswahl fällt uns sehr leicht, denn es hat nur noch ein Wasserpark geöffnet. Und dieser Wasserpark hat heute den letzten offenen Tag des Jahres. Wir haben 19°C und Sonne. Der Wind macht das Ganze jedoch etwas eisig. Nach ein paar Überlegungen und dem Vorteil den Preis für die Nebensaison zu zahlen, machen wir uns auf den Weg.

    Der Wasserpark ist sehr leer und wir müssen eigentlich nie anstehen. Das ist sehr cool, weil wir uns vorstellen, wie das in der Hochsaison sein muss. So verbringen wir fast den ganzen Tag mit 16 aufregenden Rutschen. Sobald uns zu kalt ist, trocknen wir uns ab und legen uns in die Sonne. Neben uns liegen ein paar Briten, die ihren Sommerurlaub verbringen. So wohl wie die sich fühlen, ist für sie auch noch Hochsommer. Nach einigen Speed-Rutschen über halbe Looping-Rutschen bis hin zu Rutschen, wo man wieder hochrutscht, haben wir erstmal genug davon und der Tag ist nun auch schon fortgeschritten.

    So geht es schon wieder weiter hin zur rumänischen Grenze. Kurz davor befindet sich aber der Rusenski Lom Naturpark mit Kalkschluchten und einem Klosterkomplex in Fels gehauen. Wir kommen erst im Dunkeln an und die Nacht kündigt uns auch schon die Temperatur an. Also holen wir unsere Winterkleidung inklusive der Winterdecken aus dem Dachkoffer. Nach ein paar gruseligen Tierbegegnungen mit leuchtenden Augen und rascheln im Busch fallen wir auch schon ins Bett. Welches Tier uns da geärgert hat, wissen wir aber nicht.
