Traveling the Street of Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Traveling the Street of Plovdiv, Bulgaria

What a treat it was to visit Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The city dates back some 8,000 years ago, and is the oldest continually inhabited city in Europe. Old Town is the main tourists appeal, although we found gems placed sporadically throughout the city. It is a much smaller town than neighboring city, Sofia, and much calmer. Cafes are plentiful, and art galleries, a little shops line the cobble stoned roads. It’s a great walking city, and you…

Hitchhiking Europe

Hitchhiking Europe

We were weary at first. My only prior experience with hitchhiking was not pleasant. After passing a man twice on the road I decided I should give him a lift. The moment he sat down I was overwhelmed with the scent of alcohol and urine; I suppose a closer look during the initial drive-by should have been an indicator, but the man was down on his luck and I was determined to do a good deed….
