Bulgaria

Mentioning Bob on another thread got me to thinking about his ultimate destination Bulgaria

On TLF for a while it seemed to be THE place to move to with several members extolling its virtues and preparing to exit Turkey to go there

Are there any members still over there?

Re: Bulgaria

Yep. Am here, close to the Turkish Border near the Lesovo Border Check-Point. We live in a small Bulgarian Village called Boyanovo approx. 32kms from the border.

We have 47 Brits in our village out of a population of 550 ish in total. Of those Brits, I would say approx. half of them half moved here from Turkey, us included.

Re: Bulgaria

LOL. Sleepy. We are both taking lessons and we do get by with our BG neighbours. As long as you try to communicate they really do appreciate it. And now as long as talk slowly we more often than not, are very rarely stuck.

The BG Government now has an English Speaking member in nearly every office you go to, which is a great help. We have been here 6 years, and for 10 years in Alanya before that. Many of the locals and especially the Market people all speak Turkish as we are so near the border.

We have had 6 new faces move into our village in the last 6 weeks. An English guy an his Russian wife have just moved in from Spain. Alex & May Scott have just here from Turkey. And 2 other Brits Helen & Geoff have just arrived from Hull in UK.

Re: Bulgaria

This winter was the worst in 68 years for this region anyway. Normally I would say the winters her are on a par with the UK. Some snow, but doesn't normally stay long, cold at times.

The last few years there has been a distinct lack of rain/water. Even now the farmers are already crying for rain.

The further north of here, say around Veliko Turnaovo and any further up the country than that and you could be in for some real snow. Here for us and many Brits it's just about right. We are in an area called "The Thracian Plains".

Re: Bulgaria

That's not as bad as I had imagined -I had thought of 4 foot snow drifts etc for months on end

Across Europe seems to have been a freak winter. Our village had first snow in 31 years

Re: Bulgaria

The new peeps that moved in were also worried about the winters here, but as they said if this years was the worst in BG for 68 years, then there's nothing to worry about.

But they were originally from Scotland. LOL.
