Trip Report Adventures in Bulgaria

Jump to last reply

Hello, there,
my name is Maria and I want to share my poor experience with the adventure tours. This was my first and now I am very keen on :) I was on a cultural and adventure trip in Bulgaria and it was amazing, really wonderful. Our trip finished with an adventure tour at the Winners; Spring. We have the opportunity to spend two days amongst the virgin nature of Bulgaia. No cell phones, newspapers and i-net :) Only trees, grass, bird songs and us :)
I have decided to spend the night in a cave /it is offered/ and think that these are the most wonderful two days of my life!
We've milk goats and we've make our own bread and we,ve ate fish which we catch with spears :) after that we coocked it ourselves on the fire
It was amazing, really it is hard to describe it, but this was the most recharging adventure I 've ever had :D

    Bulgaria, the land where the donkey cart outnumbers cars in the villages, cheese is still made by householders and the milk comes from a local farm. There are no eggs in the village shop in the afternoon because they sell out everyday and one must wait the pleasure of the hen for more. Beer is still under a Euro for a large bottle, people make wine from their own grapes and then distil Rakia from the leftovers. Bread making is so common that supermarkets sell live yeast and people still bottle fruit and vegetables to the extent that replacement lids for jars are sold by the hundred in every market.

    I don't know about living in caves but the average Bulgarian village house is Spartan by western standards, however, what is lacking in creature comforts is compensated by the warmth of traditional hospitality. To be invited into a Bulgarian house is to be fed with the best of natural products and watered usually with some form of home made alcohol at the drop of a hat, here the old rule applies - the less people have the more they give.
