Just a few words in this blog. I’ll take you with photos through my journey which continuous through Bulgaria and Greece to the border of Turkey.
The photos are focused on my journey, nature and local life in the mountains of Bulgaria and in a little part of the north of Greece.
At the border from Macedonia to Bulgaria.
A local farmer using every piece of grass which he can find for his sheeps.
Is it spring? Or are they fighting to become the new leader.
This is one fascinating skeleton. I just don’t know what this has been for animal.
One of my free camping places near a muddy river in Bulgaria.
Today’s meal is spaghetti with tuna, mayonnaise, sweet paprika and black pepper. An advice from my host Maria from Sofia.
One of my breaks. Here in an abandoned village in between rocky mountains.
I’ve seen them a lot in Eastern Europe: abandoned or unfinished properties.
High in the mountains between the snow I found this shop. And yes, the store was still open.
Bulgaria has beautiful nature. I still don’t regret that I started cycling in winter.
A local restaurant on the road run by two ladies. For 2 euros I had a complete meal.
A Bulgarian woman in the mountains with her herd of cows.
In one of the villages I came across this meadow with cows.
A lake between mountains. Breathtaking.
Most roads in Bulgaria are ok. Though there are many who need maintenance.
My view of a sunset from a pitch between the farmer fields.
Women at work on the road in the city of Haskovo in eastern Bulgaria.
Horse and carriage you see a lot between speeding vehicles. Also lonely cyclists.
It is always just a few days that I am in a country. I leave at the peak.
Before Turkey I cycled across a small part of the north of Greece. A very good road where I counted a car In every five minutes. Bingo!
The upcoming month I’ll drink a lot of tea with the Turkish people. If the hospitality also has space for cycling I hope to go along the Black Sea to Trabzon to score my Iranian visa. First some of Istanbul, known as one of the largest mazes for bike riders.
