Tucked into the southeastern corner of Europe, Bulgaria is best known for its long Black Sea coast, speckled with historic seaside towns, remote beaches and brash clubland resorts. Elsewhere, however, you'll find wild, heavily forested and hugely varied landscapes ideal for hiking, cycling, mountaineering and wildlife watching....
It is so refreshing to see a positive article about my second home. Perhaps the folks in New Zealand will visit and become as much in love with the country and the people as I have. As an artist the museums, churches, and street shows of Bulgarian artists are great. Don't forget to visit Plovdiv, and Neseber, as well as Sofia. I'm not ignoring the rest of the country...I'm just in love with those three cities and their personalities. Thanks to all Bulgarians for making your country a wonderful place to visit and to live.
