yes samokov is a **** hole.
i agree with you.
when i bought there it did not matter to me it was a **** hole.
all that mattered was that it was near the rila mountains, only 45 mins bus ride from sofia - so easy access
it was near to the sapa hot bath as houses in sapa village are really expensive.
my plan on the school house i bought there was to run it as a hostel
1st april - 1 oct using my network in sofia & across europe to drag in guests
then oct - april run it as an english school giving the village free lessons but everyone else pays.
but i have sold my house now and my hostel network route to a hostel in sofia
i cannot be bothered to help a village if they are more interested in trying to **** me over than take advantage of me teaching them english for free
the whole village has lost out now i have sold the school house and left
it's bulgarian mentality all over BG
they would rather quick money today than look for a future for themselves or
and if anyone knows anywhere in BG that is NOT like this, let me know and i will
move there and teach their village english for free
my neighbour who tried to smuggle drugs via me i was even going to teach
his sons for free too.
so i think it is not a case of everywhere i go i find trouble troyan.
its more a case of when you offer a village/someone free help, they take the p i s s
samokov is a **** hole.
there are a few good people there i know.
people who work in or run their own businesses
i even used to meet people at the sapa hot bath who were working in germany, scotland etc but just back to visit their families for a week.
they were all good people.
they had shifted their arse and made a better life for themselves instead of sitting
around in samokov moaning like losers
but thats the same all over BG troyan.
the good people, with any ounce of brain, have left.
BG is left full of losers
even the government are aware of the good people leaving and are worried
it is leaving a skill shortage for the whole country.
