Hi John,Welcome to the site.....research the forum,if you like living on your own then Bulgaria wont be a problem if your asking how hard it will be,then that's different as sometimes it can be quite frustrating,advise,learn the langauge,even basics unless your moving to the coast or a brit area.
As for being on your own,well you never will be as you've joined this site ! :wink:

Welcome John :lol: As others have said there are other threads in the main forums that you may find useful, the following link is a good recently updated one from various peeps that have been in BG full time for a while:

http://www.mybulgaria.info/modules.php? ... 72&start=0

Also if you put your village 'name' of kiselovo into the forum search box and click 'seach forums' you will find some interesting snippets maybe?

Cheers

Hi Johnm74.

Welcome to MYBG. I have lived on my own here for over a year and love it. I live in a village just north of Dobrich called Snop. Quite a few folks on here know me and I'm sure they will attest that I am thriving.

I came initially with zero/ziltch/nula knowledge of the language and no-one in the village spoke any English, but I think that made the learning process all the more fun! Nights down the pub with the locals and my dictionary working through communicating with each other. You get a lot of respect here for that.

The neighbours look after me and I have also developed an small English mutual support network in the area. For me it was and still is a big adventure.

Give me a shout if you want to know more or meet up sometime.

It's a Lancashire/Yorkshire thing though!

Cheers

BGCarl

hi johnm74,

I am not to far away from you in england ,but i am well away from you in Bulgaria. i don't know much about being on your own in BG,as i have my boss (the wife) with me usually. I should learn some bulgarian language,even a few basic phrases goes a long way. good luck for the future.

Definitely learning Bulgarian is the key. Get to grips with the alphabet. Get a dictionary English-Bulgarian-English, a phrase book, Teach Yoursellf Bulgarian. Then start on the adventure of actually USING the language.

Of course it is easier for those who have experience in learning foreighn languages. Howevere take heart everyone CAN learn something. You might not becoem a fluent speaker but you should be able to learn something that will help with communication. And you can have fun on the way !

Hi, there are a few british people in General Kisselovo, its a nice friendly village. The bulgarians are very friendly and helpful as well. I got my car bogged down in some mud and three locals came, armed with shovels and dug my car out. I paid them for their help but they certainly didnt ask for anything at the time. Very nice village. I dont live in the village but have friends who have houses there.
