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!
