If you are new to the My Bulgaria forums and want a softer introduction other than diving straight in, just say 'hi' here. Tell us a little about yourself or your interest in Bulgaria maybe? We were all 'new' once!

also a newbie

Postby JohnB » Thu Feb 10, 2011 10:35 pm

Hi all I'm a newbie to posting but have been reading on here for some time now. Had difficulty in getting to post but that seems OK now.
Where do I begin, we have a lovely house in Yerusalimovo, (near the new motorway fourKM down a tarmac road from Lybemits, 12KM from the Greek border)called The Yellow House. It is Yellow and almost in the centre right beside the school, which is only occupied at parties and funerals. There are supposed to be an other British couple living in the village but sadly never met them and the other villagers think they only came the once and have not returned.
We have been going out every year for the summer since 2007 Its almost finished bit of landscape gardening and a few tiles and only one small problem is one our air con units doesn't seem to work properly. So that's the jobs this summer.
We are planning a art workshop with house accommodation for our guests, being near the Rhodes gorge (spl) perfect for landscape painting. This time we plan to drive over, anybody that can give advice on routes it would be greatly appreciated.
We are John and Wendywith grandson Connor

thanks for reading my post

Hello and Welcome John and Wendywith grandson Connor

Regarding the routes please visit
I normally drive UK, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria.
There are no road maps and the GPS system does not do any good after seget in hungary
So follow signs to Nadlac which is the border
from nadlac to arad and from arad follow signs to sebes,sibiu, R Valcea, Pritesti, Bucharest, (head straight in the centre and when you see a spice shop on the left turn left and follow the signs to Guirgui
The drive is wonderful and the roads are very nice last time travelled in end Nov 2010 many be the snow could have hampered the roads but other posting here on which routes to follow can give you better judgment

If you need any more info shout out loud

Hi Johnb and family - welcome to MyB. Go to where the MOD has directed you, there is more than enough info there with regard to travel. Loads of us travel back and forth and tell of our experiences.

Good luck with the painting venture.

Hi John Wendy and Connor.

Welcome to the site, I'm sure you will soon feel your way around it.

You mentioned the village you have a house in. We have some very good friends who also share the same village as you. They don't use this site though. I will mention you guys to them. I can say, their house is in the process of being renovated, they have been out there quite a few times now. They love the village and can't wait to finish their project so they can spend more time relaxing rather than working. But I suppose that goes for quite a few people here, including us.

Happy reading
