Greetings from Lancashire!

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!

Greetings from Lancashire!

Postby BenNLis » Thu Oct 27, 2011 3:29 pm

Hi All!

We are newbies to this site and were wondering if anyone is from the East Lancs area. We are from Blackburn and would love to get in contact with anyone from our neck of the woods.

Now for a little background info about ourselves......we have literally just returned from our first visit to Bulgaria after purchasing a house in the Silistra region, about 30mins away from Tutrakan. We only intended the house to be a holiday home but after falling completely and utterly in love with the country, we have decided that we would like to move there one day, once we have renovated the house........and learned the language!

Speaking of the language, can anyone recommend a class or tutor in our area please?

Good bye for now.

Ben and Lis

Greetings from Cumbria. I bought my first house in BG in 2005 to use as a holiday home. Now, six years and two houses later I am planning to move to BG permanently too. Strange how it gets under your skin,eh? :lol:

Hello Ben and Lis
We have recently moved from Lower Darwen, we now live near Bolton and we have property at Bliznatsi near Varna.
We did have a few lessons with a Bulgarian lady who lives in Darwen, she is married to an english guy and we used to go to their house once a week for a lesson.
If you want any more info then please send me a message.
Mark.
