Likes and dislikes of living in Bulgaria.

Postby emmy » Wed Jul 27, 2011 1:25 pm

Hi All


I would just like to ask people's likes and dislikes of living/visiting Bulgaria.

As a newbie it would be lovely to hear lots of positives and maybe negatives of Bulgaria.

Thanks

Hi Emmy
in no particular order of preference

Negatives:
Not enough flights so our kids can't visit/vice versa often and still very expensive.
An "MOT" on your car doesn't exist.
Water/Electricity supply issues can get annoying sometimes.
Lack of quality items such as tools, electrical items, you have to buy branded and ensure it is the real deal.
The Roads.
Health and safety, non existant.
Bureaucracy

Positives:
Four individual seasons.
Nature and unspolit beautiful landscapes and views for mile upon mile.
An "MOT" on your car doesn't exist. ;)
Blood test, lady tests ;) and even biopsy test results back within hours.
No need to make an appointment to see the dentist, and usually the Dr, though sometimes need to queue.
Cheap taxes.
Nothing is a problem, even when you're told that it is!
Walking all 3 dogs off the lead for hours without seeing a soul
Passion and pride of the Bulgarian people in their history.

There's more but that's off the top of my head and I know others will join in. Have you ever been?

Nikki

Owain! Where are you? :lol:

He'll give you plenty of the negatives - although you'll need to take most of them with a bushel or two of salt :wink:

Seriously, though - there are many "Bulgarias" to be found, depending on where you are and what you like/expect. :)
