I know a few people, both men & women who live on their own in villages without any problems.
Personally I feel as safe, if not safer, in Bulgaria than the UK.
Is there no-one else living locally to you that you could ask for their opinion?

living alone

Postby rodz » Sun Aug 28, 2011 1:51 pm

I have lived alone in this village (Altimir) alone for 4 years and no problems. Many times Iv left my door unlocked and my gate is always open. My garden tools are always out and nothing has ever been touched. I have good nieboughs who are always bringing soup and veggies to the house. 4 years and I still cant speak the language but that doesnt stop them chattering away to me. Its a great village with so many friendly and helpful people. When I have had a problem with the car or house people always come and help and want nothing in return, they say Im part of the village and wont except payment

I think it probably would be one of the safest places in Europe - learn the language get to know your neighbours and you will love it - neighbourliness is very important in Bulgarian village communities - everyone helps each other out and keeps an eye on each other - I havent locked my doors for months - there is a Bulgarian saying - "when you look to buy a house - look at the neighbours not the house - you can change the house but not the neighbours"

Of course there is a chance that because you'll be living alone you will/may become more of a target for robbery. You certainly could get broken into (it seems your house has been a target in the past) where you will be beaten heavily (even mamed), possibly sexually humiliated and have your money and cards stolen,

Sleep with one eye open

Equally it might not happen though

Never thought of armed security. And Ebay? Buying a house in another European country and then living there without language skills or back up from anyone is asking for a visit from the local "we think you have money" brigade.

Although not living in BG yet, one of first tasks while visiting was to find a gun club. Aim and fire, no fear.

BG9374 if you have to move somewhere, and have to own a gun to protect your self, then why move there? thats not living. So move to Iraq, Afgan or the Sudan
