Thanks for the reality check banjo. Was at the sea park in Burgas yesterday and it is so green and beautiful which made me think again about Spain. It would be very difficult to replicate what we have here in the Burgas area or indeed Bulgaria in general. I think i would get bored with Spain very fast. The only advantage with Spain in my opinion is the infrastucture is better and menial tasks at banks etc get done much faster.I will keep the forum updated on the outcome of the maintenance issues here.
All the best from Sozopol
