Hello, just popping in again. We managed to get to Bulgaria last week for the first time this year. Good timing as we flew back to London last Wednesday straight into lockdown! We didn't go into Sofia itself, just to our village and one night in a hotel in Pernik for a mini break (and a soak in a bath as our house boiler had broken so we had been boiling up pans of water to wash...). Lovely to be back, see our neighbours and friends and give the house a clean. LilacLillie, our place is in a village west of Sofia in the Pernik region, near Radomir. We get the space and village life, but there are three buses a day from the village (and loads if you change buses) to Sofia, which is 50km away, so get the best of both worlds.
