Probably, there is no country “frontier” than Bulgaria. Many do not even consider this option of rest as “uninteresting and too expected.” I will not argue, but I have everything wrong. Firstly, it was from this country that my annual travels began, but the matter was not only in the opening – Bulgaria presented, without exaggeration, a wonderful beach holiday in Sozopol!
The resort is not unique in that, staying at a private villa in the Old Town, you can go to the sea in bathing suits: a wild (and nudist at the same time) rocky beach is a stone’s throw away. And not to dine in seaside restaurants (there are about 400 in total!) In the same swimsuits.
And not by the absence of a language barrier: the old people know Russian for their former socialist friendship, and the youth teaches it for business reasons. And … in general – it’s not that! The most important thing for me, the Crimean aborigine, whose young blood during mosquito dates were godlessly drunk by mosquitoes, was just their total absence in Sozopol! No mosquitoes, no midges, day or night – and this is such a blessing that next year we went there too!
Bulgaria endowed with wonderful sea and weather, various beaches, excellent fresh seafood, reasonable prices and amazing (compared to the Crimea) service and hospitality: the operator in the pay toilet of the beach (litter for intimate details!) Walked off to the shower cabin and other amenities; the waiter in a restaurant over the sea, seeing our reaction to the price of the recommended dish, brought a second plate and deftly made two servings of one. Until now, at the memory of that fish, I was drooling — it was so good! I am already silent about our farewell dinner at the restaurant, where we were the only visitors and sat wonderfully in the company of … the owner of the place. Mutual “compliments”, including alcoholic ones, made our way home very difficult, but how mentally we talked! Not done, of course, without curiosities and adventures.
For example, a tour guide in Nessebar was led by a polyglot guide: information for a mixed Russian-German-English-Danish group was given in 4 languages! Allegedly. Because I don’t know how foreigners are there, but we couldn’t even recognize our Russian.
Well, the adventures were – how could they be without them ?!
This, for example, happened immediately upon arrival. Housing we had without air conditioning, so the windows opened at night. On the balcony of the house across the street, just across from us, two young foreigners were talking to soft music, but … the city is old, the streets are uzysuenkie, and in the surrounding silence it seemed to me that they just scream in my ear!
My husband snored carelessly, and I, realizing that I could not sleep, began to think about how to quarrel in English. About half an hour later, pulling a spouse’s shirt instead of a dress, I took a deep breath and came out of the shadow of the balcony. Vis-à-vis, taken aback by surprise, interrupted the conversation, and I “entered”: “Hello! Do you speak English”? – I asked as if any other language suited me too. And without waiting for an answer, she continued with a feeling: “Knight! Aw wont that slip! Wai du yu edge? There was no more text, and I was silent. The guys, too, were silent, comprehending my speech. Fortunately, everything turned out! “Sori, madam” – a slight bow, and they retreated from the balcony …
I returned to the room by another person – a triumphant, who managed to win by the Action of not lovely polite boys, of course, but – myself, my own uncertainty and irritation! “Sorry, nobody appreciated” – I thought, but … I was very mistaken! In the morning, a neighbor on the floor told me with pride how the two guys in the house opposite were making it difficult for everyone to sleep, until “someone from ours in pure English gave them a“ taste ”!
