As you may have noticed, this blog is called “Bulgaria with Noodles” because Irena and I are still in China, but in many ways our hearts are already in BG. But what will we do, once we have settled down in Bulgaria? A lot of travelling is fairly high on the list of priorities.

|A Church with a View, aka Asenovgrad|
|The Rila Monastery|
Let’s start with the most obvious places in BG (and no, we have not seen any of them): the Rila Monastery, the seven Rila lakes, Belgogradchik (it could have been Bulgaria’s inspiration for Tolkien’s Mordor), Plovdiv, the Devil's Bridge and Asenovgrad.

Oh, I should have mentioned that this is my fiftieth post and yesterday was my birthday (21 again). My blog is cruising to 11,000 "hits", but I am a bit disappointed because hardly anyone every bothers to write a comment at the bottom.
