Day 242

Yesterday we had to change hostels because the other one was fully booked. Our new hostel has an amazing rooftop terrace/bar with this awesome view over this Unesco World Heritage city! I sat here last night and watched some fireworks go off behind the statue on El Panecillo Hill (on the left). Thanks to a tip…

Day 186

SO LONG FOR NOW EUROPE! Cliche aeroplane window photo, check! This is pretty much all I did today, other than wake up at the crack of dawn in the blistering cold to catch my plane to Cuba. Oh and, you know, get detained at the Santa Clara Airport for 3 hours once I arrived. So,…

Day 185

Last night I went out with my couch surfing host to a house party so I got a late start to my last day here in Europe. I hunted down the jewelled skeleton of the patron saint of spinsters and then the rest of the day in probably the best museum I have been to…

Day 170

So this morning I was rushing to try and get to the 10.30am free walking tour, on the way a bug Hungarian guy stopped me and took my map. I wasn’t sure what he wanted so I tried to grab it back off him and said “I’m fine mate, I’m need to meet someone and…

The main reason I returned to Bulgaria was to visit the Buzludzha Monument which was built by the Bulgarian communist regime and has now been abandoned for many years. My friend Yana told me about this epic abandoned structure when I was in Sofia a few months back. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to see it then…

I finished up my root canal treatment this morning. Total cost = $147 AUD. I finished the treatment earlier than expected so I decided to pack up and leave Sofia today. For a few days prior to arriving in Bulgaria I had used Couch Surfing to try and round up some people to head out…

Day 163

Last night I managed to find a dentist in sofia who spoke english, so this morning after going out to a (late) halloween party with my buddy Yana I stumbled down to the dentist half asleep at 7.30am. After doing some research online I figured I might need a root canal and the dentist confirmed…

Day 144

Wow. This. Place. Is. Amazing. Hands down Meteora is now my favourite place in the world. I don’t even know how to begin explaining how amazing today was. My Camera, SD Card and Laptop all hate me for taking way too many photos. I am thinking about writing a post about Meteora on my other…

Day 143

If you know me I don’t often use the words Magical, Magnificent, Beautiful or the expression “Mind Meltingly Surreal”, so if that is what I refer to a place as then it must be pretty freaking special. All of those things are exactly what Meteora is. I have wanted to visit Meteora ever since I…
