Bulgaria is our 12th country and first foray into the Balkan states.  We know little about Bulgaria and look forward to learning a bit about the country.  Bulgaria extends all the way to the Black Sea and deep into the Balkans.  We entered near Edirne, Turkey and are planning to ride fully across the country, exiting in Macedonia.  This trip was probably not possible when Nancy and I were growing up as Bulgaria was part of the Soviet bloc so waiting to do this trip until we entered our 50s has worked out, at least for Bulgarian travel.  Though we may have a different view once we hit the mountains!
