The rocks of Belogradchik and the Balkan Mountains

The rocks of Belogradchik and the Balkan Mountains

]I’ve been racing around Europe for almost a month now and I am really starting to feel the effects. I haven’t written a thing for the website this entire week. I’m exhausted almost every night. I’ve managed to keep up with my photo editing somewhat, but I still have a lot to do.

Despite the poor condition of much of the physical infrastructure in Bulgaria, surprisingly enough they have some of the best wifi I’ve seen in Europe.

I’m still on my G Adventure trip through Romania and Bulgaria. The last two days I’ve been in Veliko Tarnovo, the old capital of Bulgaria. Today I’m in Belogradchik in the northwest part of the country, not far from Serbia. On Wednesday I’ll be in Sophia and on Friday I’ll be pulling into Istanbul by train.

On June 8th I’ll be flying from Istanbul to Vancouver by way of Berlin to speak at the TBEX conference. If you are in the Vancouver area, there are a few events I’ll be attending if you’d like to meet in person:

  • June 9, 8pm, G Adventures Concept Store: I’ll be speaking at the G Adventures Concept store in Vancouver about my travels, showing photos and answering questions.
  • June 10, 1-5pm, El Nido Restaurant: My This Week in Travel co-hosts and myself will be doing a meet up and recording a live show at El Nido in Vancouver near the convention center. Everyone is welcome and there is no cover charge. We expect several dozen bloggers and people in the travel industry to be in attendence.

Anyway, here are some things I thought you might find interesting:

    You’ve said it before- it’s a tough line between traveling and blogging. Tough to make time for both. I look forward to hearing more about Eastern Europe- I’m considering a trip there next year.
