If you’re wondering why I’ve been quiet, it’s because last week we pootled off to Sozopol for a little break with my family, and this week I’ve been generally readjusting to non-holiday life. Last week I was rolling out of bed and into the pool before eating a lovely cooked breakfast. This week I’ve been rolling out of bed and trying not to trip over any cats before eating, if I’m lucky, a boiled egg while hunched over my keyboard. Glam.
Here are some pics from beautiful, sunny Sozopol.
Our lovely villa…
|Nifty outdoor seating area.
And, OH MY GOD, I have to tell you about the bonkers, bonkers, batshit crazy, bonkers Ravadinovo Castle…
|Yes, it’s a newly built Bavarian castle. In Bulgaria. We were greeted at the entrance by a King who told us it was ‘tradition’ to have our picture taken with him so we could buy it for 5 leva as we left. They even put it on a fridge magnet.
|I mean, they really went to town on the place. Sadly, you can’t go inside as it’s still being built. But I cannot WAIT to go back one day and see what they do to the interior. I’m picturing Camelot crossed with Posh and Becks’ wedding. You?
|I can’t tell you how much I loved it there.
|They even had real (and very sharp) weapons left lying around for visitors to play with.
|This is the Grecian bit, obviously. Look, you should just go. It’s the best 10 leva I ever spent in my life.
