      Hey, really like your hubs. You see, we live in a world which is poisoned by media and regimes. Bulgaria is a fine place, so are all other places. We live in planet Earth.

          Hey, a few serious questions for you. First, what is the average price for a house in rural Bulgaria. Secondly, did you take Bulgarian citizenship? What was the procedure?

            Average price for a run down, needing repair/renovation house where I live is around 10,000 Euros or less. All depends on the amount of work needed etc.

            No, I'm a UK passport holder and haven't taken citizenship as I don't need to. Have the right to reside within the EU

              I see! That's affordable. Anyway, thanks for the information. The world is a small place indeed.

    Read a book about travels and what he says of the woman behind the hotel check in desk was something like, burly, brusque and smoking a cigarette.

    I met some amicable Bulgarian folks a few years ago in Vegas. They were nice people, proud of their country, just nice people overall.

    I know someone who went from the UK to Bulgaria and lived there for a number of years, somewhere in the middle of nowhere. He found the bureaucracy frustrating and now lives in Rome (personally I don't believe Italian bureaucracy is much better!).

    I don't have a closed mind to living elsewhere. Indeed, I lived in ex-Yugoslavia for five years. However, despite the rain and the economic problems of the region where I now live, I have fallen in love with Wales and now would not wish to live anywhere else.

    As to visiting Bulgaria. I might well do so one day. I used to travel abroad a lot. Now, I'm put off by the cattle-truck mentality of airline travel. Also, I now prefer short holidays of 3-4 days, where I learn and do things rather than going away for 2 weeks to tick items off a sightseeing list and/or fry myself on a beach. I find plenty of such activities relatively near to home. And I still need to work through my book of 100 places to see in Wales, which means mastering more Welsh since I have the Welsh edition, and then plan day trips and longer trips in order to visit them all smile
