Another post I forgot to post. Better late than never:)
Summer is almost over, but we started traveling in may and ending it in September, so it’s cool, we still got time to chill. I’ve been going to the Bulgarian seaside; it’s more empty and wild than the Romanian one. Also good for wild camping, with forests, large empty beaches, beautiful country roads, fields that go on forever and an emptiness that soothes the soul.
We usually stay in Krapets and from there you can take your bike and just go for miles and miles. Last time we went from Krapets to Ezeretzs, taking the not so traveled country roads, between pine forests and sunflower fields, stopped on the beach in Ezeretz, than moved on to Shabla, a comunist seaside resort, funny and sunny, lots of contrast there too… Ezeretz is a village, with fruits and small roads, stone houses and beehives. The smell reminded me of the place i grew up in, in the country side, middle of Romania; summer smells the same everywhere. Like hot animal loo, fruits and the thirsty earth.
Then you can go on from Shabla to Tyulenovo, on a nice road…the only thing here is that we met some dogs on the way and was a little difficult to get pass them. After…my bike broke…so we had to do 35 km with a broken bike, in the dark, on a main road, was quite freaky but we made it home in the end. alive. trembling, but alive. Lucky me, Andreea gave me her good trek bike and she struggled with mine, as i was already on a breaking point.
In may we were in Greece, also biking a lot on our magic island. This we’re planning to do again in a couple of weeks, so…will be continued.
