Almost home.

Only a few more kilometers before we arrive in Sunny Beach! These little cats visited 4 countries and driven over 2700 km in the last month, they are officially the  coolest camping cats I know.

Bulgaria loves us again!

We’re back in Bulgaria and without any problems. Today we’ll explore the capital city of Sofia and then tomorrow we head home to a good shower and a soft bed.

Culinary Macedonia.

Baba Cana in Kumonovo, Macedonia is probably the best restaurant in Eastern Europe.  They serve traditional “granny” style food on simply decorated thick wooden tables with traditional fabrics, colours and patterns. 
Matt and I knew nothing about Macedonian food before we arrived so we had no idea what to expect. The spices are Turkish, a result of 500 years under Turkish rule,  the meat is prepared with an Eastern European technic, cured,  smoked, salted, delicious.  They use olive oil and tomatoes like their Greek neighbors and even their wine is fantastic.
I fully support Macedonian food,  what a treat!
