Bacon wrapped dates stuffed with blue cheese on balsamic reduction.

Stuff dates with blue cheese, wrap with bacon, secure with a toothpick and fry in a pan until golden. Add a small amount of balsamic vinegar and LOTS of sugar to a small pot and let simmer until the mix has reduced to half (warring, this will stink up your house, open all windows before making your sauce).

Early morning walks in Sunny Beach.

This is what Sunny Beach looks like at night; bright lights, lots of tourists from around the world, people dancing, singing and having a great time.
