One of my favorite things about living in Bulgaria is that it neighbors with Turkey. It look about 7 hours on a half empty, hellishly hot, overnight bus before we arrived in one of my favorite cities in the world, Istanbul.

Our hotel was in the best location, fairly clean, comfortable beds and a wonderful Turkish buffet breakfast.
