Day to day events mostly cataloguing my complete lack of understanding and common sense!

To save space, the most recent blog entry will have relevant pictures in it, but after that the photos will be moved to Flickr for storage, and a link to them added to the blog post. If you want to see all the photos anyway then visit the Gostilitsa Flickr page here.

All Diary Entries


There is now a separate site with information on living in Bulgaria, including:

  • An introduction to Gostilitsa and all it has to offer
  • Day to day practicalities of shopping, paying bills, banking, insurance
  • Healthcare matters for people and pets
  • Public transport and issues relating to car ownership
  • Becoming a Bulgarian resident and learning the language
  • Tourism, public holidays, festivals, places to visit, hiking routes

Click here for the link.


Unfortunately I've been having an increasing number of problems with storage on this site, so I've decide to continue the diary section elsewhere. Click here for the link to the new site.  The old diary entries will remain here for anyone wishing to delve into the murky past

Headed to Gabrovo for shopping.  Went to snack bar first and bought 2 apple strudel rings for breakfast.  Walked along the river eating them.  Bought toms, peppers, carrots and onions at market then off to Billa for main shopping.  Forgot to weigh cucumber yet again so check-out girl had to go and do it.  Why do the cucumbers always fox me?

Back home - cup of tea at last!  Sun came out so began weeding side garden.  My own plants have spread really well (along with ginormous weeds) and the little apple trees look good.

Arrived about 4pm, new cat to greet us - little black and white kitten.  House usual cobwebby mess and side garden a wilderness.  Giant berry bush appears to have taken up residence in the wood shed too.
