Visiting Nessebar, part I

Hi, there, dear readers, long time no see! It’s been a while since I wrote nothing at all. I wasn’t intended to be absent for so long. I apologize to you and to me! (I missed writing truly).

I believe that the best part of being away from the blogging activity is the positive energy and the desire to come back and post more. I’m back in the business now, and I have a lot of stories and good posts to share.

The vacation to Bulgaria was one of the reasons behind my absence. We’ve been planning this holiday for over a year, but then, sadly, the Corona Virus happened and we had to cancel all of our plans.

Therefore, September was the month of getting out of the house and enjoying a well deserved holiday after the quarantine and all the accumulated tension. We decided not to worry about having to buy too many things and waste a lot of cash, so we settled for an all-inclusive holiday, using a travel agent deal.

This was our first vacation out of the country, to be truthful, and we had emotions and concerns. The quarantine had ended, but that did not mean that there was still no danger. Therefore, we took all the protective precautions we could and went to enjoy our dream holiday.

We hadn’t booked an airplane, but we decided to drive to Bulgaria from Romania, because it’s not that far away and we could stop by and see our Bucharest relatives as well. To mention the fact that when leaving the country, we could take all the baggage we wanted and did not have to pay an extra charge.

And as such, we woke up early in the morning on Sunday morning to escape the Bucharest traffic and began our journey. I had our favorite songs downloaded, so it was lovely to see the cities in the dark while listening to good music.

We arrived in Bucharest on Sunday afternoon and stayed at our cousin’s apartment. We visited Bucharest, wandered around Herastrau Park, played games with friends in the evening, and enjoyed a delicious pizza. I already felt like the holiday had begun😄.

We woke up in the morning on Monday, had coffee, said goodbye and prepared for our long-awaited trip to Bulgaria.

There were no customs problems, so we drove to our destination at Sol Nessebar Palace in southern Bulgaria. One thing I’ve learned about Bulgaria is that the country is clean and green. In spite of Romania, where you can see trucks loaded with logs of timber, deforested woods, it’s the total opposite in Bulgaria.

The roadways, even the rural roads, are well-paved, and you seldom come across pits (I know that because the Waze App took care of showing us the way). One thing I always appreciated, too, was that everybody follows the rules in traffic. No one crosses the line, the speed limit is respected by us all. Indeed, there are more camera traffic controls than there are in Romania, but at least they work and everybody operates as a team, they value the rules and respect you as a driver.

I was impressed by the places I saw on the way to Nessebar. You can observe whole forests, majestic trees, natural flowers, and you can feel lost in the gifts of nature, while the clean air caresses you.

Around 1 pm, we arrived at Sol Nessebar and we had a hotel employee helping us with the luggage. For parking, we had to pay extra, but we wanted to make sure that the car was safeguarded.

For one moment, I could not believe that we had arrived. We were tired of the long road, of course, but I just laid in bed and tried to realize that we were away from Romania, after a difficult year on our long-awaited holiday. It felt surreal.

The weather was beautiful, it was so pleasant, and the sun was hot and burning. We had lunch at the hotel restaurant and went to the beach after that. There are indoor pools at Sol Nessebar Palace, but I wanted to feel the sand squeaking under my feet, to feel the warm embrace of the sun while listening to the waves of the sea.
